Maya Moore didn’t have to make a long journey to be deemed #1. In Bristol, CT, Moore was the overall pick. No surprise there.
The WNBA draft took place at ESPN headquarters for the first time ever. It was here that the Minnesota Lynx drafted Moore and #4 pick Amber Harris (Xavier)
Teammtes Kelly Faris, Caroline Doty, and Tiffany Hayes were there to support her, as well as her mother and sister.
She’s been busy since the draft, chatting live on ESPN.com, and talking with hosts Mike and Mike this morning. Now she heads off to Minny (as her newly-established twitter reads) to check out her future.
I’m not quite sure any of us are ready for her time as a husky to be part of the past…
