A Chica­go Sky press con­fer­ence was inter­rupt­ed by an out­side con­ver­sa­tion about an “inti­mate rela­tion­ship,” lead­ing to an awk­ward moment for play­er Angel Reese and her teammates.

The 22-year-old Reese, who was named to the 2024 WNBA All-Star team, was par­tic­i­pat­ing in a post-game press con­fer­ence along with head coach Tere­sa Weath­er­spoon and guard Mari­na Mabrey.

Dur­ing the press con­fer­ence, a reporter’s ques­tion about Reese’s WNBA record 13th con­sec­u­tive dou­ble-dou­ble was inter­rupt­ed by a con­ver­sa­tion in the background. 

A female voice was heard say­ing “Are we ever going to have an inti­mate rela­tion­ship?” to which a male voice respond­ed “I nev­er had any inter­est in being inti­mate with anyone.”

Reese, Weath­er­spoon and Mabrey looked tak­en aback by the inter­rup­tion, with Reese cov­er­ing her mouth in sur­prise. Mabrey com­ment­ed “They’re being weird on that,” while anoth­er per­son on the call asked “What’s going on?”

The unex­pect­ed events were lat­er revealed to be due to “a live audio feed of a slight­ly risquĂ© scene from the [TV show] ‘Big Bang The­o­ry’ on WGN on the Zoom feed,” accord­ing to The Chica­go Tribune.

Despite the awk­ward inter­rup­tion, Reese made league his­to­ry on Sun­day, sur­pass­ing Can­dace Park­er’s pre­vi­ous WNBA record of 12 con­sec­u­tive double-doubles. 

The Sky’s loss did not dimin­ish Reese’s impres­sive per­for­mance, as she record­ed 17 points and 14 rebounds.

The Sky will face the Dream in Chica­go on Wednes­day as Reese con­tin­ues her stand­out rook­ie season.
