About Tayshana Murphy
ESPN.COM GRANTLAND.COM Writer Johnathan Abrams said it best, "Mention a court in New York City, West 4th, Rucker Park, Orchard Beach, they don't just know of Tayshana "Chicken" Murphy. They know her. She possessed that killer crossover and played "man strong," as Taylonn, her father, likes to say. Tayshana loved contact. "Babies," she called the girls who helplessly bounced off of her when she drove to the rim. She played taller than her 5-foot-7 and with a fierceness that contrasted against her gentle, hazel eyes."
