This is undoubtedly one of the main rosters to come to La Molisana Magnolia Campobaso. The pivot of the #fiorid Acciaio for the 2021/22 tournament will be American (from Los Angeles) Reshanda Jaceta Gray, an element of the five seasons of militancy at the WNBA and currently ranked third on the sixth roster of New York Liberty (and Easterner Connor). He has been a key representation of the last two internal successes at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn: a return to 82-79 with eleven points and six rebounds against Washington on Saturday and again on Monday, again by three, against Dallas (99-96), in this case, eleven points and Six rebounds and chances – tomorrow (Friday 9) – a trip to the Indiana Dream Parquet is the best way possible to continue in the current row and close this episode (before the stop for the Olympics, the match against the Connecticut Sun on Sunday 11 July).
Great experience A 28-year-old center of 188cm, Gray has experience with the U.S. national team in the under-18 team and with the ‘A’ team that won gold at the Universidad in Kazan, Russia in 2013. For him, at home, in the context of Wnba, he has also gained experience in Minnesota, Atlanta and his Los Angeles, while abroad, he was employed in Italy (between Battipaglia and Naples), Hungary (Gair) and South Korea (including the formation of Incheon and Asan).
White Man Cant Jump Particular, however, is the personal story of #fiored Acciaio with stars and stripes.
Reshanda is, in fact, one of seven children in a troubled family (she has three brothers and many sisters): her normal parents, both of whom had drug problems, lived in a house on the outskirts of the California metropolis. Bedroom Bed (to lead the social welfare authorities in declaring the need for ‘foster care’ for the child).
The new campobasan totem, however, had a painful onset of adolescence due to frequent bad intercourse, as the person directly involved admitted, a road that was leading him to bad. To literally turn his life around is Tyrone Dinin, a white man who saw the great potential of very young Reshanda (already the tallest of his peers) in basketball. He, who had become a second father to her (enough to stay at home), was able to overcome his initial disbelief, stimulate her and firmly establish basketball in a way where – Magnolias’ pivot-meeting, as a high school student, the late Kobe. Was particularly important with Bryant.
The Italian return is more or less the recent past and present, which, however, now has to do with what the future holds for Gray.
A ‘Tomorrow’ for women’s third experience at A1 called Molise and Campobaso. “I love Italy – he explains – because it’s one of my favorite countries and I really like its championship because of its high technical quality.”
In his fifth season at the WNBA Skills US Professional League, Gray admits that he currently has some experience, but my goal is always to be precisely defined: to be the best player on and off the field. And that’s why I always try to do my best. “
The successful team is a goal that the American Pivot is ready to forcibly relocate from even parts of the arena.
“Of course – he warns – the goal is always to win at the individual level, but we are disciplined as a team and so it is very important to succeed collectively.”
Last Chance Among other things, Gray’s basketball philosophy is none other than the daughter of Gray’s own life experience. “I enjoy every opportunity that basketball offers me as if it were the last and so I try to give my best because I think there are a lot of people who want to be in my position.”
Larger and smaller cities will be there to get used to his big city life – as was already the case in his first Italian experience – again facing a more human-sized reality. “I’ve already played in Battipaglia – he remembers – so I’m used to it, really a chance to get everything in hand.”
Supporter Thanksgiving will be able to communicate with Graeo Rossblue supporters in Campobasso, and more specifically in the arena. To them, from the states, he has already sent a clear message: “Thank you for what you welcome – he mentioned – and, personally, I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I’m already thinking in Italy.”
No Promise Concrete, like all Americans, Magnolias’ pivot makes no promises for himself and the environment: “All I can say – he answers – I can’t wait to play great team with friends and in a warm environment.”
Eurocup prospects are very happy, but Gray welcomes Eurocup prospects. “Participating in the European Cup is always a pleasure, not just for traveling around the continent, because teams of absolute depth face each other and I can’t wait to project myself into this competition.”
