Candace Parker Never Stopped Wanting To Win

Candace Parker poses a certain sportswriting problem. The way she has been spoken about by her teammates, fans, and coaches this season can make the job uncomfortably easy. A homecoming story, these tidy little lines about veteran leadership and playoff experience, served up on a platter. It can all feel cheap and corny, especially if you tend to discount that kind of thing, if you’ve long suspected being “great in the locker room” is code for being bad at everything else.
