Since joining the league as the eighth overall pick in the 2014 WNBA draft, Atlanta rookie guard Shoni Schimmel has brought in a new fan base from New York to LA.
That phenomenon was on full display at the US Airways Center as thousands of fans waited for Schimmel, who won the WNBA All-Star game MVP award on July 19, to make a cameo appearance at the end Tuesday night's regular season game between the Phoenix Mercury and the Atlanta Dream.
"It's awesome and I'm grateful," Schimmel said while addressing the crowd. "You guys traveled across the country to make this game. Thanks for coming, it means the world to me."
