Tamika Catchings’ story has been told many a time, but this story is a gem. Love this part:

Actually, looking back, she recognizes that it was the start of something else — the defiant, resolute, competitive woman who plays forward for the Indiana Fever.

Not that she advocates flinging your hearing aid into the local crop, but if there was a defining moment for the 32-year-old Catchings, it was that hot afternoon in Abilene.
Tamika decided she was going to be known for something other than looking and sounding different from the other kids.
