    @theellenshow PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, have more interviews with women’s basketball athletes. Both the NCAA and especially the WNBA athletes. These women are amazing. They are doing great things on the court, for the game, but also in their communities. I think there’s a lot of great stories to be told with them. You also have the GOAT living in your backyard of Los Angeles, in the Diana Taurasi. You also have the Sparks who have made amazing Finals runs in the last couple seasons of the WNBA. I would love to see more talk about the college side of things. Like Arike hitting the big shot. Geno Auriemma and his program. So many great interviews that could be had. Thank you for having Arike on!!!
