Angel Reese has become one of the most famous basketball players in the world. Overall, this designation is very well deserved. During the March Madness tournament for women's basketball, Reese was able to lead her LSU Tigers to a National Title. Subsequently, this led to controversy over her taunts at Caitlin Clark. However, most rational people realized that Angel had done nothing wrong. Either way, she is a huge National star right now, and she is stacking accolades.

Moreover, her LSU team is stacked with new talent. Consequently, there is this sense that the Tigers are going to go back-to-back. It's hard to see why they wouldn't seeing as though they are loaded. Now, however, Angel Reese is getting recognized in another way. Today, it was revealed that she would be on the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

SI Swimsuit editor-in-chief MJ Day got to talk about Reese and why they chose her for this cover. As you can see, it was due to her amazing achievements, and what she means to women's basketball. “Angel Reese is a phenomenal basketball player,” Day explained. “She’s an All- American and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament. While we’re of course here to celebrate her incredible achievements and athleticism, it wouldn’t be an SI Swimsuit moment if we weren’t shining a light on Angel’s achievements off the court."

At this point, it is safe to say that Angel Reese is going to be a star for years to come. She is an amazing basketball player who will be in the WNBA soon enough. For now, however, she is building a legacy at LSU. We cannot wait to see what she pulls off next.
