Kamilla Cardoso is as big a name as Angel Reese. And that showed when she was drafted as the third overall pick by the Chicago Sky. Next, she was spotted at the Sky training camp, and at the end of day two, the 23-year-old met local media to speak about various topics including her time at the camp. Her replies gave a sneak peek of what goes inside the making of a star player.

The same video was posted on the YouTube channel of ‘Chicago State of Mind Sports.’ The snippet soon had a lot of views considering fans were excited to know Cardoso’s experience.

The 23-year-old gave an insight into her time at the training camp. She accepted that though the ball was a competitive sport, still there was much love between her teammates.

“I learned a lot um we learned a lot of plays and I learned a lot about loving WNBA first I came here I didn’t know what to expect how it was going to be everybody always thought me like oh it’s going to be like a job everybody is competing but this girls actually show me so much love they helped me a lot like learning the play and just like being able to get through drills and stuff like that so it’s amazing,” stated Cardoso.

As mentioned Cardoso was the overall number three pick whereas Reese was picked by the Sky at number seven. Both were considered rivals during their time at the NCAA since Reese represented the Lousiana State University Lady Tigers.

On the other hand, Cardoso was a player at the South Carolina Gamecocks. Notably, the Gamecocks stopped the Lady Tigers in their tracks twice- once during the regular season and at another time during the SEC tournament.

Now that the two stars have been drafted by the same team, it will be interesting to see if they continue their rivalry by battling for the same spot in the team, or play together as colleagues. While Reese is famous for her double-doubles, Cardoso is no less in rebounds. Hence, its fans will be keen to see the defensive wall built by the Sky this season. On another note, Cardoso also spoke about the teammates that helped her.

Cardoso noted that “Diamond, Brianna everybody’s been helping me.” For the record, Cardoso is now teammates with Diamond DeShields and Brianna Turner.

DeShields had won the WNBA Championship with Sky in 2021, Turner has been newly acquired by Chicago but has been with the Phoenix Mercury since 2019. Fans would be excited to know that her teammates are guiding her.

Perhaps it is this love and support that athletes need to blossom in their careers. And hopefully, fans would see both Cardoso and Reese giving their best donning the same jersey.
