The Down Low

Reading about K-Mac, the theme over and over is how much she loves to play basketball. This love began in her childhood when she proved the boys wrong on the playground and fell asleep watching Michael Jordan highlights. Now, she is her own highlight reel. All that work on the court paid off because Kayla is a SHOOTER. In fact, in 2019, she shot the ball better from beyond the arc than from 2-point range.

McBride has also been open about how difficult it is to be away from the game. I encourage you to read her article about handling anxiety during the COVID pandemic when she was unable to play: "It's O.K to Fall Apart."

Notable Quotables

Some people play the game because they're good at it. Some people play because they're athletic. I do it because I am literally in love with it.

Highlight Reel

Here is a soothing video of K-Mac sinking threes to some good music for you to fall asleep to:
