| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Candace Parker, who is set to become a mother in a few months, told The New York Times that she plans to play this season in Los Angeles.

"My whole career has been trying to please people in basketball," Parker, a 22-year-old newlywed, said Friday in a telephone interview. "Now it's time to please myself." She added, "For me, family has always come first."

Parker, who was married in November to her longtime boyfriend, Sacramento Kings forward Shelden Williams, is due in the spring. The W.N.B.A. season starts in June and runs through September.

"I'm very stubborn," she said. "I feel like I'm going to play this season."
