BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Former LSU women’s basketball star made a comment on Twitter that caught the attention of other professional players.
According to ESPN, guard Alexis Morris was recently drafted to the Connecticut Sun in the 2023 WNBA Draft. Following the selection, Morris posted to Twitter that she was waived by the Suns.
After the waiver, Morris took to Twitter suggesting that the veterans should make room for the incoming rookies on the team. She said in multiple tweets, “If we can’t make roster spots for rookies, cut the vets,” “The vets gotta know when to cut the net, and pass the torch bro,” and “If you knocking at 35, hang it up and I mean WIRED HANGER ‘Hang it up’.”
Morris has since deleted the tweets.
This reaction led other WNBA players to voice their opinions.
Eight-year veteran guard, Sydney Colson responded in tweets of her own saying, “The interesting part is that several vets (who were still capable players) didn’t make rosters years ago bc of cap space and it was cheaper to keep rookies. As someone who’s been cut several, and I mean SEVERAL, times…it’s tough & not a great feeling, but it doesn’t mean it has to be the end of your career. Grind, have a chip on your shoulder, and work to get back.”
