While so many of us are baking up a storm these days, Mystics' star Elena Delle Donne is taking cooking adventures to a new (and incredibly entertaining) level. 

Behold, the BakEDD series:

Delle Donne has taught followers how to cook everything from Jello Treats:

To cream cheese crescent rings:

And when she's not baking, she's doing her best to help demonstrate how to live without being able to go to the salon with lessons on how to curl your hair, do makeup and unfortunately a good demonstration of why it's a great idea to not dye your hair at home.

Delle Donne and the Mystics are awaiting the TBD start of the WNBA season, where they'll be defending their 2019 title.

Like most kids growing up during Michael Jordan's reign of dominance over the NBA, Elena Delle Donne, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson probably saw the legendary "Be Like Mike" Gatorade commercial.

The ad launched Jordan's unprecedented fame at the time and inspired countless young basketball players to strive to be the greatest in the world. And with The Last Dance documentary reminding the basketball world just how great Jordan was, Gatorade decided to re-launch the commercial with an added twist. 

This time around, Delle Donne, Tatum and Williamson each had a role to play. 

With Tatum and Williamson as two of the NBA's brightest young stars and Delle Donne, the reigning MVP and WNBA champion from 2019, Gatorade picked quite the cast of stars to recreate the classic commercial. 

Now, young basketball players today can experience the same feeling, players such as Delle Donne did when they first realized they wanted to be like Mike. Only this time, there are a few new faces they can look up to.

Mystics' Elena Delle Donne, Wizards Japanese Media each named finalists for Shorty Awards

Mystics' Elena Delle Donne, Wizards Japanese Media each named finalists for Shorty Awards

Outside of her exceptional play on the court, winning an MVP and WNBA title in 2019, Mystics superstar Elena Delle Donne could come home with a different kind of hardware this summer. 

Delle Donne's video highlighting her achievement joining basketball's elite 50-40-90 club, is a finalist for a Sports Shorty Award. The Shortys is an annual award show recognizing those produce real-time, short-form content across multiple social media platforms. 

The 50-40-90 club consists of players who've shot over 50% from the field, 40% from three and 90% from the free-throw line over the course of an entire season. Delle Donne shot 51.5% from the floor, 43% from three and 97.4% on her free throws in 2019 and became the first player in WNBA history to join the exclusive club.

Only eight NBA players have ever posted 50-40-90 shooting numbers, and Delle Donne's video rightfully equates her accomplishment to the men. 

It doesn't stop there for DC basketball's representation at the Shorty Awards. 

Wizards Japanese Media is also a finalist for a Sports Shorty following its first season on the NBA beat. After the Wizards drafted Japanese-born Rui Hachimura ninth overall in the 2019 NBA Draft, they also launched a website, twitter account and mobile app to capture the excitement of a brand new group of fans. 

Both Wizards Japanese Media and Delle Donne are among six finalists for the Sports Shorty category and the winners will be announced during a digital ceremony on May 3.
