There's a good article on Diana Taurasi (click to read) in the NYTimes, that shows the life of one of the greatest players to ever play point guard, men or women. The article leaves you with a mixture of  inspiration and sadness... inspired that a woman can make $1.5m to play basketball, sad because she has to do it in Russia. I can say that I've never had a chance to see one of her games in Russia and that's a travesty. We get small glimpses of these women when they play in the WNBA for the Summer, but we are robbed of their prime, in what should be a real basketball season. Maybe someday... someday it will be different in the USA.
