LOL the "Plumbers." Her nickname is actually "Plummer," but yeah I guess it sounds the same. Can't wait to see the Stars fans waving around plungers and plums. Laughing

I Rolling Eyes at the introduction and said, "Plum's got to correct that shit." It's the University of Washington--Washington or "U-Dub" is acceptable. The school named Washington University is in St. Louis.

Also, Jewell is the Gold Mamba. Fun episode, though.

The 2017 San Antonio Stars are on track to set the WNBA record for worst won/loss in a season. The two teams who are down at the bottom of the won/loss list, have special circumstances related to their talent deficiency, but I don't think there is a special circumstance with regard to the Stars.

So the Stars now have:

PG: Jefferson/Plum/Colson
SG: McBride/Murphy
SF: Montgomery/Coffey/Brunner
PF: Harrison/Hamby
C: DeSouza/Alexander

What an ugly roster. Stars just got worse. That 0-34 record seems more likely now.

I don't think it was an awful trade. San Antonio got something for Currie, and it may create a chance for the young players to play through their mistakes. What's going to happen? Is San Antonio going to get worst?

I presume Grievance is still safe hiding somewhere in the depths of the locker room, since she's never been cut.

They have to keep her around; it's a union thing.

Free Coffey might be just the incentive needed to get more than 260 fans in the stands

The opposite side is that usually it means you get to play more. Coffey's had the worst of both worlds so far (and without looking quite as wildly out of her depth as Akhator has in her few minutes).

So Brunner wasn't ever meant to stay on the roster via the Currie trade.

I don't understand why you waste the roster spot you opened up by signing Holmes for the whole season, rather than using if for 7-day deals to see what surprises you might be able to find among players off the street. 31-year old journeywoman Sequoia Holmes isn't going to be a meaningful part of the Stars' future.

Isabelle Harrison Mended and Playing Well for San Antonio

http://womhoops.blogspot.com/2017/07/wnba-feature-former-tennessee-star.html

Quote:
Against the Fever, the affable 6 foot, 3 inch center ran the floor like a thoroughbred, jumped like a spry kangaroo for rebounds, deftly finished around the basket, and stepped into passing lanes like a thief. Her relentless activity gave the Fever fits and created mismatches throughout the game.

It's interesting watching this team. On a team like this I sometimes like to just watch one player and the dynamic around that player. It appears some of them are willing to play with Plum and some of them do whatever they can to sabotage her. By that, I mean things like not trying to come meet the ball on passes; not giving her any movement/help when she is trapped; not passing her the ball when she's wide open...lots of little things. I understand that rookies have to 'earn' their trust, but some of this stuff seems excessive. Mostly I see it from the other guards, whereas the posts for the most part seem willing to play with her.

Izzi is fun to watch - lots of effort and energy and decent results too.

The Mercury really missed the boat when they traded Harrison., She is just what the Stars need in a Post player. Sure hope she doesn't get injured again.

Had to give up something if they wanted to acquire Danielle Robinson.

She sound's like she's the most clueless wnba coach I've ever seen in my life.

I think she should be fired immediately. Who are their assistants? Promote one of them to interim head coach and starting headhunting for a new coach now. VJ, good player... VJ, pile of shit head coach.

I suspect that they would have hired someone else, but decided they didn't like the pool of candidates and are waiting for someone to get fired and pick them up next year.

Looking at the Stat sheet it would seem like VJ is finally making winning games more of a priority but I am totally baffled by her handling of de Souza. 8 minutes after 24 minutes and 14 points in the previous game. I got the impression from her responses in that podcast that it is all about defense, if a player misses an assignment they are pulled immediately. I don't know how she became an expert on overseas play. I can't remember her playing overseas with any of the top teams. I think maybe she gets her emphasis on defense from her days in NY and coach Adubato. He assumed the team would score enough points so the key to success was limiting the scoring of the other team.

They can be humiliated in front of their friends and family, but as long as they don't get cut overseas, everything's okay.

I kinda feel for her. You're a coach who lives by defense, and you're expected to build a team on has-been free agents and rookies and the desolate roster Hughes left her? Rookies hate defense, especially at the WNBA level. That's why coaches that emphasize defense don't love rookies: Agler, Reeve, maybe Laimbeer.

Speaking of Laimbeer, any chance he could switching back to SFO should the Liberty sustain disappointment?

wow. interesting. That felt pretty hostile...like 'I'm tired of being asked these questions. It's my way or the highway.' And she didn't actually answer the question of why not Plum-MoJeff-McBride.

I am starting to think VJ learned how to make friends and influence people from Adubato, how to coach from Coyle, and how to make player moves from Hughes.

These are not the particular lessons I would have taken from these particular people.
