Ooh, an important clash early in the season. Who is going to take the early lead?

Based on last year, I get the pessimism from Sky fans, but Sloot and Quig are one of the best backcourts in the W, Dolson is probably the 5th best center in the W, and there some good rookies. Seems like a decent team to me.

Had to relook at the Fever's roster, if the Sky lose this game they don't deserve to be a franchise.

If you’re talking about this game specifically, Sloot won’t be playing.

As far as the season as a whole, would you rate CHI a better team than ATL?

well, I hope they can maintain some kind of positive attitude even in the face of adversity. With Sloot out, this might be their best chance of the year...but still a long, long shot. Just think a win would mean that they could say that at one point in the year they were #1 in the league.

With the level of pessimism here you guys are predicting the Sky will have a regular season record of zero wins and thirty-four losses. Yes, the Sky will be so bad that they will have to reach up to touch the bottom of the league.
But the prediction for another team that for years has been THE WORST DEFENSIVE TEAM IN THE LEAGUE will win the championship this year.RIGHT! Laughing Laughing Laughing

I think the Sky will win several games [I'm guessing 5 - 8]... especially when Sloot returns and the planets align correctly and Dolson decides to play as well as she can and Quigles is making her baskets. The real question is will Indy win any? If they win 2 that will exceed expectations.

The Sky will have a season record that is worst than their 2017 record? Really? I will say this if the three starters from last year can play at a high level equivalent to their winning streak last season and the team can get better production from both of the forward positions then the Sky should finish the season with a better record than the 2017 season.
If the three starters play poorly and the newcomers do not perform well then yes the Sky should fall.

5-8 wins would put Chicago's winning pct. no higher than .235. Adding Williams and DD along with Sloot, Quigley and Dolson (when the former two return) makes them a competitive team. They may only win 13-14 games in a parity-heavy league, but that speaks more to the talent throughout the league.

I can totally, however, see the Fever winning no more than 5 games this year. I think there's going to be a lot of teams just above and just below .500 this year. Other than Minnesota and LA, I'm not sold that anyone else will win 20 games, and that's with some really good teams out there. I just think all the talent-loaded teams between 3 and 10 will take turns knocking each other off. Maybe Phoenix or Atlanta or CT or NY will also win 20 but I'd be surprised if any more than four teams won 20 games. Actually I'd be shocked. If four teams win 20+, that means 3-4 teams will probably lose 20. Other than Chicago and Indiana, I don't think any team is that bad. Even Vegas once they get their scorers back...they're decent and Laimbeer's coaching is probably good for 2-3 extra wins.

Yeah Chicago can win anywhere between 10-17 games. Stocks seems to get the best out of her group if judging from last season. Indiana on the other hand i say 5-10 wins most likely. They will battle with vegas and i believe seattle for the cellar dwellars.

Very inconsiderate of the WNBA to schedule the only game of the day at the same time as the FA Cup final.

I'm not sure how much crossover there is, but I'm pretty sure the WNBA doesn't want to showcase this game.

As you probably realised, I wasn't entirely serious. But yeah, you have a point. The most glaringly tanking team of the season vs a 'deep' team without their controlling hand. Early season WNBA games are often messy, but this could be a really prime example.

I do wish they would have scheduled more than a single game on each of the opening two days, and then better avoided the NBA playoff overlap on Warriors vs. Rockets Game 3 Day tomorrow.
