And while most are quite talented on the court, only a few of these female ballers truly garner similar respect in beauty salons.Some exude voluptuous toughness, others delicate cuteness. Let's take a look at the hottest WNBA players currently prancing about the hardwood who naturally attract every nearby camera.Other active players selected include Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks, New York's Swin Cash, Seattle's Sue Bird, Indiana's Tamika Catchings, Phoenix's Diana Taurasi and Chicago's Cappie Pondexter.The former players selected were Cynthia Cooper, Yolanda Griffith, Becky Hammon, Lauren Jackson, Lisa Leslie, Deanna Nolan, Ticha Penicheiro, Kate Smith, Sheryl Swoopes, Tina Thompson and Teresa Weatherspoon.As her folks are likewise inspired by b-ball, they urge her to play the b-ball.Along these lines, they went along with her in the b-ball preparing focus at 4 years old.The Swin you see now — the one you’ve seen the last eight to 10 years — is not the player you saw in college. Sure, players add things to their repertoire and get better. She slowly moved her game away from the basket while still keeping her identity as a killer post player intact. At UConn, she was a power forward at six-foot-one, but I made her a small forward. Sometimes, great players don’t make it back to the level they once were. I can’t imagine that injury didn’t change Swin just a little bit.
You quickly understand who she is, what she came from and what’s important to her. Everyone knows how hard of a worker she is — and she is, in everything she does.
And with visions of attending law school after the pros, we respect her brilliance. But the lanky former second-round pick was recently waived by the Connecticut Sun.
(the Opals) when she was only 16, it was clear Lauren Jackson was something special.
And the Seattle Storm clearly agreed, eventually choosing the 6'5" paint presence with the first pick of the 2001 draft.
It's a gorgeous summer day in Seattle, with the afternoon sun shining on Sue Bird as she sips organic coffee outside a shop in her Queen Anne neighborhood.
