Sabrina Ionescu Would Hustle Grown Men On The Court For Slurpee Money At Age 10

2020 WNBA Draft No. 1 pick Sabrina Ionescu of the New York Liberty joined “#NBATogether with Ernie Johnson” on May 13 at 7 p.m. ET on the NBA’s Twitter account (@NBA).

 The social talk show, hosted by TNT’s Inside the NBA host, features high-profile guests from across the basketball community.

After each show, highlights and clips will also be available via the @NBAonTNT Twitter account. Johnson probes into the lives of guests who often deliver some insightful and surprising anecdotes about their lives.

Ionescu, arguably the greatest college women’s player ever, grew up playing with a lot of boys. Not only did she play with them, but she told Johnson that she’d team up with her brother and would hustle dudes at the local courts for Slurpee money when she was about 10 years old.

Ernie Johnson: “Were you guys really hustling people at the courts?”

Sabrina Ionescu: “Oh, all the time!”
