Do you think we can hold on to the top seed? Who scares you in the playoffs


1. Probably, dependant upon health of course. I like our chances in a five-game series against anyone if we have all of our players.

2. Atlanta and Dallas scare me the most. We've also only played Minnesota once this year, and it was probably our worst loss of the year. I see all these other teams either beating them or hanging with them for 40 minutes and I'm like why isn't that the Minnesota team that showed up that night to play us?? So that's concerning. Additionally, I want NO part of Toliver in a playoff matchup. Having home court advantage over Washington wouldn't even make it better, as she seems to really love playing in Key Arena.

One thing I'm particularly happy about with this team at this point is how well they've played on the road. That makes me feel more optimistic about our chances in a five-game series no matter who we are playing--anyone can have an off night, even at home; if we end up with a couple of byes and come out flat in Game 1 at home, we'll absolutely still have a chance in the series.

Can we talk about the difference in the overall vibe of the team with Dan Hughes coaching? He is obviously what we'd call a 'players' coach', and of course it doesn't hurt that he has a great team for that--smart veterans, incredibly calm and easy going young players, and a ton of WNBA experience between himself and his two assistant coaches. There have been quite a few things this year (in-game and just overall stuff about how the team is being handled) that have just made me go, "Wow. This is different and refreshing."

What I noticed is that the team just seems well-organized. The ball usually moves pretty crisply on offense, and people are in the right places on defense.

It would be great to stay out of the one-game playoffs. We will be a really tough out in a 5-game series against anyone.

All the teams have the crazy schedules, so wouldn’t it work in favor of the younger teams?

The Lynx have a back-to-back road trip against the Sparks and the Storm coming up very shortly. Very important games. I hope they are well rested and Larkins got plenty of gel time in.

Storm need to win 1 and Dream need to lose 1 if the Storm want to get 1st place right?

We will most likely clinch the top seed against New York tomorrow, and I have tickets to the Dallas game Sunday.

Dallas might still be fighting for their playoff lives. Cambage may or may not play.

What do you think the Storm will do? Will Hughes rest the starters completely?

Starters won't need rest with the long layoff for the top seed. I'd try keep Dallas out of the playoffs. If they ever got their act together they could be a difficult team.

They won't need rest but why risk injury? I'm guessing not a lot of starter minutes.

So could the Aces, but either one would have to win 2 one-game playoffs on the road before the Storm have to worry about them.

Depends on what scares you most - injuries, Aces or Wings. I think Wings are the scariest team this side of Phoenix.

That's easy - like any super hero they get their butts whipped time and time again until they properly harness their super powers.

Sue is really our DJ. She will put on a playlist, usually it’s hip-hop to get us warmed up. We don’t have like one certain song, but we just kind of listen to whatever is in the playlist.

Does anyone know why Sami Whitcomb missed the parade and celebration? Maybe she needed to get right back to Australia?

I just don't see Seattle making the playoffs...The rest of the league has improved so much....Seattle should focus on getting a lottery pick in 2019.


My Predictions have the storm finishing somewhere in the 10-12 area.


Unless Seattle can add 2-3 more legit rotation players,10-12 wins is about right.


Well damn i was predicting there standing lol but 10-12 wins sounds about right also. Poor sue wont be able to go out a winner. Shes won enough


Never so happy to be proven right, no lottery pick in 2019, most likely another ‘ship.

They made her an injury sub for the Opals. The real games start in only 5 days.

If I were Jewell Loyd, I would have skipped the parade and made a dash for Team USA camp, unless they already assured her that her spot was locked up.

Loyd is probably a lock over the Mitchells.
