Do you seriously think she would ever say anything negative about the new coach, no matter who it was?


No, I wasn't expecting her to be negative. It was clear to me from the previous article she wasn't feeling Klop and wanted to go a different direction. I'm just pointing how effusive she was being. I have a feeling she had a lot of input into this hire.

I think it just shows that she's a good teammate, committed to the organization and trying to make things work for the best. I wouldn't read a lot more than that into it.

WNBA pine cause of Perth Lynx star Sami Whitcomb’s slow start

https://thewest.com.au/sport/basketball/wnba-pine-cause-of-perth-lynx-star-sami-whitcombs-slow-start-ng-b88639020z

Quote:
Perth Lynx co-captain Sami Whitcomb admits achieving her WNBA dream has had a negative impact on her form to start the season


Quote:
The 29-year-old has started the WNBL season slowly.

Her points-per-game average has fallen from 24 last year to only 14 in the first five games and Whitcomb said the lack of match practice in America had posed significant challenges.


Looking for an excuse, but not sure how legit it is. The level of play and practices is much higher in the WNBA. Is she saying she's out of shape? It's up to her to stay in shape outside the court. It kinda reminds me of Cambage blaming American food for her getting out of shape her rookie year. Food is food. Learn about which foods are healthy and adjust your habits.

Other low minute WNBA players, like Chong and AJones (and I'm sure there are many more), are doing well out of the overseas gate.

Quote:
“People think ‘oh, she’s been in the WNBA – she’s going to be amazing’. I’ve been sitting for a lot of it. We don’t train a lot in the WNBA because there’s more travel and more rest because people are older.


Oh oh... oh no she did-int. She's 29. Isn't that a little older than the average WNBA player? Throwing shade at Bird? Razz I consider the Storm young for the most part.

Quote:
“As someone who doesn’t play with the team as much, you don’t get as many reps in training.

“It’s been an adjustment and I’ve done a lot on my own to feel good again.”


Quote:
She said training hard had always been the key to her game.

“If I’m not in the gym every day, I feel like crap,” Whitcomb said.


Then get into the gym.

Quote:
“If I don’t train, I don’t feel confident. I need to touch the ball every day and get some shots up. It’s part of who I’ve always been. I’d love to be the player who could not touch the ball for a week and still feel good about myself.”


Just do it!

There's a state league here that runs during our winter/your summer that she plays in. She was set to participate in that again until the training camp invite came through.

22 points, 12 boards & 7 assists tonight for Sami. I think the last of those WNBA bench splinters are gone now Smile

(Non-Storm side note - I barely recognised Courtney Williams with all her hair gone Shocked )

They really don't practice all that much compared to overseas teams. The longer season length overseas means many leagues spread out more games and so can practice more in between. Some coaches also insist on more practices. The Storm had even stopped mandatory shootarounds on game days.

I suck at copying tweets, but Seattle has voted to approve $660M in funding to build new Seattle Arena. Arena should be finished by 2020. City is hoping to lure an NHL team to the city with it's new arena. Storm would also play at new Seattle Arena.

@ChrisDaniels5
BREAKING: @SeattleCouncil votes 7-1 to approve $660m #KeyArena MOU package with @OvgSeattle.

It clears the way for a NEW Arena at Seattle Center by 2020, and potential #NHL franchise.

More details to come on @KING5Seattle.#Seattle

In the story I saw, it said "Demolition will begin in the fall of 2018" -- so it looks like the Storm will need a new home for a couple of years. Is Hec Edmundson on the UW campus viable?

The Hec Edmundson is probably their best option. Still in Seattle and holds 10,000. Otherwise they'd probably be forced to play at the Tacoma Dome, which is about an hour south of Seattle.

It's a bit frustrating that the front office has been working on this and very much likes this plan (as opposed to the SODO one) but they haven't communicated at all with the fans who will be impacted.

Reading the brief, it sounds like we will get the 2018 season at the Key and the 2019 and 2020 seasons elsewhere. This would include the 2019 and 2020 Pac-12 tournaments. Hec-Ed would be the most obvious choice but its seating is much poorer than Key Arena so many of us courtside fans will be screwed. The entire area on the side by the teams is backless bench seating and is horribly uncomfortable. The only other facility that could possibly handle 8000+ is the Tacoma Dome (please god no). Showare Center could only handle 7000 or less.

Comcast Arena is barely big enough and it's in Everett. With so many people driving up from the south already it would be a terrible idea to make them drive further through that traffic zone.

This is an exciting day for the City of Seattle; a vibrant sports city with passionate fans. We are thrilled Mayor Durkan and the City Council are moving forward with a world-class arena at Seattle Center, the future home of our two-time WNBA Champions. We are grateful for our continued partnership with the City and look forward to working with the Oak View Group throughout this process.

The point is that your statement that the Tacoma dome is the "only other facility" - not whether or not you think it's a terrible idea.

Exactly how many people drive from the north and from the south?

Point taken, you are correct.

I know people who drive from Olympia, Lacey, Puyallup and Kent. Don't know of anyone who drives in from the north. The Stormcrazies facebook page also had a bunch of folks mentioning they drive in from the south.

I'd be really surprised if they went somewhere other than Hec Ed.

Seattle needs to definitely be giving Jordin Canada A look , lexie brown is great but Jordin Canada would be the biggest get at PG since sue bird IMO.

My main concern with her is height. She's a gnat on defense but is only 5'6". Pair her with Loyd at 5'8" and Alysha Clark at 5'11" and that is very undersized perimeter defense.

Would lexie Brown make much of a difference ? Not many Chelsea Gray's to choose from this year.

Loyd is only 5’8” Shocked I thought she was at least 5’10”

Ugh, she is. I was doing some comparisons on a spreadsheet and I had the Stars players in instead. Kelsey Plum is 5'8". I was putting in "McPlumerson" where Jefferson is 5'6" (like Canada), Plum/Loyd and McBride/Clark (both 5'11).

I have three basic questions
1. Have they already moved on from the Lexi Peterson era?
2. Why do you keep bringing up Lexie Brown? Is it a battle between her and Canada for top other guard?
3. Is guard their biggest priority? They could use upgrades at center, SF, and then maybe backup/future PG. A lot could show up at #5, especially if a prominent player declares early. I think there's a strong possibility of going with the best player available, and that may not be either Canada or Brown.

Oh, and whether or not Crystal Langhorne (or Swords) sticks around could factor into who they target in the draft.

There could be something nice showing up at #17, like maybe Goodwin, Atkins, etc...(Hughes might be partial to Big 12 players since he still does color for Big 12 games)... or even something better.

1. The peterson project was not a joy to watch , unless she has improved drastically this off-season they should look elsewhere as father time continues to stare birdy straight in the eye.

2. I bring up lexie brown because this draft is not stocked with efficient & formidable PG's . Lexie & Jordin seem to be the creme of the crop at that position And lexie was my front runner til i had a better view of the eye test . Jordin Canada W/ Jewell & Stewie could be a nice trio .

3. I do agree that it might not be there biggest priority , but it SHOULD. Losing Swords Or Langhorne vs not having a back up for bird seems to be secondary in a team aspect. Langhorne Or swords could be replaced via free agency , versus finding a a young good PG to mold via free agency . They could take a swing at a SF at #17 as you've mentioned possibly Ariel Atkins or Victoria Vivians come to mind around that time frame in the draft. Im just keeping the ideas floating to waste time as i wait for the season to tip off already Laughing

Kinda nitpicky. He's just throwing out potential names that might be available at the #5 slot in case the Storm want to draft a PG.

Seattle needs a center worst at the moment, but Lexie Brown would be really hard to pass up. PG and Center should be the top targets for Seattle, no question. Here are the prospects they should be looking at.

#5- Canada, L. Brown, Billings, Russell, McCowan*, K. Brown*
#17- Vadeeva*, Goodwin, Flahrety, Jensen, McCarty, Hillsman

These are great options , all i would agree Seattle should be considering seriously especially with there 1st round pick . Seattle getting 1 of 3 Russell / McCowan / K. Brown would be ideal . If both those 2 declare early this draft just became Iconic !

Kalani Brown is too young to come out early. DOB March 21, 1997.

(If Healthy) Jefferson and #13 for #5 and #17

Seattle gets it's heir apparent to Bird in Jefferson
Dan Hughes drafted Jefferson
Jefferson won 4 Championships in college with Seattle superstar B. Stewart
Jefferson/Loyd back-court could be strong for years

Seattle can draft a decent SF at #13 (Vivians, Atkins, S. Thomas) or if LA and Minny pass on Vadeeva give her a shot in Seattle
Seattle will have to resolve its center issue through free agency, I would look at Kizer. (If they keep #5 Russell or a possible McCowan would be your choices, I would risk that for Jefferson and #13).

Vegas and Laimbeer solve the too many short small guard situation
Can draft Wilson at #1 hope for an early entry so that Deshields or G. Williams falls to #5 or take Russell at #5 and see if Laimbeer can get some toughness out of her, or make a slight reach for Nared (or Nurse) who would be a nice fit at the 3 with McBride at the 2 and Wilson at the 4, or trade #5 in the future for a steady vet.
#17 will get you someone decent if you draft well (Atkins, Mavunga, S. Thomas, Scaife, Goodwyn, Hines-Allen, Greenwell).
