The first WNBA player to appear on the cover of an NBA 2K game, Parker was featured on the cover of the WNBA 25th Anniversary Special Edition, released on September 10, 2021. Parker was also the 1st WNBA player to sign with 2K last year and brought the WNBA onto the platform for the first time.

Parker was recently featured in Disney+’s docuseries, Becoming, produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter. She has always had a love for creating content with plans to launch her own production company in the near feature.

Currently, Parker has endorsement deals with Adidas, NBA 2K, Band-Aid and JBL Audio and has previously worked with brands such as Gatorade, Budweiser and more. In 2019, Parker closed a multi-year deal to serve as an analyst and commentator for the NBA on TNT, NBA TV and NCAA Tournament coverage and is seen as a rising star on the broadcast world. Most recently, Parker and her 11-year-old daughter became co-owners of the Angel City FC National Women's Soccer League expansion team that is expected to begin play in 2022.

As a mother and a Black woman, Parker has developed into a bold, insightful and inspiring thought leader who is passionate about the importance of women’s rights, voters’ rights and Black Lives Matter. In September of 2020, Parker was the first women to join the Social Change Fund, the mission of which is to invest in and support organizations that are working to liberate Black people and advocate for indigenous people and communities of color through the lens of policy solutions, community representation and narrative change.
