In her prime and at the height of her professional basketball career, Washington Mystics guard and reigning WNBA champion Natasha Cloud opted out of the 2020 season to focus on the fight for equality and social justice. On this episode of “The Tuff Juice Podcast,” Natasha talks with Caron Butler about her decision to not play this season and why she doesn’t judge her sisters who are playing in the WNBA bubble, why silence and neutrality is no longer acceptable from athletes (or anyone), the significance of her shoe sponsor Converse covering her lost WNBA wages, why she’s incensed by the league’s treatment of her star teammate Elena Delle Donne, the one action she wants everyone to take, why nobody should vote for Kanye West, her shocking experiences playing basketball abroad, and much more. Natasha is an inspirational leader and you don’t want to miss a word of what she’s talking about!
