Angel Reese makes 'everybody hating' statement before vintage LSU performance

LSU forward Angel Reese knows she's constantly criticized on social media. According to her newest message, she's not taking the hate personally.

"Everyone hating wish they could swap lives with me & that's why i don't take yall serious," Reese said on Instagram before this weekend's 84-73 win over Ole Miss. 

To emphasize, she scored 21 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and played a season-high 39 of 40 minutes in the win.

Reese went national after winning Most Outstanding Player at last season's NCAA Tournament with an unabashed style that occasionally irritated opponents and neutral viewers. 

Her mysterious multi-week absence from the Tigers sparked unfounded public concern earlier this year, presumably because individuals wanted to downplay her fame.

Reese said, "I want people to realize that I'm not just an athlete," after returning to play in a win over Virginia Tech. Human here.

I experience. Each of us experiences stuff. The fact that so many people supported me over the previous week and a half showed me who cares about me."

Reese maintained: "My mental health comes first. Since I don't want to inflict injury or cancer in the locker room, I'll check my health first. Being able to reset to myself—I'm human. Not merely an athlete is fine. Professionals always do."

Due to an easy finish to non-conference play, head coach Kim Mulkey's team has had a calmer season. In SEC competition, the Tigers must rev up to beat South Carolina for a regular-season conference crown.

The competitors do this, Mulkey said. "That crowd came to see us; they consider it theirs. As your mindset gets louder, you block it out. No floor action is affected by that."
