Cynthia Cooper could play some ball. She won a state title in high school, 2 national championships in college and lead in the creation of the dynasty in the WNBA with the Houston Comets.
But it is her story or I can say journey through life that's so touching and motivating. I read her book, She Got Game: My Personal Odyssey, a few years back. It was so touching that I went to the book store and purchased a few dozen to pass out to players that I was coaching and mentoring. When you feel that you have nothing left, you need to read her story.
