Cappie Pondexter Talks Mental Health, Being In The Zone, and More on Soul Talk

Cappie Pondexter

Two-time WNBA champion and 2007 WNBA Finals MVP Cappie Pondexter is the featured guest on the fourth episode of Soul Talk: Tapping Into The Zone.

Cappie was named one of the 15 greatest WNBA players of all time in 2011. Since retiring in 2019 she has stayed active and influential on and off the court.

Similar to former Lakers champion John Celestand in the first episode, Cappie described the zone as being a “quiet place”, and how, “nobody is around, so nobody matters”.

It’s cool to be in the zone in basketball, but the real question is being in the zone in real life.

Cappie talks more about how she’s transitioning to her life after basketball, the power of overcoming obstacles, and more.
