“I can’t say one that I haven’t met. But I want to meet Michael Jordan. That’s my next person,” Reese revealed.

Reese herself shot to fame after the swimsuit deal with Sports Illustrated. Her NIL valuation increased to almost $1.4 million, and she became a household name. She also gained a lot of popularity for her on-court antiques during the NCAA Championship 2023. Her rivalry with Iowa Hawkeyes star Caitlin Clark made headlines as Reese did the ‘You can’t see me’ gesture against Clark.

Post her shoot to fame, Reese signed a barrage of NIL deals. The recent most popular deal was signed when the NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal became the President for Basketball for the sporting giant, Reebok. In order to revive their global image, Reebok signed Shaq who inked a deal with Reese as his first move.

Reese reminisced on the show of their meeting when the LSU’s assistant head coach Bob Starkey had introduced her to the 4x NBA Champion. In addition to Shaq, Reese has also met her favorite pop stars – Beyonce and Jay Z.
