Angel Reese wants to see Michael Jordan sitting courtside at a Chicago Sky game. The No. 7 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft has never met the Chicago Bulls legend before but wants that to change after being selected by the city’s women’s basketball team.

Reese, 22, had hundreds of thousands of viewers watching her preseason debut at the Minnesota Lynx. Then, days later, she made her home debut with Chicago Bears quarterback Caleb Williams watching from the front row.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft was alongside new Bears teammates Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze in the stands for the Sky’s blowout win over the New York Liberty. Reese now wants Jordan there.

“I want Michael Jordan to come to a game,” she told WGN-TV. “I’m telling you right now, I want Michael Jordan to come to a game. I’ve never met him. That’s the only person I really want to come to a game.”

But it is not just sports stars who she expects to see in the stands. “Everybody is going to be courtside,” she told reporters after her home debut. “The celebrities are going to be courtside, just know. The who’s who are going to be courtside.

“I was at the Met Gala, and Usher’s going to try to come up to a game in (Las) Vegas and Cardi B. I know some people that y’all might not think I know.”

Reese is also expecting a sellout for her homecoming in the DMV. “Games are going to be packed,” Reese said. “Standing room only sometimes. We might get those.

“They just told us when I go back home to Washington, we’re playing where the Wizards play [Capital One Arena]. So the change is happening, and it’s not going to stop here.”

Reese, from Randallstown, Maryland, and Williams, a Washington, D.C. native, are both hoping to turn the city’s sporting fortunes around over the coming years. “I know Caleb from back home, and having those kind of conversations, talking about how we can turn the city up and do so many great things while we’re here,” she told NBC Sports Chicago after the Liberty game.

“It’s just great being able to bring that winning culture back to Chicago in all sports, not just football and baseball as well, but everybody, so just being able to have a city that’s winning and everybody loves you from all different kinds of sides. Being able to come together for the community for the right thing is something I’ve always emphasized.”

She knew Williams was coming to her home debut and expects to reciprocate the show of support this season once the NFL gets underway this fall. “Being able to have men and women respected on both sides – they’re going to come to our games. We’re going to go to their games.”
