Do not call them “female basketball players.” These are basketball players, full stop. And though they have big shoes to fill...this team is considered the best one yet. “We have a ton of talent in the U.S.,” says Sue Bird. “We could field a second team.” Adds Elena Delle Donne: “We have players dropping three-pointers from half court. It’s an incredible group.” Bird is considered the best point guard ever, and Delle Donne has a 95 percent free-throw record, the highest in league history. Their one hurdle? With busy WNBA schedules for all 12 players, Team U.S.A. trains together for only about a week. Coach Geno Auriemma helps them gel quickly. “He gets the point across that it’s not about the best talent out there; it’s about elevating one another’s game,” says Delle Donne. “[So] we’re able to click—and shine.” For more on these incredible athletes, pick up the July issue of Glamour, on newsstands now.
