Candace Parker made her WNBA debut on Saturday afternoon and lived up to her top billing with 34 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists and road victory in Phoenix.
The Heat Index was going to hash out what media outlets covered the game (L.A. Times, Arizona Republic, etc) and crack wise about the articles. But then I read something about Candace Parker handing out samples of chicken biscuits in South Central.
Give me chicken biscuits or give me death
prefereably by chicken biscuit.
From The New York Times.
A team appearance Thursday at a fast-food restaurant in South Central Los Angeles drew only a few fans. Paul DeGuzman of Redondo Beach, wearing a Lakers jersey, asked Parker to sign a ball. "She's awesome," he said. "She's going to be like LeBron James coming into the women's game."
In the parking lot, Parker politely offered samples of chicken biscuits to people who did not recognize her. If she had been in Knoxville, she said, "it would be crazy."
