"As a professional athlete and coach, I've seen and experienced plenty of comebacks throughout my careermany of which can be attributed to powerful locker room pep talks," said Leslie. "Teaming up with Mucinex on the brand's Ultimate Comeback Pick-Me-Up campaign is a such a natural partnership that has allowed me to stretch my coaching pep-talks beyond my teammates on the court to reach people nationwide who are in need of a pick-me-up."

Running March 1 through March 26, consumers can send their friends and family a Mucinex pick-me-up video, personalized through AI, featuring Lisa Leslie by visiting here and submitting the recipient's first name and location.
