Tamika Catchings Biography

Tamika Catchings, Indiana’s “do-everything” forward, completed 16 seasons in the WNBA, stepping away from her Naismith and Women’s Basketball Hall-of-Fame-career following the 2016 season. Her naming as recipient of the very first ESPN Humanitarian Award and a 14-year run of community service by her Catch the Stars Foundation are testament to her work off the court, however – more impactful than her MVP career on the court.

Since her playing retirement, she served as General Manager for the Indiana Fever. She operates Tea’s Me Café and Tea’s Me Community Cafe near downtown Indianapolis and continues her service as an ambassador with the NBA and WNBA. She serves on a developmental committee with USA Basketball. She also serves as an SEC ESPN Women’s Basketball Analyst.

Catchings released an autobiographical story, "Catch A Star: Shining through Adversity to Become a Champion" sharing her story of overcoming hearing loss, separation from family, high expectations and the pain of debilitating physical injuries. She reached for the stars with hard work, perseverance, and her faith in God.

On the court, Catchings’ legacy is cemented as one of the greatest women ever to play the game. She retired as the league’s No. 2 scorer and rebounder of all-time, already its career leader in free throws and steals. In postseason play, nobody appeared in as many WNBA Playoff games as Catchings, or started as many. She retired as the WNBA postseason leader in points, rebounds, free throws, steals, double-doubles and minutes played.

The first man or woman in recorded basketball history to record a quintuple-double, Catchings’ leadership, tenacity and all-around skills led the Indiana Fever to becoming one of the WNBA’s elite franchises. The Fever reached the playoffs 13 times in Catchings’ 15 active seasons, including a WNBA-record run of 12-in-a-row from 2005-16. The Fever reached the conference finals eight times, including five straight seasons. The Fever won a WNBA championship in 2012 and came within one game of two more championships in five-game WNBA Finals appearances in 2009 and 2015. Catchings played in every playoff game in Fever history through the time of her retirement.

Catchings was the WNBA’s first player ever to spend an entire career of 16 or more seasons with the same franchise.
