The Mercury hasn’t had the best season so far as they have the second-worst record in the WNBA at 6-19. But that’s not to take away from what could be a special night for the legend and I would assume her teammates are going to do everything possible to feed her the basketball.

Taurasi was asked a question about what 10,000 points would mean to her and the game of basketball and her answer best exemplified his humility through it all.

This milestone will have a young generation worth of women’s basketball looking to try to break for years and years to come. Here’s a longer video of Taurasi talking about what this potential milestone could mean for her.
