Some quotes from the video:

For women's basketball, the turnaround is like super quick. If you play in the Final Four, you could have less than a week for the draft turnaround. You're going from saying goodbye to your teammates in college to playing with the likes of Candace Parker, Diana Taurasi. Nneka Ogwumike - wink there.

As amazing as draft night is, you know fulfilling your dream, it is equally scary because you don't know where you're going to end up, you don't know where you're going to move, you don't know who your new teammates are, you're like back as a freshman entering college, you're like the rookie at the bottom of the totem pole.
