Commentary: Thompson exiting WNBA with plenty left

In the last week of the last regular season of her remarkable 17-year WNBA career, and Tina Thompson still won’t break character. She won’t stop being the great blue-collar superstar of her sport. She won’t relent, even as she’s celebrated, until that last practice free throw falls perfectly through the net.

You’d figure that such little things wouldn’t matter at the end, that there would be some level of senioritis for Thompson, who will retire at season’s end. But she wouldn’t short-change the game like that. She wouldn’t short-change herself. So in her final days, Thompson goes about business as if her career will never end, and if you’ve seen her stellar play in leading the Storm to the playoffs this season, you would say her career shouldn’t be ending.
