Her parents both were natives of England before they moved Down Under; her mom as a young teen, and her father when he was an adult.They met in Australia, and Taylor said there was a definite English influence in her upbringing and that of her siblings."Even now when people meet me, they say my accent is a little different from other Australians," Taylor said, adding with a laugh, "I very rarely say, 'mate,' for example, which for most Australians is every second word."Taylor's parents introduced her to basketball at age 4.And, yes, even the media have experienced countless "nice Penny" moments.Such as when the Mercury had clinched their first WNBA Finals berth in 2007, and the celebratory music playing in their locker room was so loud reporters couldn't hear the quotes.I'm a huge fan of her."But the past few years also have presented Taylor with some physical challenges.
But she believes it's time to stop."It's my body telling me," Taylor said. I want to make them better, and never be holding them back in any way."I feel like I'm still contributing, and I love that I can still play, with this group especially. But I want to make the decision for myself, and the time just feels right."It's the exact answer you'd expect from a player who has always put team first, even though nobody thinks she's "holding back" the Mercury. But it's about the most Penny Taylor thing ever that she would opt to exit just a little bit early than too late."Penny is one of the nicest people I've ever met," said Indiana's Tamika Catchings, who also is retiring at season's end.
"But the competitive nature that we each have, I'll always remember that about her.
And from the international standpoint, her being a role model for players who come from Australia."Ah, yes: "nice." A very bland adjective, right?
It seems crazy in retrospect to think a player as good as Taylor went as late as the No.
11 pick, but that was a talent-rich draft, including another Aussie teen: No. Taylor was to become one of the league's elite; a case could be made that she deserved a spot on the league's top-20 players list voted on earlier this 20th anniversary season.
