WNBA Champion Lynx Welcome Back Motherly Leader

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx showed potential for years, with plenty of high draft picks for a success-starved franchise to build around. Pieces were always missing in the end.

Taj McWilliams-Franklin led this bonding process like only a mother could.

The 41-year-old, 6-foot-2 center — who has three daughters of her own — has returned for another year with the Lynx, and her teammates couldn’t be happier about it.
