COOOOOOP!!!!!!! Cynthia Cooper Joins the Naismith Hall of Fame

I've argued she's the Greatest of All Time. 

If you disagree, you certainly feel she is one of the top players ever. 

Bottom line: Cynthia Cooper has done it all .... 4 Time WNBA Champion, international star, NCAA star, Olympic gold medalist, Women's Basketball Hall of Famer, and now, today, member of the Naismith Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA.

How can you begin to talk about such a storied career?  What can be said that hasn't been said?  Well, here at Swish Appeal, we decided not much.  So we have decided to let the pictures and sounds tell the story of Coop's legacy.

We hope you enjoy it!
