Most Successful Woman Basketballers of the World
When we talk about the women basketball in the world, Diana Taurasi is one of the leading figures who was one of the legend players of the basketball history. Diana Taurasi, who came to the world on June 11, 1982 in the city of Chino of the state of California in the west coast of the USA, chose the Los Angeles Lakers’ legendary player Magic Johnson as a role model to her. In early years, Diana started her career at Huskies as a college team.
Diana’s father, Mario Taurasi, was a footballer in professional leagues in Italy, where he lived. And Auriemma knew well where Taurasi was convinced. The coach, who had been serving Diana’s father to the kitchen of Italy, was also finishing his transfer to Diana Taurasi in Connecticut.
Diana Taurasi, the first Connecticut player to exceed 2000 points, 600 rebounds and 600 points in the NCAA, entered the WNBA selection in 2004, just as NCAA did before the race. With Conneticut Huskies, it was clear that Taurasi, who had three championships in top three and knew how to play under pressure, was chosen from a number. Despite being unable to enter the playoffs for the third time in a row, Diana Taurasi, who turned into an assault weapon under the direction of coach Paul Westhead, completed the 2006 season with an average of 25.3 points per game.
Diana Taurasi also won the WNBA championship in 2007 and 2009 with Phoenix Mercury. Taurasi, whose career is full of outstanding achievements, has also won MVP in the most watched final series of the WNBA history (2009). The star player was shown among the best players of all time in the WNBA organization.
