Kelsey Plum: The Winner
Kelsey grew up as the youngest of the three Plum sisters and the second-last of the family’s four children. Kaitlyn and Lauren, her older sisters, played volleyball like their mother, Katie. Dan, the older brother’s younger brother, played football, just like their dad. Every family activity turned into a competition.
First, the family’s car. The first person to fasten their seatbelt got gum. Who can finish washing the dishes the quickest? Left-handed dinner. Right-handed dinner.
Kelsey’s older sister, Lauren, says, “My family is a little bit crazy.” “It’s all just a game. Kelsey took things very personally, and she used that to make her even angrier. Being the youngest girl is hard. Everyone is already two years ahead of you in terms of growth.”
Kelsey wanted to go in her direction. She didn’t play the same sport as her sisters or go to the same school. Kelsey didn’t like her teacher when she switched schools in the fourth grade. Jim and Katie told Kelsey that she needed to talk to the principal if she wanted to switch classes. If nothing changed after that talk, they would step in and help.
So, Kelsey, who was in the fourth grade, went to the principal’s office and requested a meeting. Kelsey said, “It’s personal,” when the receptionist asked why. Just like her dad told her to. Kelsey was taken to the principal’s office, where she calmly told him that she wanted to switch classes. After hearing her, the principal put her in a different classroom.
She slowly became obsessed with winning, this winning spirit helped her win 19 major awards throughout her career. Most recently, she was named MVP of the WNBA All-Star Game In 2022.
