Even Kobe Bryant stood up to cheer.
Phoenix Mercury veteran Diana Taurasi broke the WNBA’s all-time career scoring record on Sunday with this basket against the Los Angeles Sparks:
She broke the record set by Tina Thompson in 2010. The retired player recorded a message for Taurasi, telling her how proud she was of her and noting that if she had to build a franchise around a player it would be her. “It is my absolute pleasure to pass the torch onto you,” she said.
Taurasi needed 14 points going into Sunday night’s game to reach the record of 7488 points.
