Mount Rushmore

Last night on my twitter, I posed the question: who would be on your Mount Rushmore of women’s basketball?

I got a lot of replies, and I retweeted them all. A couple people surprised me by naming Candace Parker and Maya Moore. I then clarified the concept of Mount Rushmore: founders and pioneers. Parker and Moore are too new on the scene to be in that category.

I have three on my Mount Rushmore:

Cheryl Miller
Sheryl Swoopes
Lisa Leslie

I can’t decide if the last spot should go to Teresa Edwards or Lynette Woodard.

As for my coach’s Mount Rushmore, Pat Summitt is most obviously there. But after that, I honestly can’t decide.

This will take a while.
