Reactions: Congratulations pour in for Diana Taurasi

Stats are a pretty easy way to measure the impact a player has had on his or her league. Take Diana Taurasi, for example. You may have heard of her. She has now scored more points than anyone in the history of the WNBA, converting a record-breaking layup Sunday evening for Phoenix.

Another way to measure a player’s impact: watch the response from others as the milestones pile up. After Taurasi’s record became official, the congratulations started pouring in, from the WNBA, sports, politics, and everywhere in between.

Here’s a sampling of what those people with the blue check marks on their Twitter accounts had to say:
