Cindy Brown's head hit the windshield and snapped down into the steering wheel. Her thoughts screamed inside her brain. "Oh my God, there goes my contract!" Her contract. She had played basketball for five months in Japan and, with bonuses, earned $125,000. Not bad for a 25-year-old who was three years out of college. She had been warned. A coach at Long Beach State told her to insure her body because it was her living. But she was in her best shape ever.
