A new article from C. L. Brown in the Louisville Courier-Journal interviews Angel McCoughtry.
McCoughtry recounts a humbling experience at the beginning:
But before she could deposit the ball through the net, Michelle Snow, a 6-foot-5 center in her fifth WNBA season, closed in from behind. Snow pinned the ball to the backboard and sent McCoughtry tumbling to the court.
While standing over the WNBA's No.1 draft pick, Snow screamed to the rafters before looking down at McCoughtry and uttering with disdain, "Rookie."
The truth is, as Angel puts it, "Everybody is just as athletic as you are, so you have to use a little bit more fundamentals." Hope you haven't forgotten those, Angel.
