Well, it was pretty much you played on the collegiate level. And then if you want it to pursue professional opportunities. You were going to have to go overseas. And it takes me back to like my high school yearbook. And I remember writing my book that I was going to play in the NBA. That was like, I just truly believe that there were if there were no professional opportunities that I was going to play in the NBA. Yes. Sure. Lotte's initial dream was to play in the NBA because the WNBA didn't exist yet. In fact, in nineteen seventy seven the New Orleans jazz did draft six foot three Lucy. Harris Stewart who just assumed it was a joke. Still the NBA did not come knocking for Charlotte. Yeah. And in the eighties. There had also been a number of failed attempts at establishing a women's pro league. So for Charlotte, the dream of pro ball still felt within reach just not in America where even today two thirds of WNBA players still have to play overseas during the off season to make ends meet. I was shocked to see that. There was so much talent overseas and just thinking to myself, we have all of this talent here in the states. But yet we have to travel thousands of miles to the splayed that talent Charlotte was recruited by an Italian team. And she was grateful for the chance to keep playing.

In the US. The WNBA was born and it didn't take long for Charlotte to be drafted. She played from nineteen ninety nine to two thousand six but listen once there was a professional women's league the pressure was on to prove they had game. So what could possibly prove that the dunk, of course, and in nineteen Ninety-seven during the WNBA's inaugural season Lisa, Leslie, attempted to jam it. And she missed. Yeah.
