It's also a time for nervousness as each player hopes to leave with their own personal Cinderella story.
The announcements were made Thursday night in New York City. But it was a player that would not be here who will forever have her dream etched in the history of the New York Liberty.
As expected, Washington's record-setting senior point guard Kelsey Plum was drafted No. 1 overall Thursday afternoon in the WNBA draft. "Be who you are no matter the stakes that you're playing on, stay the course", said Staley. Plum carried herself well as if she has done this before. She also knows how to score the ball and averaged 19 ppg in her final season.
"I'm just really excited". "If San Antonio wants to keep me, great".
The pick used to draft Coates was acquired in a trade earlier this year with the Washington Mystics, who sent the pick and Kahleah Copper and Stefanie Dolson to the Sky in exchange for star forward Elena Delle Donne, who had indicated that she was unwilling to sign with the Sky as she approached restricted free agency.
Allen is the first Notre Dame player ever drafted by one of the league's original franchises.
The idea, Parry said, was to make the draft reflect the players' personalities more and the choice of the space was meant to give fans more of a chance to see the experience through videos and moments posted on Twitter, Snapchat and more. Since Chicago had taken SC center Alaina Coates at No. 2, Dallas went with Kentucky forward Evelyn Akhator at No. 3. Brionna Jones of Maryland went to CT with the eighth pick.
The Gamecocks, led by their lionhearted head coach Dawn Staley, appeared to be a team of destiny as they steamrolled the Bulldogs and hoisted the first National Championship trophy in school history.
"I'm definitely an intangible-type person", she said.
The Atlanta Dream drafted Syracuse guard Brittney Sykes at No. 7.
People are looking to move up and were listening, said Riley, who is overseeing her first draft as GM of the Stars.
The Sky chose Michigan State guard Tori Jankoska with its second first-rounder, ninth overall. Plum said she's unconcerned about the chatter, and for now, has already embraced San Antonio as her team.
It's the second straight year that the Stars have drafted a guard.
For me to go number two with my situation, Im really excited about that as well, Coates said. While I think Gray, Davis and Akhator will need some time to develop, they all have the natural abilities and instinct that are hard to teach. It won't be very easy to crack the Liberty's roster, but Allen's on-court savvy offensively and defensively could be really appealing for NY. Osahor is one of those players who could surprise people, but she'll have to make a team, which won't be easy.
"It shows that she's preparing WNBA athletes", Davis said.
