The Brimming Potential of Kelsey Mitchell and the Indiana Fever – WNBA.com

For the first time in franchise history, the Indiana Fever have won the WNBA draft lottery and possess the top overall selection. To say that this pick and the coming season are pivotal for the Fever as an organization would be a drastic undersell. Things have been tough in Indy, to say the least, since WNBA legend Tamika Catchings retired.

It’s poetic justice that Kelsey Mitchell, a beacon of positivity for the Fever in this recent era, was in ESPN’s Bristol studios to receive the selection and represent the team.

“I felt obliged to make sure I take on that responsibility on behalf of my team. For me, it was about a step in the right direction for leadership and to lead the team in the years to come. Getting that number one spot, it’s a step in the right direction of change…it adds to our resume to turn things around,” – Fever star, Kelsey Mitchell.

While the Fever endured a rough season, there were silver linings in the background.
