Skylar Diggins has had a busy week.

On Wednesday, the Tulsa Shock guard scored 19 points in Minnesota against the Lynx before flying three hours to Los Angeles for a skit with Drake at the ESPYs. She returned to Tulsa for Thursday afternoon's game against San Antonio and had 19 points in a victory just before flying to the All-Star game in Phoenix, where she will start Saturday.

Though Diggins is well known off the court — she has nearly a half million Twitter followers, posed for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, appeared in Vogue and has the league's No. 2 selling jersey — she is just as committed and successful on it. After a disappointing rookie year in 2013, she has emerged as the WNBA's second-leading scorer.
