On the eve of her team’s season opening game against the defending WNBA champion Detroit Shock, Candace Parker gave an interview to the guys at PTI (ESPN) to talk about her transition to motherhood and upcoming return to basketball. Watch it below:

I bemoan these corporate sponsorships of individual teams in the league. Someone likened it to Nascar with all the sponsor companies plastered all over the cars. I want to see team names on the front of athlete jerseys, not “Farmers Insurance” or some other sponsor. I know the WNBA is bleeding money, but this sets a dangerous precedence that I’m not sure anyone’s going to like further down the line. But it is what it is. Good luck to the Los Angeles Sparks presented by Farmers Insurance!

Cute interview! Sparks vs. Shock on ABC at 2:30 PM (ET).

UPDATE: Candace’s daughter is named Lailaa
