In a new interview with the brand, Diggins describes her competitive fire, her motivation to always give back to the community, and her love for pressure moments on the court. She also models Nike’s Holiday 2015 Nike Tech Fleece Aeroloft collection, which is available now via select Nike retailers and at Nike.com/techpack.
Scroll through the photos above to get a closer look at the new collection, and here’s our favorite snippet from hers, the latest installment of Nike’s “Voice of the Athlete” series:
I’m very competitive. Cards, checkers, bowling…the list goes on and on. I’m trying to win. Sometimes I have to remember that when we’re at family functions that, “We’re here to have fun, Sky — don’t get competitive.”
There’s so much fake in the world. People are fake cool; people are around you telling you anything you want to hear, anything they think you want. And for me, I just want to remain genuine. I want to be somebody who was approachable, somebody who worked hard, a woman who gave back, who embodied femininity and the beauty-and-the-beast mentality. A hardworking basketball player, but so much more than that. And I think that, as I continue to grow older and take advantage of different opportunities, I’ll be evolving forever.
