PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phoenix Mercury get a lot of attention in the WNBA. With a roster that includes Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner, they have some of the biggest names in recent women’s basketball history. But they also have a player who has put together a career of remarkable consistency in former Temple star Candice Dupree.
Dupree is in her 8th season in the league, her fourth in Phoenix, after being drafted in the first round by Chicago back in 2006.
“Still haven’t met my major goal, which is to win a WNBA championship, but the last seven years have been amazing,” Dupree told KYW Newsradio recently. “I’d take this any day over a regular 9-to-5 (job). Been a lot of fun and hopefully I have a few years left in me.”
