Skylar Diggins-Smith talks about the Bubble and Phoenix Mercury
According to San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich the bubble is “the safest place to be right now”, as he is referring to the Basketball bubble the NBA has created for the season to continue.
Over in Bradenton (Florida), where the WNBA have their own bubble, not everyone feels the same way. Without going into details, newly acquired Phoenix Mercury star guard, Skylar Diggins-Smith, said she was “conflicted about being here”, during her media Zoom call today.
When asked to elaborate on what she meant, she declined by simply saying, “No”.
Pressed by reporters for more information about the difficulties of being there and asked if her husband and child were there she said, “None of your business, I’m sorry”.
When the topic was about playing hoops, Diggins-Smith, who last played in 2018 (out on pregnancy leave) for the Dallas Wings, stated she has continued to play basketball, “except for a little bit during the quarantine. But it’s basketball.. It’s round and it’s still played the same way.”
When talking about team chemistry, she stated, “It was kind of seamless on the floor, so now we’re just trying together on the floor in the time we have (but) we’re not unique to that, I think all 12 teams are in a predicament…. but I’m liking where we are.”
Diggins-Smith was the biggest move the Mercury made this off-season. By bringing her in, to team up with All-stars Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi, hopes are high to return a WNBA title to Phoenix. She’s previously played with both on the U.S. National team.
