Hope all our mothers out there had a good day. The Storm does not have any mothers on the roster this year, but of course every player is a daughter, and Percy Allen of the Seattle Times interviewed Janell Burse’s mother Esther on raising Burse. Sue Bird and Swin Cash also spoke about their mothers.
SI.com also has a photo gallery featuring players’ best Mother’s Day gifts that includes several WNBA players, most notably Lauren Jackson – who picked the gift she gave her mum, Maree, this year.
Lastly, a year ago I interviewed Cash about her mother, Cynthia, and their special relationship. Then, Cash was in Seattle during the midst of training camp and missing her mom. Moving the start of camp back means many players are at home with their families, and Cash shared on Twitter that she spent the day with her mother and grandmother.
