Diana Taurasi is a future Hall of Famer, and on Sunday the Phoenix Mercury guard became the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer.
Taurasi, 35, is a 13-year veteran and obviously one of the best players women’s basketball has ever seen. She’s a 3-time WNBA champion and 2-time WNBA Finals MVP, winning the individual MVP award in 2009.
Her layup at the end of the second quarter against the Los Angeles Sparks pushed her past former Houston Comets star Tina Thompson. Thompson’s old record stood at 7,488 points.
Here’s what the play looked like on the floor.
Congratulations to Taurasi and fans in Phoenix.
