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.

Monica Maxwell's name came up in one of the other threads, so here's a picture of her in action:
