Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi became the first WNBA Player to reach 10,000 career points on Thursday, completing the milestone by scoring 42 points in a 91-71 home win vs. the Atlanta Dream.

Here’s the 41-year-old hoop legend during postgame discussing her basketball journey, which started in her driveway as a kid with no goals or plan.

Reporter: “When you look back on the overall journey to get to this point, is there something you would do differently?”

Taurasi: “No, I wouldn’t change a thing. Every moment led to another moment, to another moment, throughout this journey that started way before the WNBA, way before UConn. It started in my driveway, it really did. It was just innocent. It was naive. There was no goal. There was no plan. There was no speaking English. It was just a kid who liked to play basketball in her front yard, and everyone was welcome to come and play. Sometimes you forget that it’s supposed to be fun, and as the years have gone by, I have to keep reminding myself that when you do something you love; it’s not a job, it’s not work, it’s just your passion.”
