BASKETBALL SWEETHEART SKYLAR DIGGINS STUNS IN PAGES OF ESSENCE MAGAZINE...BOYFRIEND SENDS PUBLIC MESSAGE TO DRAKE

The grind never stops. WNBA darling Skylar Diggins has a promising model career to explore in the off-season if she is looking for a downtime hustle.  The statuesque Tulsa Shock guard graced the pages of Essence magazine showing off her all-star body in a variety of beautiful swimsuits that were perfect colors for the summer. This is not the first time the young athlete has been a feature in a major magazine. Sklyar put her sculpted physique on display in the pages of Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition back in February 2014.

See below for the full layout of pictures from the shoot.

All these magazine features have garnered Skylar the affection of many male fans, specifically rapper Drake. By examining various Instagram posts it seems that Drizzy has become quite infatuated with the 5' 9" beauty, entitling his posts of her as "Amen" on more than one occasion. Unfortunately for Drake, Skylar is in a committed relationship with fellow college baller Daniel Smith and he is making that point very clear to the OVO rapper. Daniel recently posted a snapshot of Skylar and him cuddled up and tagged Drake's Instagram handle to send a clear message. To Daniel, Message received. Signed, Drake.
