She may not have stepped on the court in last night’s All-Star Game, but Liz Cambage was the unofficial MVP of Twitter. 

The Las Vegas Aces star kicked it off with a show-stealing entrance featuring all of the sass we have come to know and love.

Unfortunately, despite being named in the starting lineup for Team WNBA, Cambage was unable to play due to a reportedly minor injury sustained in practice. The center has been dealing with achilles issues throughout the season and has been hitting it hard in Australia’s team camp the past week. Thankfully, Cambage plans to be healthy in time for the Olympics.

Her lack of presence on the court didn’t prevent her from having one off of it, however, as she sat back and took in the show.

“Honestly, it’s just a time that you get to relax and still really love the game and go out there and have fun with the girls,” Cambage said after the game. I was blessed just to still be on the bench today enjoying my popcorn and watching some great basketball and watching the girls get the win.”

She also was excited to get to play with Candace Parker, who she calls her “big sister” despite Cambage being the taller one in the duo.

I love being in the same locker room as Courtney Williams and J.J. and Candace,” she said. “It’s always been a dream of mine to play with Candace, and this is probably the only time we’re ever going to do it.”
