According to her Swin Cash’s post via theplayerstribune.com :
” We live many different lives throughout the course of the one we’re given.
I’ve had my own: a young girl in the Harrison Village projects of McKeesport, Pennsylvania. A TV personality. Recently, a wife.
The one I’m most known for — a professional basketball player — is coming to an end.
Basketball has given me the opportunities of many lifetimes.
It was truly my first love. It took my hand and pulled me beyond the pitfalls of my environment, and all over this country and the world — and then brought me back home again.
It showed me how I can touch people — people who may not know the game I love, but who know me because I play it. People whom I would never have met if I didn’t dribble a ball.”
She has definitely influenced a whole generation of girls, boys and Basketball fans. Thank you Swin for all that you have done for the game. We wish you success in your further efforts.
