Is Diana Taurasi the ‘LeBron James’ of the WNBA/women’s basketball? It’s hard to say that another version of LBJ exists in another sport (maybe Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals, although Cole Hamels might not think so), but Diana Taurasi was poised to change the WNBA and carry the torch with her legacy as a winner in UConn and has accomplished all that she can thus far, winning a WNBA Title and Finals MVP as well as earning a league MVP and a consistent flow of yearly accolades. Taurasi, however, has been doing her best LeBron impression on-court as her Player Exclusives of LeBrons have been one of the more hard-to-find collectibles, even for the most hardcore of LeBron hoarders. Her latest LeBron PE comes in Team USA colors, as she and her fellow American femme-ballers are touring around and playing exhibition games (USAB just dismantled China by the score of 100-62).

To catch up with Taurasi, James has to win one more Olympic gold and two more rings than he has now. May flopping help him.
