Cooper and Swoopes are regarded as the first faces to  be recognized by the WNBA However, it was Leslie who became the first face of the league for those who Backyard Basketball was geared towards and included me. Leslie was the very first WNBA athlete I had come across and helped me enter basketball for women.

My commitment to the sport slowly increased from there. I remember Diana Taurasi being featured on the front cover of Sports Illustrated alongside Emeka Okafor after their UConn Huskies won the national championship in both men's basketball and women's basketball in 2004. Then, I was a Sacramento Monarchs fan. I watched them play in the 2006 WNBA Finals against Detroit Shock. Since watching Parker take part in the 2007 national championship win by the Tennessee Lady Volunteers, I've been very interested in basketball for women. I began with the WNBA in 2012.

I began working at Swish Appeal in 2013 and continue to help increase the awareness of women's basketball by providing coverage. Lisa Leslie's appearance on the game on computer led children to keep the process of exposure.

Sports Illustrated's decision to not feature UConn both men and women on the cover, ESPN's coverage about the Monarchs, Shock, and Lady Vols and my going to college and the encouragement of coverage of women's sports all played a role in the development of the cycle. However, video games hold an unmatched power. If you take on the role of a particular character, you will become a enthusiast for them as they aid your team to win. It is evident that Parker's spot on the cover of NBA2K will motivate young kids and adults to become avid basketball fans.
