Tina Charles is a former WNBA MVP and the Liberty’s unquestioned star. But she knows exactly what she’d be doing if she didn’t pursue a career on the hardwood.

“If I wasn’t a basketball player, I’d be doing non-profit work,” Charles said Thursday during a practice at the team’s training facility in Greenburgh, N.Y.

Charles has her own foundation, Hopey’s Heart, which helps raise awareness for sudden cardiac arrest. She said she has been donating her entire salary to the foundation for the last two seasons.
