Nicole Powell | in Dallas seems to have a travel story to complain about, but Nicole Powell was thrilled to tell hers.

After 15 hours of flying from Turkey, where she plays for a pro club, Powell is following up her first WNBA All-Star season with a NBA All-Star experience this weekend. She is teaming tonight with Tyreke Evans and Chris Webber for Sacramento in tonight’s Shooting Stars competition.

“I’m so excited to be here,” said Powell, a Phoenix native, who played at Mountain Pointe High. “It’s a quick trip but so worth it. My mom (Ruth) got to come. I get to hang out and share it with her so it’s worth it.”

Powell was the WNBA’s eighth-leading scorer last season for the Sacramento Monarchs, who disbanded. She was taken first in the dispersal draft by New York.

Her Sacramento team is the least favored of the four in tonight’s contest.

“Everyone is totally sleeping on us,” she said. “It’s ridiculous.”
