This is always an exciting time of year for me as the NBA Playoffs begin to wrap up. The reason, the WNBA season is starting.
The overlap of the seasons was pretty sweet when I began my WNBA career with the Utah Starzz as I was in the Delta Center to witness the push off, fade away, last second, buzzer beater shot by Michael Jordan against Byron Russell. The crowd was devestated.
Two years later I felt like I was Russell during my second season with the Cleveland Rockers when I took a charge on Cynthia Cooper of the Houston Comets. I was stationary for so long that the cement trucks had come and gone and plastered my shoes to the ground. However, that wasn't how the officials saw that call either. I will admit she was VERY good.
This time of year always gets me pumped. I am just glad I don't have to sit in the ice baths getting through those two a days.
