my semi finals would be

PX vs Seattle

leading to a finals of

Chi vs Seattle

and just like tonight
Seattle comes out on top

I would take Phoenix as the most balanced and complete team. Griner and Pierson provide tough, hard-nosed defense while Taurasi, Pondexter and Bonner are all dynamic scorers. Chicago, Seattle and Dallas would be the next 3 teams. Chicago and Dallas both have dominant centers (Fowles and Cambage). Seattle has Stewart and Jackson who would be able to compete to some degree and would create major matchup problems. Connecticut would be #5 as the other complete team.

The next 3 teams for me would be Indiana, Los Angeles and Minnesota in no particular order based on some major star power but some glaring holes. Atlanta, Las Vegas and Washington would form the next cluster and the Liberty would be last. Hard to believe that in 18 years of picks the Liberty have not been able to draft a single perennial all-star,

This is harder than I thought. Our only keepers have been bigs. And yes, I realize I didn't have to pick nearly all current Sparks. Our draft history has left much to be desired.

Wiese was 0/3 for the year Laughing Laughing
