Even with no basketball being played, Natasha Cloud of the defending WNBA champion Washington Mystics is as much of one off the court as she is on it.

In addition to winning a ring last year in Washington, she has also been one of the most notable WNBA stars that has used her voice to lend support and awareness of the Black Lives Matter movement and the issue of systemic racism in this country.

Cloud is also making moves away from the court as she landed an endorsement deal through Converse. It made her the first woman athlete signed to the Nike-owned shoe brand since it relaunched its basketball endeavors.

She attended a protest in Philadelphia and also penned an article in The Players’ Tribune where she called out any athlete who is silent on the topic of systemic racism.
