Diana Taurasi will go down, as arguably the greatest women’s basketball player to ever live. And fittingly with Kobe Bryant in the stands, Taurasi was able to add another record, a very hallowed one at that, to her impeccable resume’: WNBA’s all-time leading scorer.
Former record holder Tina Thompson had this to say in a statement:
"Congratulations to Diana on becoming the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer. I am excited that it is Diana and it is my absolute pleasure to pass the torch on to her. She and I have shared so many amazing moments throughout our basketball careers, whether it was gold medals, championships or all-star games. Diana is one of the best players to ever play the game and definitely one of my favorites. She has done amazing things and I am so grateful that I’ve been able to share many of those with her. I am really excited for Diana and I think she is going to blow that record out of the water.”
