Published on July 3rd, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 175,938 views

You probably know her as the “NBA2k Girl,” but before she was the best thing about 2k15 and even before she was interviewing future NBA stars like Kelly Oubre and Stanley Johnson for us and appearing on billboards and walking runways as a model, Rachel DeMita was a legit baller who played D1 college ball.

This is her insightful story about why she walked away from playing basketball, which was ruining her love for the game, found herself and then found a way to contribute to the sport she loves while contributing to her happiness. Ball is Life!

And FYI, her midrange jumper is still better than yours! Damn right, it’s better than yours.
