The WNBA has well over 130 players in the league, so it's hard to remember every player's birthday. I was checking up on Twitter and saw that it's Ivory Latta's birthday today:

Today, she is 30. That calls for some celebrations. Here's her Instagram post:
But as one of the more vibrant personalities in the league, Latta's quote in her post however was even better is also something you MUST read:
AJust want to take the time out to thank GOD for letting me see another year and it has been a blessed year at that. Thanks to all my family/friends/fans/haters for all their love and support without you guys I wouldn't be where I am today. God has open so many doors for me sometimes it's overwhelming but I know one thing I will not take the gift he has given me for granted. I know I'm blessed and highly favored and also CUTE. He made me wait 30years for my hair to grow and I forgive you lord. Thanks everyone again I really appreciate it. It's time for GOD to show up and show out for my DIRTY 30. The TurnUp will be real in a week on somebodies island. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart im only getting started #ItsMyBday #ImFeelingTheLove #IStillLookTheSame #IfYouWannaHollaLeaveYour#Below #TheThirstIsReal #30AndSexy #IWasFatBackThen #GODMadeABigChangeWithMyHair #ThankYaJesus #30YearsLater #ThatBabyFroWasCute #StillHaveTheSameSmile #SooBlessed #ManICantBelieveIm30Yall #MyAgeDontMatchMyHeight #ILook15 #LoveMyFriendsAndFamily #LoveMyHatersYallMadIGotHairNah #OhYallGoneBeMadLaterImGetting18inchesNext #ICantWithMyOwnHashTags #SendMeGiftsToMyWorkPlaceLoL #OkImDone #HappyBirthdayToMe
I love her hashtags. And her hair quote. Speaking about those hashtags, here's her profile:
Note the highlighted areas.
I'll say Latta certainly has PWNED the hashtags. And as for #CrossoverQueen, that must have been a response to a post we made after one of her teammates made a notable move, and labeled her a #CrossoverQueen soon after. More on that in the next paragraph.
Happy birthday Ivory! And by the way, here's the play we liked from you the most this past season:
(Yup, on that top GIF, you can see Briann January for a sec thinking, "Oh man! I just got PWNED!")
