On Wednesday, Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne took over the NBA’s Instagram Account, giving a live Q&A with fans, She answered a number of questions, including the following:

EDD knows how to fight off the trolls!

When the WNBA MVP has to answer a question about WHO SHE IS in the very beginning, I can’t think of a better way to reply than this.

She likes her 2K rating

Like any NBA star who has above a 90, Delle Donne’s happy she has a 95.

Natasha Cloud certainly likes dancing and her TikToks. And the MVP also got in the fun too, as you can see below.

Aerial Powers is also playing video games to pass the time.

Delle Donne’s favorite NBA player is Bradley Beal

Before I see the comments go up in a firestorm between the “WallWay” and “Panda Pack” camps, EDD said her favorite NBA player “right now” is the Washington Wizards guard wearing number 3! I’m sure that she loves Bradley and John Wall equally though. I sure do.

Delle Donne loves Goofy among the Disney “OGs,” and her favorite Princess is Elsa from the “Frozen” movie series

Oh Gawrsh! Delle Donne had to pick two folks among her favorite Disney characters, but I get it. The Princesses are sort of their own thing and the animals, like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck are another.

And yes! Here’s proof of Delle Donne singing “Let It Go” from Frozen .

You never know if she takes her singing game up a notch to match Idina Menzel’s version.

Or maybe EDD will learn Dutch to get in a sing-off of “Laat Het Los” against ... some Belgian player whom I get criticized for writing about.

To our readers from the Netherlands, yes there is another Dutch language version of “Laat Het Los,” but we roll with the Belgian version here.

Seeing Delle Donne’s answers to questions on Disney characters lit a spark for me. So maybe I should answer them too.

If you’re wondering who my favorite Disney character is, it’s Mickey Mouse! He’s the OG of the OGs. He’s the face of the Disney cartoon franchise! And I love the most recent series of Mickey Mouse cartoons from 2013, which is a bit slapstick-y, like his old cartoons when Walt Disney voiced him!

And among the Disney Princesses, hmmmmm. no one in particular struck a chord with me. So I’m going with an “unofficial princess.” My favorite “honorary princess.” if you want to call her that, is Giselle from “Enchanted” back in 2007. I really liked this movie because it seemed to spoof past cartoon Disney Princess movies with the modern twist of New York City.

There’s a reason why Giselle isn’t a Disney Princess. Amy Adams would have been entitled to lifetime royalties if her character was used in their franchise, at least according to this link and others. I’m not sure if Adams minds that much, since she’s had a successful career in movies, winning two consecutive Golden Globes in 2014 and 2015 for “American Hustle” and “Big Eyes,” respectively.

Anyway, I TOTALLY digress.

Hope you enjoy your Thursdays everyone!
