Kym Hampton will undoubtedly go down as one of
the most dominant centers in women’s basketball.
Known for her tough moves around the basket and
tenacious rebounding, the Louisville, KY native’s
playing career spanned over two decades and four
continents.
As a key figure in the history of the WNBA and New
York Liberty, Kym’s WNBA career began against
the Los Angeles Sparks, as she and Lisa Leslie
tipped off the league’s inaugural game, June 21,
1997. Hampton scored the first basket in the team’s
history and started every game for the Liberty
during the franchise’s first three seasons. Due to an
injury, Kym ended her fifteen-year professional
career and was inducted into the New York Liberty Ring of Honor.
Kym’s career has not been limited to the basketball court. As an accomplished singer,
she has performed at The CMA’s, Madison Square Garden, Birdland, The Blue Note,
Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar and live on ESPN for the Women’s NCAA Basketball
Championship Game. Ms. Hampton is a plus-sized model and co-created the Stand Tall
Line, with Ashley Stewart. She was featured in print adds as well as a national
commercial for the Cover Girl Queen Collection makeup line. As a theater major, Kym
has also graced the Film and Television world. She was featured in Spike Lee’s movie
She Hate Me, and TV shows like The Revolution, Mom’s Got Game and the Cosby
Show.
Kym currently freelances in Community Relations with the NY Liberty, WNBA and other
organizations. She is a sought after Motivational – Inspirational speaker, with a soft spot
for girls and student athletes. While her influence and community involvement are
unmeasured, Ms. Hampton is committed to making a difference in the lives of people by
helping them see the power of choice.
