News: Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports Protégé Joins Craze, Releases Her Own Twerk Clip [Video]
Saturday, Sep 28, 2013 12:50PM
Roc Nation Sports' Skylar Diggins is heating up the Internet this weekend after releasing a sweat-dripping twerk video of herself and teammates for the world to see.
After coming off a tough WNBA season, Skylar treated fans to seeing her off-court moves.
The hype brought by the WNBA's 2013 Draft Class has drastically died down, and if you're one of the people who are still paying attention, you'd know the conference finals are taking place. Brittney Griner is the highly-touted rookie who's still currently playing as the Phoenix Mercury face off against the Minnesota Lynx. Skylar Diggins, on the other hand, had her season ended early with the Tulsa Shock. The team posted one of the league's worst record and got knocked out of playoff contention. It's too bad, but it does give her some extra time for some twerking with her friends. This isn't some type of coping mechanism for the disappointing ending to the season, although it would be funny if "#sadtwerk" suddenly became a trending topic because of this. Diggins looks like she's legitimately having a good time. Also, this video is probably getting a bit more attention than the playoffs. (Complex)
Earlier this summer, Roc Nation Sports head Jay Z set up a special event for Diggins.
Jay-Z is treating the clients that sign to his latest business venture, Roc Nation Sports, with the same passion he treats the musical artists he signs and fosters. He went all out for former Notre Dame women's basketball diva Skylar Diggins, welcoming her to the Roc Nation Sports family with a private reception at his 40/40 Club. The fete was held on Thurs., May 30, and you can see photos of Jay deep in conversation with the lovely Diggins below. She's a stunner -- if she wasn't so talented at hoops, she could be a model.

Prior to the big gathering, Jay bought Skylar a fancy graduation present in the form of a Mercedes-Benz.
College graduation is a day to celebrate accomplishments and toast to the future. Some people may even get thoughtful gifts from friends and family. For former Notre Dame basketball player Skylar Diggins, graduation day will certainly be unforgettable. Diggins currently plays guard for the WNBA's Tulsa Shock and graduated Sunday from Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business. Her agency, Jay-Z's Roc Nation, surprised her with quite the gift. Diggins left her graduation ceremonies and was surprised in the parking lot with a brand new white Mercedes, complete with a red bow and a handwritten note from Jay himself. Diggins posted a collage of photos of the car on her Instagram account with the caption, "Got surprised with a new Mercedes! Thanks so much to Jay and @rocnation, and @dancyautogroup!" (NESN)
Diggins became an official Roc Nation Sports client in late April.
When a former college basketball women's star gets drafted into the WNBA, you rarely pay attention to what sports agency she signs with. However, this one should warrant a little bit of attention. Of course by now we know all about Jay Z and his latest sports endeavor -- he's become a sports agent and has already started RocNation Sports. Well on Thursday morning, Jay Z signed his latest client as Skylar Diggins reportedly agreed to be represented by RocNation. Diggins isn't and won't be the headline figure at RocNation, but it's still an intriguing move. Diggins was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft less than two weeks ago and was widely considered to be one of the top three recognizable players in women's basketball aside of Britney Griner and Elana Delle Donne.
