MCCRAY'S JUMP TO WNBA ISN'T GOING OVER TOO WELL IN COLUMBUS
Published September 18, 1997
The ABL Quest's Valerie Still, on former teammate Nikki McCray's signing with the WNBA: "What is the WNBA going to do, market Nikki McCray as the MVP of the ABL when they've never acknowledged the existence of the ABL? I'm not against the WNBA if they truly are for women's basketball. But so far, everything at the WNBA is, 'I got the money, I got the power, so I'm doing it the way I want to, and you just have to be satisfied'" (USA TODAY, 9/18). In Columbus, columnist Bob Hunter, on McCray: "It's a short trip from grateful to greedy. ... By this summer, her perspective had changed. She wanted three times more money, the right of first refusal on league endorsement deals and enough exposure to make her face as familiar as Michael Jordan's. ... [S]weet and appreciative Nikki turned into the reincarnation of Alonzo Mourning" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 9/18).
