Natalie Williams, general manager of the Las Vegas Aces, is gearing up for a win of a lifetime. She could become the first Black general manager in WNBA history to win back-to-back titles.
And yet Williams is no stranger to winning as a player herself.
The Utah native was coaching basketball in Salt Lake City at her successful Natalie Williams Basketball Academy when the call came to join the Aces.
“It was a pretty big business, and it was a challenge for me to give that up and one I didn’t want to give up,” Williams told Outsports in a previous report. “I definitely miss coaching the youth. It was an incredible joy for sure.”
“The biggest thing for me is that people like myself, and anyone in the WNBA, finds an avenue to somehow, with all of these amazing players in the league who are part of the community, reaches out to the youth who are struggling,” she said, per Outsports.
