WNBA Allstar Weekend (or Day) is upon us and waiting anxiously for announcement of top 15 players of the first 15 years which announcement to be made at halftime, but setting up this post so i can just hit publish when it's announced.
Year 15 of the WNBA, Tina Thompson was asked,
"How have you survived 15 years in the WNBA? She responded, "Winning always helps. Enjoying playing the game having a lot of fun."Still with a sense of humor and I believe lots of game left, I think Tina Thompson is pacing herself, saving herself for the playoffs..., yeah, the Olympics. I bet she was there because she is going to be in the top 15! (For your information only, if you see the footage when Tina Thompson breaks the scoring record, we can be seen in the stands: row 7, seats 3 and 4.)
"What kind of impresion did Cynthia Cooper make on you?"
"Instant. The joke in our locker room was that she had played professional basketball longer than I had been in the gym."
Tamika Catchings, Maya Moore, etc., I have seen, but today being introduced to the 6'8" player from Australia: Elizabeth Cambage. Rookie from Australia --WOW! Laughing and having fun.
The top 15 players of all-time are:
- Becky Hammond;
- Dianna Taurasi
- Cynthia Cooper;
- Lisa Leslie;
- Tina Thompson;
- Dawn Staley;
- Ticha Pinichiero;
- Cappie Poindexter
- Lauren Jackson;
- ...can't remember, but should have included Ruthie Bolton somewhere
Congratulations to the east and the top 15! Have a great weekend, everyone.
