NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Katie Smith got a walking cane from her New York Liberty teammates last week as a birthday present. She's still many years away from needing it.
The oldest player in the WNBA, the 39-year-old veteran continues to put up solid numbers and help the Liberty win basketball games. She also reached a personal milestone, moving into second on the WNBA's career scoring list Friday night, passing Lisa Leslie.
"It's pretty cool. I tell most people those type of records are about consistency," Smith said. "That's what I'm proud of. You've done a good job and had a lot of productive years, not just a one-hit wonder."
