Former WNBA player Yelena Leuchanka is probably dreaming of the good ole’ days back with the Atlanta Dream or Charlotte Sting. In a recent game against Shanghai, Yelena was the victim of a bunch of dirty nonsense, including this stinger from the hooping O-Ren Ishii.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the reason why she looked like she was already sucker punched before the cheap shot is because she was – in the previous game! And the cherry on top was she didn’t even get a whistle to go with the black eye.
The WCBA did suspend the “girl” for the the cheap shot, but many believe it was only because of the media attention.
