Article about Angel McCoughtry at the AJC

Sekou Smith of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution writes about Angel McCoughtry and her transition to pro ball.

Give it a read. An interesting little segment:

After working her way through the crowd and then back out on the floor to meet up with her father Roi and a small group of friends, she dragged her exhausted body and everyone with her to Gladys and Ron’s Chicken and Waffles for a late-night celebration dinner.

It was only after the party was seated that the servers and a manager came over to offer congratulations on the opening night win and welcome her back — McCoughtry had shown up just days before, dining alone with a smile on her face as she eased into her new life.

“I don’t need a chaperone,” McCoughtry said with a smile. “Like I said, I love it here. I’m definitely trying to make Atlanta home.”
