Skylar Diggins-Smith, like the other ladies in the WNBA, loves playing basketball. She and her league-mates, however, would also like something done when it comes to the WNBA’s scheduling.
Diggins-Smith put the WNBA on blast for unfavorable traveling conditions.
Following Tuesday’s loss to the Washington Mystics, the Mercury had to board a flight today to face the Indiana Fever later Wednesday evening.
Not only that , she called out the fact that they have to fly commercial with no security.
“Flying in the same day as the game will never sit well with me! Back to back away games should never be scheduled, considering we fly commercial (with no security),” Diggins-Smith wrote. “The W wants quality/high level basketball, but doesn’t (seem to) value quality of life for the players.”
Skylar Diggins-Smith is currently averaging 18.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.8 steals a game.
The Phoenix Mercury have been struggling without Brittney Griner, as they have been sitting under .500 all season long.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
