    What a year for Jessica Breland. But neither a spot in the starting lineup, better statistics, nor an all-star nod will be at the top of the list for the best and biggest moment of the year for the Chciago Sky forward, who was named a reserve for Saturday's WNBA all-star game. That will come in November, when pending good news from her doctor, she will officially be considered cancer-free, five years in remission from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system that she discovered in 2009, prior to her senior season at the University of North Carolina.

  • Delle Donne, Catchings fight illness, injury Jun 27, 2014 7:09 PM
    Besides championships, fame and fortune, there’s probably nothing more important to elite athletes than their “own terms.” In other words, they want to dictate where they go, how long they stay, and when they finally say goodbye for good. No one wants to be pushed around, or worse yet, pushed out by someone or something else. Just ask Sky forward Elena Delle Donne, who’s got to be wondering if she will ultimately get to navigate her WNBA career on her terms, or if her Lyme Disease and its nasty flare-ups will have the final say. Meanwhile, Indiana Fever forward and former Chicago suburbanite Tamika Catchings has been fighting her own debilitating demon this season, which has led to some understandable questions about her “terms.”
