This past season she was voted Most Valuable Player in the WNBA.

She made the 30 Under 30 Forbes list .

Then last month, her alma mater unveiled a statue in her honor.

Then her mother told her at one point in time her grandmother wasn't allowed on the campus.

Wilson says she is looking forward to this upcoming season.

The finals left a bad taste for her and her team, and she says it is fueling them to try to win the first championship for a Vegas Pro Sports Team.
