Candace Parker to Release Personal Documentary

ESPN Films will soon release a documentary featuring Candace Parker, the future Hall of Fame basketball star and television analyst. In this film, Parker introduces a different side of herself as the proud wife and mother of two. She describes being a wife and mother as her biggest goal and accomplishment thus far. Titled “Candace Parker: Unapologetic,” the documentary provides an intimate look into both the highlights and challenges of Parker’s life, both on and off the basketball court. It follows her journey throughout the 2022 season and provides exclusive insights into her story up to this point.

Parker hopes that audiences will be able to relate to the different aspects of her life showcased in the film. She also wants other wives, partners, and mothers to identify with the balancing act of parenthood. From an athletic perspective, Parker wants viewers to appreciate the competitive drive and pursuit of championships that fuels her career.

The documentary covers significant moments in Parker’s life, including her ACL tear in high school, her successful collegiate career, her daughter’s birth, her divorce from NBA star Shelden Williams, and her role in leading the Chicago Sky to their first WNBA title in 2021. In February, Parker signed with the defending champion Las Vegas Aces, who are currently competing in the WNBA Finals against the New York Liberty.

Despite her previous experiences in the spotlight, Parker admits feeling nervous about revealing her vulnerable moments and personal life to the world. She considers herself a private person but believes that showcasing authenticity is a powerful and courageous decision. That’s why she titled the film “Unapologetic” as a reminder to never apologize for pursuing personal happiness and goals in life.
