I can't help who I fall in love with. No one can.
To me, the most important thing is happiness.
Some people might say my coming out after just winning the MVP award is heroic, and I understand that.
I never thought a basketball shoe would be named after a woman, let alone me.
Being gay has nothing to do with the three gold medals or the three MVPs or the four championships I've won. I'm still the same person. I'm Sheryl.
You have to be positive, and I'm not just talking about athletics, this also applies to life.
It didn't matter how good I was. It was always, 'You're a girl. You can't play with the guys.' It's always been motivation for me.
For me, honestly, it's not about individual accomplishments, individual award. It's about what I've got to do and how I can contribute to the team.
I'm at a place in my life right now where I'm very happy, very content. I'm finally OK with the idea of who I love, who I want to be with.
No matter how far life pushes you down, no matter how much you hurt, you can always bounce back.
