“My Thoughts on Women’s Hoops”
Published by Kevin Durant in Blog on April 12th, 2010
What’s good everyone? We had a little bit of a let down last night against the Warriors. Tonight will be another big game because we have the same record as the Blazers and need a win against them to stay ahead in the seeding for the playoffs. Make sure you tune in and check us out tonight!
Well, the college basketball season is officially over, but I really haven’t talked much about women’s basketball. Since I was just watching the WNBA Draft the other day, let’s talk about the lady ballers.
First off, I’m a big fan of basketball no matter who’s playing – women, men, young kids. Being drafted into the NBA, I know that’s a big thing for anybody to be able to go into the profession they’ve always wanted to go to. So to see the smiles on everyone’s faces when they heard their names called during the WNBA Draft was something I enjoyed.
I’ve got a couple of friends who were drafted that I got to know over the years from playing basketball, too. Monica Wright, she went to UVA and we’re from the same area. Tina Charles went to the University of Connecticut and Jayne Appel from Stanford, we all played in the same McDonalds All American game. So it was cool to see them get drafted.
We were playing the Utah Jazz the night of the women’s championship game, but I did get to catch the National Semi-Finals. Man, those were some good games. Brittney Griner from Baylor is real good and a lot of fun to watch. But UConn had a better team and they prevailed. So it was something else to see them win two titles in a row and not lose a game in two years.
UConn is one of the top teams I’ve ever seen. A 78-game winning streak??? That’s impossible to do. Definitely one of the top 10 teams I’ve ever seen.
What did you all think? Let me know in the comments section.
