Angel Reese and Flau’jae Johnson, LSU’s NCAA Women’s Basketball Champions, recently stopped by “The Breakfast Club” and talked about life after winning the Championship.
Angel Reese and Flau’jae are two of the highest-paid athletes in NCAA Women’s Basketball through NIL (name, image, and likeness) deals.
And even with the NIL stuff, like, me and Flau’jae we’re leading in NIL, as black women.
Like, you gotta realize that.
So, just being able to be in this moment, I mean, I embrace it for real.
Angel and Flau’jae currently make more money than women who play professional basketball in the WNBA.
Both women said they feel very blessed to be in the position that they are in, and they are in no rush to play in the WNBA.
They want to win more championships for LSU, and hopefully, by the time they graduate the WNBA will have gotten their act together.
But, I think that should put, like, the WNBA on notice forreal, like…
Y’all gotta start getting right, you know what I”m saying?…
Because, like, we in college right now, we getting chartered flights, free food, all of this, right?…
Charter flights, we getting paid, we got NIL now, it’s like give me something to, like… You know what I’m saying?…
NBA legend Shaq, who played college basketball at LSU, made headlines for calling Angel Reese “the greatest athlete to come out of LSU Sports.”
Angel said she called uncle Shaq and told him:
Do you know how much pressure you just put on me?…
And he said, ‘I don’t give a f***!’…
I was like alright… ‘Alright unc!’
You may recall that Lolo Jones got really bent out of shape about it!
Flau’jae is the daughter of rapper Camoflauge, who died before she was born to gun violence.
She is also a rapper with a bubbling rap career.
During the interview, she talked about managing her rap and basketball careers.
She also mentioned several artists reaching out to her to do music, including Lil Wayne.
She said she is very excited about the Lil Wayne collaboration.
Flau’jae has a distribution deal with Roc Nation, and she has bars, which she had no problem putting on display during the interview.
The women also discussed the hand gesture to Caitlain Clark in the championship game that made national news, Jill Biden wanting to invite the losing team to the White House, and not wanting to date any “short kings.”
Angel Reese revealed that Drake and Future slid in her DMs to “congratulate” her.
Both Angel and Flau’jae are very smart women, that know what they want out of life, and “The Breakfast Club” interview did a great job displaying their personalities and ambitions.
