Locked on Women’s Basketball: Atlanta Dream’s Maya Caldwell is making the most of her WNBA chances

'My family has kept me sane throughout this process and they really carried me throughout this journey'

It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal and Atlanta Dream’s Maya Caldwell making the most of her WNBA chances and she shares how it’s all felt.

Maya Caldwell talks about her expectations coming into the year:

“Exceeded most definitely; I was not expecting my first WNBA season to look like this. So far, I am on my second dream. And it’s definitely something that I’m trying to take for granted. Being in and out of Atlanta. At first, it seemed wasn’t part of the plan to make the team be on the team consistently throughout the season but still be able to come back whenever they call and help out and be the best I can be.”

“My family has kept me sane throughout this process. They support me and love me. But they also pushed me and that I needed to do more.
