They're just as bad as San Antonio as a team. The only reason Indiana has more wins than San Antonio is they have a veteran head coach. It's not that they have any better of a roster. Chicago has a much better roster than both Indiana and San Antonio but they only have 8 wins because of a rookie head coach. If the Sky kept Pokey Chatman as head coach, and with the roster they have now, I believe they'd have a couple more wins at this point than they do. But all in all, and all things considering, Chicago has done better than I thought they would by this time in the season. Phoenix is still the team I'm most surprised about. I didn't think they'd be as high up in the standings only bringing 2 players back from last years team and losing Dupree, Bonner and Taylor. And the players they added, Camille Little, Danielle Robinson, Leilani Mitchell and the others whom I don't even remember, I didn't think they'd be enough to compensate for what they lost. But they're doing ok. They're going to drop further in the standings while Griner is out, but once she's back, they'll be making a push for 2nd or 3rd place in the standings.

This is what stands out the most to me . No improvement in a course of 2 years is all i can think of.


Same starters. Can't remember who was there last year in place of Whitcomb and Swords.

Rebuilding sometimes means busting things up and starting with new players. Imo Clark needs to go for this team to improve and langhorne also is past her prime .

I believe Abby Bishop and Jenna O'Hea were on the team. I think Monica Wright was there, too.

I'm certainly glad the Storm are getting all this negative covfefe since it takes the spotlight off my 3 All Star team that is now worse than last season (and just as bad as the Storm now.)

The Storm has their franchise player(s).

The importance of elite players in basketball: The three teams at the bottom of the Changes list (thanks pilight) each lost an Olympian.

Los Angeles doesn't have any elite players by your definition. They won a championship last season. Maybe you can surmise that winning a championship once without elite players (through luck, bad reffing, what have you), but sustaining that kind of pinnacle of success is unlikely.

The Sparks are without the services of their Olympian, Ana Dabovic, and seem to be doing just fine, though I suppose some of that has to do with them brining back their only other Olympian in Sandrine Gruda. Smile

NY is switching it up.

The last two seasons they've had very impressive regular seasons from the start and then sputtered out. This year mediocre, slowly improving, look out playoffs, here we come for a deep run (maybe?).

I think this calls into question the Win Shares calculation. According to basketball ref. last season Catchings was worth 3.8 WS, while Angel was worth 3.1. So far, both teams 6 games worse, and in Atlanta's case they have a better supporting cast this season.

He didn't explicitly define "elite player", but I don't think he was implying that it was only players chosen by Geno Auriemma for the Olympic team.

Being an Olympian isn't the only definition -- but CP3 has been an Olympian and Nneka should be.

If we ignore my hopefully obvious exaggeration then yes, neither is fitting to be the leading player of a good team. I don't think you can win 20 games with either one as your best player.
