Minnesota Lynx’s Star Maya Moore Is Taking A Break From Basketball

There are different ways to measure success.

Minnesota Lynx’s star Maya Moore just announced that she will not be playing in the WNBA this year.

Moore wrote a heartfelt letter on The Players Tribune explaining that she will use this break to focus on her family as well as some ministry work.

Here’s an excerpt from her letter :

My focus in 2019 will not be on professional basketball but will instead be on the people in my family, as well as on investing my time in some ministry dreams that have been stirring in my heart for many years.

I will certainly miss the day-to-day relationships with my teammates and basketball family this season, but my no for the 2019 pro season allows me to say yes to my family and faith family like I never have before.

You can read the full letter here, but Moore’s impact on the game can’t be measured. The former WNBA champ, WNBA MVP, and Olympian has earned a much need break.
