Individual accolades and notoriety matters not to Taurasi. Winning does.
Like a light switch, when that first whistle blows, the modest, kind-hearted kid from Chino, CA becomes the “White Mamba” (a label appropriately given to her by the “Black Mamba” himself, Kobe Bryant). But unlike Dr. Jekyll’s intrinsic Mr. Hyde, Taurasi’s transformational potion is the game of basketball itself.
That, in essence, defines Diana Taurasi, regardless of what you call her (the White Mamba, DT, Dee, G.O.A.T., etc.). She’s a dichotomy that exists in two personalities, expresses herself as two characters.
