Well, this finally settles some things. Prepare to adjust mock drafts accordingly.

Nice touch on the "pull quote" there.

More likely that Putin prohibits the naming of any brand of processed cheese to any thing even resembling Vadeeva's name.

Putin my not deter Vadeeva but Taurasi's club team did pay Diana to not play in the W one year I could see both the club team and National team considering offer incentives to keep Vadeeva heathy and playing in Russia only. Especially if she is the National teams next big hope to get back to Worlds and the Olympics.

I wonder how last night's world events effect Russian players coming here and vice versa. Can comrade Rebekkah instill some world peace?
