Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi Have Hilarious Exchange Mid-Game

When it comes to basketball goats and WNBA greatness, look no further than Mercury’s Diana Taurasi and Storm’s Sue Bird. Between the two of them, they have a combined seven WNBA titles, 22 All-Star selections, the league’s all-time assists leader and the WNBA’s all-time scoring leader.

However, when Bird and Taurasi take the floor for their respective teams, like they did on Saturday in an early season matchup, it is all business.

With the 4:37 remaining in the fourth quarter of a tightly-contested game between Phoenix and Seattle, Bird was guarding Taurasi when the two were locked in on a jump ball scenario. Moments after Bird made her case that it should not have been a jump ball situation, the two briefly went back-and-forth in debate about whose arm was entangled between each other in efforts to get possession on the play.
