Lisa Leslie, Still Fighting for Recognition

The only way to fully appreciate the post game comments from Lisa Leslie as she reflects her career and next steps is to listen yourself.

Here's a few key quotes:

"The world needs to recognize that just because we're women and we may not have the ability to jump as high and do what men can do, none of us can. That's just the way we're made. Our chromosomes are different but with that said give us our opportunity and give us a place."

"I don't see anything about the WNBA. If you don't have NBATV and cable you missed it and that's not fair. So that's what I'm fighting for. That's my transition. I'm still fighting for women's basketball and for young girls and for my daughter to one day have a place in the media."
