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

For the first time in franchise history, Indiana Fever has won the WNBA draft lottery and has the top pick overall. To say that this election and the upcoming season is crucial for Fever as an organization would be a gross understatement. Things have been difficult 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 at ESPN’s Bristol studios to accept the pick and represent the team.

“I felt compelled to take on this responsibility on behalf of my team. For me it was a step in the right direction to leadership and to lead the team in the years to come. Achieving that first place is 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.
