Who is Liz Cambage dating? Basketball player calls out Connecticut Sun coach Curt Miller for body-shaming her
Australian basketball player Liz Cambage took to social media to hit back at Curt Miller who body-shamed her during a game. Everyone is waking up to her globally after her powerful rebuking of the Connecticut Sun coach who tried to appeal that the referees call a foul against her by saying, "Come on, she 300 pounds" in reference to her. Cambage is listed at 6 foot 8 inches and 216 pounds on the Las Vegas Aces roster. Taking to her Instagram on May 23, the player said, "If there is one thing about me, it’s that I will never let a man disrespect me,” while also sharing that she weighs 235 pounds as opposed to Miller's claims.
Cambage, a WNBA All-Star playing for the Las Vegas Aces, has invited praise from all quarters with the way she addressed the situation. Clearly, not the one to be belittled, the player is being praised for another mention she made during the video. She said playful trash talking between players was bearable but Miller's comment was more than that. "But for a coach for another team to be yelling, like, protected abuse," she said, "because we can't do nothing back. It's just crazy to me." Cambage became one of the most searched people on Google with 100,000+ searches after the incident. Read on to know more about the basketball player's personal life.

Who is Liz Cambage dating?
In October last year, Cambage, who is also a model, opened up about her a part of her life that she felt a lot of pressure about. Cambage did a shoot and an interview with Playboy magazine during which she revealed, "I’ve never embraced my sexuality in public. Me doing Playboy is me celebrating my sexuality like, “Yeah, I am a straight six-foot-eight woman who likes to have sex.” I’m a human; it’s what we do. As a female athlete, I feel like I’m not allowed to be sexy and I’m not allowed to be that person. All society wants from me is to sit down, shut up, go to training and play my sport."
Cambage also revealed she spent a lot of years being questioned about her sexual orientation. "Am I straight? Am I bi? Is there something wrong with me that I’m not attracted to girls?" she said. Cambage revealed that she is straight but everyone was "expecting me to be gay." She further revealed, "I remember when I shaved half my head at 18 or 19 and my mom sat me down. She thought that was me coming out. I was like, 'No, I just look good with a shaved head.'"
Cambage also spoke about her dating life and added that while she knew what she wants in a relationship, she's still single and was focusing on herself. "I’m focused on being the best I can be. Having someone else in my life to worry about when I’m heading into what could be the biggest year of my life with the Olympics and WNBA next year and playing back in Australia, I honestly don’t have time for it. I’m willing and I’m open and I’m ready for it. But it will happen when it happens." In the past, she has dated Australian Football League player Alex Lee on and off.
