About Tayshana MurphyESPN.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." Tayshana Dejenea Murphy was born on May 4, 1993 in Brooklyn, New York. She was the daughter of Tephanie Holston & Taylonn Murphy Sr. Tayshana had Four Siblings: Robert, Tanasia, Taylonn Jr. and Deana. Tayshana gave her life to Christ on March 16, 2007, when she became a member of Progressive Baptist Church. Tayshana's Full Biography

are returned in about 3 to 5 days.
