    Not ashamed to admit it. Sat there for 60 minutes with tears in my eyes.
    Fantastic film, great story.
    Greatest women’s basketball player of all time, The GOAT, Cheryl Miller
    Cynthia Cooper, at 35 years old, 4 straight WNBA MVP
    One of the greatest teams inthe history of team sports.

    Anyone on this board who doesn’t make a point of watching it in the next week, you’re dead to me

    What happened to our women's basketball program on that note?

    Which one are you saying is the greatest, Cooper or Miller?

    Personally I don't think it's either. I would put Cooper ahead of Miller but even before her I would put Lisa Leslie and Diana Taurasi.....maybe even Candace Parker.

    Cheryl Miller. Not even close.
    There was women’s basketball before Cheryl Miller and there was women’s basketball after Cheryl Miller. We'll never know how great she could have been. All I know is Cynthia Cooper thinks Cheryl was the greatest. As does Candace Parker. So did Pat Summit and so does Geno Aureama.

    Cheryl is the only one who did, and could hang with dudes.

    There aren't many players who would claim themselves as the best ever, even fewer among women players.

    There is no doubt she changed the game but I still don't consider her the greatest ever.

    "Auriemma said his favorite basketball venue was Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke, that Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi and Cheryl Miller were the greatest players he'd ever seen."

    Plus I think you are selling Ann Meyers very short. She truly was the 1st player to change the women's game.

    Annie was great. She was no Cheryl Miller. She could never have run with her

    I wish I could find on the interwebs the TV schedule for this episode. If I could, I would record/watch it.

    Nevermind. I was able to watch it on Amazon Prime.

    I agree with the OP. Outstanding documentary.
