When Kobe Bryant talks people tend to listen whether they love him or hate him.
And when a basketball player of his caliber claims that a number of players from the WNBA could play right now in the NBA, it elicits quite the reaction.
"I think there are a couple of players who could play in the NBA right now, honestly," Bryant said. "Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Elena Delle Donne. There's a lot of great players out there, so they could certainly keep up with them."
Delle Donne is coming off a monster season with the Mystics. She secured her second MVP award in 2019 and won her first championship with Washington after beating the Connecticut Sun in five games.
