To say that the 2024 WNBA Draft class is loaded would be an understatement. These women have brought in a lot of viewers from the NCAA all the way to Cathy Engelbert's league. A key person amid all of this was Angel Reese. The LSU legend turned Chicago Sky rookie has been making headlines. Usually, this makes someone's personality crack but not her. She has remained quite a good role model for aspiring young women in sports. This insane acumen to notch charisma while having a different type of prowess on the court turned the head of Dwyane Wade.

Despite spending all his time in South Beach and the Miami Heat during his career, Dwyane Wade is still a man of Chicago. He went back to play for the hometown Chicago Bulls during the twilight of his career. Now, he spends a big chunk of his time in this city with his family. This also means catching the Sky's games and supporting it quite a lot. A staple in all of their matchups is Angel Reese.

Now, Dwyane Wade has children who might also want to be athletes in the future. So, who is the role model that they are loving and constantly following around right now? Of course, it's the insanely talented Sky rookie and LSU legend. Angel Reese's character has been quite revered and even caught some praise from Wade. He posted it on his Instagram story.

“Seeing is believing! Thank you [Angel Reese] for being a model for all of our daughters!” he wrote.

The Wades caught the Sky game against the Connecticut Sun. Despite the tough 86 to 82 loss of the home team to the Dewanne Bonner-led squad, Wade's daughters will remember it as the day they saw their idol. Truly, the members of the 2024 WNBA Draft Class are impacting more than just the game of basketball.

Despite just being an official WNBA player for a little under two months, Reese has already shown that she can carry over the same production from LSU to the Sky. Coach Teresa Witherspoon has entrusted her to play 29 minutes per contest and she did not let her head honcho down.

Reese knocks down her shots from all three levels of scoring with a 35.7% clip. This helps her average 12.3 points in her first four games in the WNBA. But, she also showcased more than just her scoring ability. The 2024 WNBA draftee has been a great presence under the rim. Her great positioning and footwork made her notch 7.8 rebounds on a nightly basis. The impressive part is that 4.5 of those come from the offensive glass which gives the Sky a big advantage when it comes to second-chance points.

The Sky also got a defensive menace when they got her in the WNBA Draft. She has been a terrific point-of-attack defender and does well in backing down from the perimeter all the way to the painted area. Her keen eye for the ball when it comes to her opponents' dribbling movements or tells when it comes to passing allowed her to notch 1.5 steals per contest.
