Your memory must be failing you. It's not like you to deliberately paint an inaccurate picture. *sarcasm*

This kind of conversation brings me back to 7th grade.

Diggins is not wasting the month-long break in the WNBA schedule. Instead, she went to Asia to host an international tour with Nike basketball, the first female athlete to do so.

Lucky she's not wasting her time on the Olympics. If Nike basketball had their druthers, wouldn't they rather choose somebody who's actually been to China before, and has conquered it?


The article never said that Diggins was lucky she wasn't wasting her time on the Olympics. Here was said in it's full and proper context.


"Dallas Wings guard Skylar Diggins was a finalist for the United States' Olympic team but her recovery from ACL surgery kept her from participating in the Brazilian games this month.

Nike isn't just selling to the small subset of the general public that women's basketball fans represent.

No, I said that. It's a good thing she didn't go to the Olympics, otherwise she wouldn't have been anointed "the first female athlete to host an international tour with Nike basketball".

I just find it odd that Diggins is sorta being touted as the face of international basketball after purposely avoiding playing overseas her first two professional off seasons.

I cannot wait until Diggins leaves the league. Somebody gets their grind on (and she's not the only one), and she gets snark.

"PR placed" articles can be annoying, but at least her name gets the Wings mentioned, particularly doing downtime, and during a crap season thus far.

Agreed. Diggins gets so much hate from fans (and players) simply because she is popular. People act like she is writing these articles about herself. I wish she would ditch this blackhole they call a league, collect Chinese coins during the winter and work on other stuff during the summer.
