On Sunday night, two-time WNBA Champion Candace Parker will become the first woman to work as an in-game color commentator during the NBA All-Star game.
Parker has been working as a sports analyst and commentator for NBA on TNT since 2018. She has also served as an analyst and commentator for NBA TV and CBS Sports.
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Parker shared, “I’m a fan first and foremost of the NBA and especially the All-Star Game. And so I think the fan of the game and the childhood Candace is—I have to pinch myself to believe that I’m doing it and that I’m able to have a courtside seat to see the best players in the world.”
