Shoulda been a Skylark

 

Looks like Skylar Diggins will have a new ride when she goes to Tulsa to join the Shock. The former Notre Dame star tweeted her thanks to sports agency Roc Nation, backed by rap superstar Jay-Z, along with photos of a new white Mercedes-Benz she said the agency surprised her with. “I got 99 problems but a BENZ ain’t one,” a tweet on Diggins’ account said, riffing off a Jay-Z hit. The All-America guard, who graduated this weekend, was chosen No. 3 overall in the WNBA draft by the Shock. She is the third athlete to sign with the agency started in part by Jay-Z, whose given name is Shawn Carter. New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano also recently switched representation to Roc Nation, which is partnered with Creative Artists Agency. – AP
