DT Talks ‘07 Finals (IG video)

“I remember it pretty clearly. Penny scores, I hit a three and then Cappie hits a jumper. Then I was like, they’re in trouble.”

Hear from Diana Taurasi as she talks with Kevin Ray about capturing the first title in franchise history.

Former Mizzou star Sophie Cunningham ready for shortened WNBA season
https://www.columbiatribune.com/sports/20200624/former-mizzou-star-sophie-cunningham-ready-for-shortened-wnba-season

Quote:
But basketball isn’t the only thing on Cunningham’s agenda this summer. Teams and players could spend as many as four months on site at IMG Academy, meaning players under the lockdown will need to find ways to fill the time. So in addition to her work on the court, Cunningham plans to host a podcast and a video journal from inside the bubble.

Along with teammates and roommates Brittany Griner and Brianna Turner, Cunningham hopes to bring viewers inside the bubble through conversations with players and coaches and video segments from the campus.

“It’s going to be quite raw,” she said. “I know a lot of people are interested in what’s going to go on down there, so I’m going to take it upon myself to show people.”


Quote:
Cunningham has mixed feelings on the matter, and the 23-year-old guard has other hang-ups, as well.

For so many WNBA players, the choice to spend parts of the year playing overseas in places such as France, Turkey, Russia and China is a financial one, but also one that comes with certain sacrifices. The time in Australia proved valuable for Cunningham, but it also pulled her away from her home, her family and the people in her life she cares about most. Now, she and so many others around the league are being pulled away once again.

“You’re already isolated from home for six months of the year (when overseas),” she said. “So for us to go into the bubble where we can’t see our people while we’re here in America, I understand why we’re doing it, but it still sucks.”

Nonetheless, Cunningham is eager for a return to court. If all goes well during the early weeks in the bubble, basketball is less than a month away.

For Cunningham, it can’t come soon enough.

With the Boomers in Australia, she found a bigger role and more opportunities to settle into professional basketball, and her performances once again began to resemble the kinds that wowed fans at Mizzou Arena from 2015-19.

Her ... let's call it "feisty" ... reputation also again began to resemble that from Mizzou, which I hadn't seen as much evidence of during the WNBA season. Now I get it.

She’s got a great mentor in Taurasi to learn from.

Why do I get the feeling Skylar's gonna opt out? I'm thinking about a recent tweet of hers where she's 100% right, but I'm just like... "is this also a sort of precursor to announcing that she herself won't be playing?" Embarassed

Fwiw, I'm also feeling the same thing about Cambage, so maybe the Wings fans on here have just gotten in my head a bit. Razz

How much income does Diggins-Smith make from non-basketball avenues? Because a lot of the players who have opted out already or might still do so make more money playing overseas. That means that for them, participating in this WNBA season not only comes with the obvious risks but also has the potential to cost them that overseas income if they get hurt or sick. But Diggins-Smith has never played overseas. If she's going to make any income from basketball, unless she changes her previous patterns, this is it. And you'd think playing overseas is even less likely now that she has a child.

Given all that, and the incentive to prove herself on a new team after pretty much setting fire to every bridge behind her on her way out of Dallas, I kinda think she'll play. This could even be a good format for Phoenix if their key players all participate. Taurasi doesn't have as long to break down and Griner might have fewer distractions. Could work out for them.

Alanna Smith has officially arrived in Phoenix. That should make Mercury's roster of 11 official now.

I'd be shocked if Hartley didn't show up to collect her $.

Every Mercury player has been at practice except for Alanna Smith who just arrived in Phoenix today. Odds are looking like the Mercury will be at full strength this season.

It wouldn’t shock me if PHX were to win the whole thing this year. This plays out favorably for them.
