Diana Taurasi Rumors
Kyle Goon: Diana Taurasi, the White Mamba, with a sizzling moment of levity while talking about Gigi: I mean who has a turnaround fade-away jumper at 11? LeBron just barely got one today. (Referencing LeBron’s shoot against Boston yesterday.)
Phoenix Mercury G Diana Taurasi weighed in on comments made by Marcus Morris of the Knicks after Wednesday night’s game, when he said Jae Crowder had “female tendencies” (among other insensitive remarks about women) before apologizing. “It was disappointing coming from Marcus,” Taurasi told SNY’s Joe Kraus on Thursday. “I know him, he spent time in Phoenix with the Suns. I’ve had interaction with him. He’s a good guy. To go off the cuff and say stuff like that — he must have been emotional, after (the game). I know it’s intense, but it is what it is now. Words matter and what you say matters. It’s just disappointing coming from him in this stage of his career. You gotta watch it, you gotta be sensitive for what you say. At the end of the day, you’re responsible for what you say. It’s all on his shoulders now.”
Former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant said he believes that there are three WNBA players who could play in the NBA right now. “I think there are a couple of players who could play in the NBA right now, honestly,” Bryant told CNN when asked whether there might be a day when his daughter could play in the same league in which he was a five-time champion and 18-time All-Star selection during his 20 seasons with the Lakers. “There’s a lot of players with a lot of skill that could do it. “Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Elena Delle Donne. There’s a lot of great players out there, so they could certainly keep up with them.”
Bryant went on to name three WNBA ( Women’s National Basketball Association) stars who he believes could make the jump into the men’s league. “Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Elena Della Donne. There’s a lot of great players out there so they could certainly keep up with them,” he said.
Robin Lopez: In my 1st offseason in PHX I was in the weight room. Diana Taurasi (who is awesome) was there, as were a box of candy bars. Me: “Oh man you guys get Snickers??” Diana: “Yeah, we get all the good stuff 🙄” She was probably way nicer bout it than she should’ve been #WNBAPlayoffs
