Why DeLisha Milton-Jones’ hall of fame career almost never happened

DeLisha Milton-Jones stood on the Tennessee Theatre stage, beaming from ear to ear as she gave her speech at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame ceremony. 

The only time the class of 2022 inductee broke her smile was when she took a moment to thank the WBHOF committee for voting her into the hall. 

“You will never know how healing it is to stand on this stage to receive this honor,” Milton-Jones said in her speech, pausing as she got choked up. “Where many people have overlooked or under-appreciated my talents, you came along and you spoke for my career in a profound way. Thank you for recognizing my contributions and saying my name.”
