#18 Diana Taurasi
As one of the most accomplished American female athletes, Diana Taurasi deserves a special place in American sports lore. Known as the “White Mamba” for her scoring prowess and signature moves that evoke memories of NBA great Kobe Bryant, she holds the record for most points scored in WNBA history.
Taurasi has one of the best basketball resumes of all time, with three NBA titles, three NCAA championships, six Euroleague trophies, and countless individual honors. She tied the knot with her former teammate Penny Taylor in 2017, and former players now raise a son together.
