What Up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with the legendary Cappie Pondexter. Born in Oceanside California. Grew up in Chicago, Illinois. Attended John Marshall Metropolitan High School in Chicago followed by Rutgers University 2002-2006. In the WNBA draft she was a first round pick, selected second overall by the Phoenix Mercury. As a rookie, she earned the honor of being selected to the western conference WNBA All Star Team. She went on to earn the following accolades: 2x WNBA Champion, WNBA Finals MVP 2007, 7x WNBA All-Star, 4x Turkish National League Champion, 2007 Turkish Cup Winner, 2x Russian National League Champion, and 3x Russian Cup Winner. She is also an Olympian. In 2008, Cappie represented the United States on the Women’s Basketball Team in Beijing winning gold. Cappie’s name is on the list of the WNBA’s Top 15 Players of All Time. In addition to Cappie’s accomplishments in athletics, she created a successful company called 4 Seasons Style Management which gives her an entrepreneurial outlet for her love for fashion. Get Up Nation, welcome with me one of the finest athletes this earth has ever seen: Cappie Pondexter.
