Before she got hurt she was having a MVP type of season, she also added a few new moves to her game, hopefully she'll come back strong.

You must be a really excited fan to give three exclamation points at the end of the subject title! Very Happy

Or you had too much coffee! Wink

Crusty old journalists would always tell youngsters that you only had a certain number of exclamation points available for use -- and when you ran out, you went directly to the Great Newsroom in the Sky.

Sorry to pile on, but when there's a Pratchett quote available...

"Multiple exclamation marks,' he went on, shaking his head, 'are a sure sign of a diseased mind.'"

I plan on add a 4th next off season, and maybe it'll be the official 2016 WNBA MVP offseason thread.

If there's one bright spot to skylar's injury,it's that it happened in the first 3rd of the season.So she should be fully recovered come 2016 training camp.If Diggins performs in the first half as she did the prior two seasons,there's no reason why she should be left off the Olympic team.

I just hope Skylar skips that meaningless celebrity all-star game in febuary.

Yeah there is. Odyssey Sims is a much better talent. And Geno and the Olympic committee can see that.

Diggins made significant improvement in her 3pt shooting and asst/to ratio last season,while Sims took a step back in both categories.

Diggins:3ptfg asst/to
2014: 28% 1.7/1
2015: 45% 2.5/1

Sims: 3ptfg asst/to
2014: 35% 2.0/1
2015: 20% 1.4/1

Diggins also did a better job of running the offense.If Geno wants a defensive pg,he'd be better off taking January over Sims.

I'd have no problem with this.January is an elite defender who can guard both backcourt positions,and is a great 3pt shooter.I just wish team USA would take two young guards(Diggins,Sims,January,Sloot,DRob) and one veteran(Bird,Whalen).

Eh. Sophomore slump a little maybe. Who knows? Plus I'm pretty sure Diggins was on a hot streak from three. Stats don't always tell the whole story. I doubt they look at WNBA stats at the Olympic camps/tryouts anyway, they look at how they perform in practice and scrimmages and Sims is obviously the better talent IMO. And that's a NO on January over Sims, although she's better than most international PG's so I guess it wouldn't matter that much.

Since the Wings have other urgent needs do you think Sims or Diggins will get traded for some other player or a pick in the draft? I am betting this may happen.

Doubt it. They are the stars of the team. Stars put butts in the seats. Why trade away bonafide stars for not so sure things?

Sims, maybe. I cannot imagine them trading Diggins unless they are getting a superstar in return.

Since it's a big market and all, I suppose we'll be getting better coverage of the team.

I look to how the team did to determine who is better. With Diggins (without Sims) the Shock beat MN at MN. With Sims (without Diggins) the Shock accomplished about nothing. In fact, the last season's performance is pretty much a closed case.

If she comes back from this knee injury playing like she did at the start of last season she'll be an MVP candidate.

LOL. OK. She ain't even the best guard on her own team. Sims is a much better talent IMHO. But if that's her plan, more power to her. But she should know, she's not the only player who is working her ass off to try and be the best, and there MAY actually be players that are working harder than she is. I hope this doesn't come as a shocker to anyone Shocked

Talent only gets you so far.

After seeing how much Skylar improved in the short space of time between her WNBA debut and her injury, I personally won't be laughing too hard at her ambitions.

are you saying she can't be the best player in the world. i think she can be and her hard work will get her. 2014 and start of 2015 she was lights out and yes she is the best player on her team.

She can be one of the best in the world. But if Maya and EDD keep playing like they have and keep improving then she wont be the best..

Its about goals. She is basically saying she is going to give it her all to TRY to be the best. I personally think she is in it for the long haul as long as she stays healthy. No she may not be recognized as the best next season or the season after that but if she continues to improve as she has done already, eventually she actually could be considered the best in the league at some point. Kind of like how LBJ has held that title for awhile in the NBA but now there are rumblings its actually Steph Curry now.

Diggins proved in year number 2 for her that she's one of the best players in the world, and also one of the hardest players to officiate.

Yeah, but for some reason year #2 wasn't a big enough factor to get her on the national team.

I'm not laughing at her ambitions. Notice I didn't laugh after I said "more power to her". I laughed because she's not even close to the best in the world, even before the injury. Maybe she should set some attainable shorter term goals first. And I'm assuming the more talented guard on her team, Sims, is going to work hard at her game as well. To me Diggin's overall skills and skill level are nothing special. The one thing I'll say about Diggins is she has confidence in her game and she plays aggressively, which I think makes her a solid player (and the Shock offense kind of caters to aggressive guards). Best in the world though...no way, not any time soon. But if that's her goal and she wants to try, that's cool. I just personally don't think It'll ever happen.

Best guard, maybe?

Best in the world is subjective, so to some she's already there.

Are you willing to regard a WNBA MVP or Finals MVP as a less subjective indicator of who's best, or are you just going to deny her no matter what she accomplishes?

Seemed to me that Tulsa without Diggins and with Sims was worse than Tulsa without Sims and with Diggins.

Not to be facetious here or anything but wasn't ClayK and ChicagoAnnie just vocalizing their opinion about your opinion of Diggins' aspirations on a women's basketball message board forum? I mean yeah, you have the right to your opinion as do they, right?

LOL. OK. She ain't even the best guard on her own team. Sims is a much better talent IMHO. But if that's her plan, more power to her. But she should know, she's not the only player who is working her ass off to try and be the best, and there MAY actually be players that are working harder than she is. I hope this doesn't come as a shocker to anyone Shocked


Seemed to me that Tulsa without Diggins and with Sims was worse than Tulsa without Sims and with Diggins.


Agreed. Sims may be more of a complete player, but Diggins is more valuable.

Precisely. How is it taking "shit too far" to express an opinion on what a player said on a forum where the very purpose is to talk about women's basketball and give opinions? lol. This place is funny sometimes.

If she stays healthy,Diggins will have a legit shot at winning the mvp in 2016.Dallas will also be a title contender.
