Photographic Memories

WNBA.com's "Photographic Memory" asks players to look at a photo of themselves and talk about what it captures -- what was going through their mind at that moment and what the photo reveals about their style.

Kara Lawson
Sacramento Monarchs
"As a young player, everyone should aspire to be like that in terms of the dominance that she brings every year."
More...
Diana Taurasi
Phoenix Mercury
"I am equally comfortable going to my left or my right. I probably like going to my left a little bit more, actually."
More...
Tamecka Dixon
L.A. Sparks
"I think that's my staple, just try to get to the hole anyway I can... I'm going to get there."
More...
Sue Bird
Seattle Storm
"First Reaction? I look like a dork. Second reaction? I'm calling a play. It's called 'horns down'."
More...
DeLisha Milton-Jones
L.A. Sparks
"You know what this is? A battle of the ACL's at this point. Becky's right knee against my right knee."
More...
Yolanda Griffith
Sacramento Monarchs
"I just try and lead by example, hustling for the loose balls..."
More...
Deanna Nolan
Detroit Shock
"I take whatever's given to me. If there's a hole, I take that hole, no matter whose it is."
More...
Natalie Williams
Indiana Fever
"I think the East is tough and I think the East is a lot more physical in the post, so it's harder to score points."
More...
Lindsay Whalen
Connecticut Sun
"The fans know a lot about this game, and to be voted in by them means that they have a lot of respect for me and my game and my team."
More...
Nikki Teasley
L.A. Sparks
"When I look at any pictures of Lisa and myself, I just think of the sisterhood that we have. I've really grown closer to her in the two years that I've been here."
More...
Swin Cash
Detroit Shock
"Playing against my old teammates is a lot of fun because we can talk stuff and still go out afterwards and hang out and still joke about it."
More...
Dawn Staley
Charlotte Sting
"I'm like a CEO out there - responsible for everything."
More...
Nykesha Sales
Connecticut Sun
"Sometimes you go into these cities, you don't know anybody, you get bored and a little depressed and upset. But I'm right here at home."
More...
Chamique Holdsclaw
Washington Mystics
"Ok, Chamique, you have to ease into things, you can't just start here and try to be fast and be explosive." More...
Katie Smith
Minnesota Lynx
"I hopefully get the job done in whatever way it is, whether it's defense or offense, but I feel like I'm pretty consistent."
More...
Becky Hammon
New York Liberty
"I was just hoping that it wasn't serious and obviously there was some pain and stuff that went along with it, but I really don't remember." More...
Sheryl Swoopes
Houston Comets
"I think I was really focused and just trying to attack, trying to draw a foul, trying to score, whether we were winning or losing."
More...
Adrian Williams
Phoenix Mercury
"When I look at this picture I just think of me being aggressive and being able to take off some of the limits I've had in the past and just go and play my game." More...
Lisa Leslie
Los Angeles Sparks
"I think it's awesome to see myself hanging up there on the rim. It was a cool moment in history that I obviously won't forget."
More...
Swin Cash
Detroit Shock
"Coach has the same smile for everything. He's probably yelling at the person taking the picture, 'Hurry up, let's go, let's go.' He doesn't like smiling." More...
Lauren Jackson
Seattle Storm
"I think that the WNBA has the greatest players, without a doubt. It's a great league. I love it. Every game that we play here is tough, really tough." More...
Shannon Johnson
Connecticut Sun
"You can tell I'm a little tired. I don't even have a good defensive stance and I'm bending my back more than I'm bending my knees." More...
Cynthia Cooper
Houston Comets
"I'm bummed out that I can't play in the L.A. game. It's one of the games that I was looking forward to playing in when I came back." More...
Deanna Nolan
Detroit Shock
"But coming in to the new season, we knew our team was going to be real good. It was just a matter of us clicking together and making all that happen." More...
Yolanda Griffith
Sacramento Monarchs
"I think everybody's doing this kind of move right here when they play [Margo] Dydek, just trying to attack the basket." More...
Jennifer Azzi
San Antonio Silver Stars
"This may have been at the start of the game because the five of us will come out and talk for a second, just get on the same page before we go out and play." More...
