Mercury’s Diana Taurasi: ‘I still love to play too much’

Phoenix Mercury superstar Diana Taurasi will make her season debut, returning from injury, on Friday as the Mercury take on the New York Liberty.

Should Taurasi not play on Friday, the Mercury’s next game is Sunday when they take on Atlanta at home.

Taurasi, who is a four-time gold medalist, three-time WNBA champion, five-time scoring champ, 10-time all-WNBA first team, nine-time All-Star and 2009 MVP, has missed the entire season thus far while recovering from surgery to repair a bulging disc in her back that took place back in late April.

Taurasi, who has dealt with a number of back issues throughout both her college and WNBA career, admits that she hasn’t felt “this good in a while.”

During an extensive interview with ESPNW, Taurasi says that despite her injury and her storied career, she has a lot more basketball left in her.

“No, no, no, no. I got … no way. I still love to play too much” Taurasi said. “No, that wasn’t even in my mind frame.
