Very true. As a shooter off the bench, not as much, but better conditioning could only help her.

as a shooter off the bench, she needs to shoot better. This year she was abysmal in pretty much every aspect, but especially as a shooter.

They gave her a whole lot of guaranteed money, so I doubt Stricklen is going anywhere, but yeah - if she's not in better shape soon, she could be entirely out of the league once that deal is done.

Stricklen is a terrible defender -- not quite KML bad, but still pretty bad. Everyone was asking how a poor defensive team like Atlanta ends up with two players on the All-Defensive 1st Team. Well, the answer is that the other defenders have to be twice as bad or in Stricklen's case, three times.

Fat Stricklen being asked to play out of position half the time on a bad team is a terrible defender. Vaguely-in-shape Stricklen playing a consistent and defined role in Connecticut on a good team was pretty serviceable. She played a lot of minutes for a team that finished 4th, 5th and 4th in the league defensively the last three years. She could be a decent piece if she was in shape and on a team that had a coherent shape and used her properly.
