Maybe.

I know AMD is talking, but I'm not actually hearing the words she's speaking.

lol, I was being facetious. I can't imagine watching this team playing for its 6th straight gold and caring about who's on the roster.

I have to wonder if some of the people being so critical of Whalen have seen her play before. Not a pass-first PG? She's only led the WNBA in assists 5 times. Her career FG% is a very respectable .466 and she's only averaged 12 career ppg. Hardly a ball hog.

Bird has chemistry with Taurasi and Whalen is more of a penetrating guard, something that may not look as stylistically wonderful in international play because there's no defensive three second violation. So teams can pack the lane.

Either way you're talking about two of the best passing PGs in the history of the WNBA. Just because USA has played better with Bird at times than with Whalen, it doesn't minimize Whalen's ability as a player.

She prefers to pass. She's always preferred to pass.

She's just better at scoring.

You would hope that a WNBA commentator follows the WNBA, but that doesn't seem to be a requirement for the job.

Why take Catch out?? Has she scored?


I've watched (and liked) Whalen from her sr. yr at MINN, to games at the Casino as a Sun, to the Lynx.

I'm aware of her game.

She's made some non-pass decisions that surprised me.

You should know Geno well enough to know that Diana, Sue and Catch were going to exit the game together, with a few minutes left to play. That shit was senior night, Olympic version. Laughing

They should have went for 104. Must not have been aware of the record.
Congrats on the GOLD!

The best part besides gold is it looks like everyone will leave able to play upon WNBA return, including Bird.

Taurasi being one of three players to win her 4th Gold Medal this year means she stands alone? Confused

Geno played Catch 6:33 in a blowout. Everyone else got at least 11 minutes. Surprised he didn't find a way to cut her also.
