You don't have to talk to Natasha Cloud for very long to realize just how much she is enjoying life these days.

The Cardinal O'Hara High School product, who was a star at St. Joseph's University, is in the midst of her third season in the WNBA with the Washington Mystics and relishing every minute of it.

“It's just a blessing to be able to play basketball for my career and to do what I love for a job,” Cloud recently told KYW Newsradio. “It's been an amazing journey and it continues to be and I'm just extremely blessed and humbled to be where I'm at.”

Cloud was a second-round draft pick of the Mystics in 2015. She was a starter for most of her first two seasons in the league. This season she has come off the bench exclusively, but hasn't missed a beat, averaging 4.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 18.1 minutes a game, helping Washington to a 10-8 record.
