DeMya Walker (Liberty player #22), but I don't know the Atlanta Dream player she is trying to blind.

Pretty sure that's Sancho Lyttle with DeMya's hands on her.

I believe only McCarville and Thomas never become WNBA all-stars.

Shortest career was LaToya Thomas at 6 years.

Technically, Lindsey Harding has never been an All Star. She did play in the Stars at the Sun game in 2010.

Excuse me??

#7 on the Houston Comets was no one other than Tina Thompson.

Do you really think the person in the picture looks like Byears????

One of my favorite shots I've ever taken. Leslie on the bench during a game in her last season. It just all shows on her face in this image. Cameras are funny things.

Janel McCarville doesn't look too happy being selected by the Charlotte Sting! Rolling Eyes

OTOH, some of these photos were taken long after their WNBA Draft day. Example: Lauren Jackson was a redhead when she was drafted.

In light of the ESPN The Magazine's annual "Body Issue" coming out, here's one from the past, featuring a certain WNBA player.

From 1997, the inaugural season, Danielle Viglione works out in the Arco Arena weight room. With her is Al Biancani, the strength coach for both the Sacramento Monarchs and the Sacramento Kings.

Nice article by Joe Davidson -- I remember seeing Viglione play in high school.

Vicki Baugh is now the area's WNBA representative.

This is Spot, mascot of the Portland Fire, doing a parody of the old Nike Rhythm commercials.


Jon Cudo, who was Spot the Fire Dog, has been Moondog for the Cleveland Cavaliers since 2003.

I'll go you one better on mascots. This is Klik the Mouse, mascot of the San Jose Lasers:



The plastic parts of Klik were later reused as the cyber armor of Rikter the Cyberdog, former mascot of the San Jose Earthquakes.

However, since Klik and the Lasers were not WNBA, they don't count fot TBT. Therefore, gaze at this large picture of E.C. Hill

Literally missing for years, I just found a printed version of this piece going through old papers. It's not that old, 2009, but it was in there with the really old stuff somehow. Anyway. Another of my personal favs. I will forever be scratching my head that the WNBA didn't pull more of these stunts. My offering for Throwback Thursday!!!

Women 102, Haters Zero

It was a half-hearted, almost tongue-in-cheek effort in terms of promotion, which was to be expected. The WNBA is, after all, an actual professional sports league, still closely attached to the NBA, heretofore stodgy, respectable in its own eyes, with scores of co-owners, investors and sponsors, many of whom would likely not be amused by an embarrassing and desperate marketing spectacle.

Too bad.

So there was no setting of the table of expectations with a media blitz brought to you by charismatic figures like Bobby Riggs. And, unlike the nationwide anticipation and exploitive spectacle that preceded American sports first modern Battle of the Sexes, even devoted followers of womens basketball seemed to be caught off guard by the last-minute announcement of the game on the leagues normally staid and altogether corporate-careful website.

The contest was clearly there on the WNBA preseason schedule, but that pretty much was the extent of the promotion prior to game day.

The facts are pretty straightforward. The WNBAs Chicago Sky, a team that finished last season with 12 wins and 22 losses, a team that only 25% of the leagues GMs pick to even make the playoffs in 2009, was matched against the E-League All-Stars, a not-ready-for-primetime collection of singers, rappers, actors, comedians, all hailing from a basketball league made up of entertainers with real athletic skills and prowess where, it is said, real basketball is played in real games in a real league by, you guessed it, real men most in their 20s and 30s and decades younger than Bobby Riggs was when he met his match back in 1973.

Sorry for being a day late, so I guess this is a "Flashback Friday" instead!

And here's Betty Lennox being hit in the face by a ball which was batted away by Kelly Miller!

I'm a few weeks behind but I actually miss the Sun "McDonald" uniforms. There is so much blue already and the league and I'm not sure how Navy Blue encompasses a mascot called the Sun. I wish they'd go back to the look. Maybe less yellow and more orange, but I didn't hate it.

Oh, that was GREAT! They should make commercials like that - now that the level of play has increased tremendously and the competion is fierce.

I used to follow Tina on instagram. Not sure if I got blocked or I unfollowed or whatever, because I can't follow her anymore. Anyway, she showed pics of 2 articles in a matter of one week. Each photo credit mistaking her for someone else. One she was labeled as Cooper and maybe the other one she was labeled as Swoopes? No respect. She never lost a step through out her career.

From left to right: Katie Douglas, Tiffany McCain, and Brooke Wyckoff.

This is either from 2001 or '02, before the Orlando Miracle moved to become the Connecticut Sun. And what does those hand signs signify, anyway?

Shalee Lehning in her rookie year (2009) with the Atlanta Dream and Dream head-coach Marynell Meadors.



Lehning had been an assistant at her alma mater (Kansas State) and an Associate Head Coach at the University of Northern Colorado, before leaving UNC earlier this year and partnering up with a gun manufacturer.

Is Lehning not in coaching any more, then? If so, that's a shame. She seemed like a natural coach when she was over here with the Dream several years ago. Really seemed to love teaching the game (and working with the kids) when they did the WNBA Cares sessions.

From the 1998 season. Notice how the bottom right-hand corner of the photo refers to the "WNBA Championship" and not "WNBA Finals".

The card is from the Phoenix-Cleveland semifinal, so no big surprise there

I posted some of the following pics before, in another thread. But with recent news of the Tulsa Shock now rebranded as the Dallas Wings, here's a look back at the last time Dallas had a women's pro basketball franchise...
