There are only a few things that will make this remotely interesting:

Swoopes is making a coaching comeback.
Former W assistants, Jim Petersen or Tree Rollins
Former head coaches, Carol Ross or Marynell Meadows
Former player, Penny Taylor
Resting Player, Angel McCoughtry

I think we will benefit the most in this draft if the eligible early declares all go as planned. 2 Possible Future All stars with diggins johnson and powers could be a scary team in 2 - 3 years. We cant do worse than...

Plum & Coates
Diamond & Coates
Mitchell & Coates
Vice verse Swapping Coates For B. Jones. This is going to be an exciting team to watch at UTA!

I think #1 & #2 will be Mitchell & Plum. Dallas will likely land Coates & DeSheilds. If Mitchell doesn't declare, they'll land Coates & either SWK or Coffey.

But What does Chi need with plum? Her and slooty are virtually the same giving slooty the advantage due to experience. Maybe Sign & Trade or Take Deshields at 2 if mitchell declares seems more fitting for the sky.

In the lottery, you shouldn't be concerned about fit unless the player that fits your team the best is deemed to be a very good player. There are no game changers in this draft. You take the best available and figure the rest out later, IMO.

But I'd still prefer DeShields at this point..

Yeah i do agree with best talent over needs but in this draft i dont see any player drastically upgrading a team instantly so why not stick with needs vs talent?

Because Cappie isn't going to play forever and we don't know how long CHI will be able to keep both PGs.

Plum can workout to be Cappie's replacement. How much longer does she have anyways? And Quigley had one of her worst seasons last year. They need scoring with EDD gone.

Disagree with this part....Quigley-9.5p/47%/37%/82% in only 17.8 mpg-Nearly double digit scoring in less than 20 minutes.Quigley would be a great pickup for any team looking to add bench depth.

It's kind of a big deal.

Taj is baaaaaaaaack!

She picked the right team to eventually take over since Williams is on borrowed time.

What makes you think she would be any better than Fred? Since 2012 she hasn't spent more than a year in 1 coaching position, which is a big red flag to me.

What are you talking about?
Taj's Post University was
7-22 the season before she got there
4-24 in her first season
3-24 this season

Probably realized Post was too much of a rebuild or realized she was more of a pro coach. Smile

Or maybe it's just that "popular veteran" does not automatically equal "good coach."

It depends. The same was basically true of Steph White, who then was a successful short-term coach in Indiana. It is yet to be seen if she will be successful as a college head (Vandy seems like a major rebuild) but the potential flakiness red flag was not a problem as a head coach in the W.

First game of #AFLW is over for Erin Phillips, and Wings fans will be pleased to know that she survived it (although she copped plenty of hits along the way as you'd expect from her). She was one of the best on ground, kicking 3 of Adelaide's 7 goals in a big win Very Happy
I expect her to feature prominently in news stories and video clips after that performance.
Former New York Liberty guard Jess Bibby also played in this game.


The AFLW Grand Final was today. Not only did Erin's Adelaide Crows win, but Erin won the medal for "Best on Ground" in the game. She survived the match, now she'll just need to survive tonight's championship celebrations.

According to the article (and the usual awkward translation these programs offer), Glory claims that she was using medication with a doctor's permission after giving birth, that her manager was aware of it, "and that she was using it due to ill health." So something for post-partum, maybe? Seems a long time after the birth to be taking something for physical symptoms.

Regardless, I can't say I'm surprised.

Here's the whole article translated by Google

Quote:
From KBL teams, Canik Municipality's American play Glory Johnson was banned. After the MBC match, Johnson, whose samples were positive, was ordered to take administrative measures. Accordingly, Johnson probably closed the season.

Johnson went 5 games in the Canik Municipality and won 22.2 points, 14.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks.

Glory Johnson stated that he was using medication with a doctor's report after birth and that his manager in America was aware of it and that he was using it due to ill health.

Glory Johnson, who was married to Brittney Griner, gave birth to twins after these ties. The Griner & Johnson marriage ended in a fight, and for this reason the WNBA two playmakers had fined seven games.

Canik Municipality loses 11 points with 6 wins. Osmaniye Youth, Girne University and MBK have 5'er wins.



I'd be curious of the nature of this drug. If she's still taking pain meds 18 months after giving birth, maybe she's addicted?

Honestly it hasnt been that long ago maybe about a year or less than . Remember her twins were premi's so that could have taken a huge toll especially coming back to the court so fast.

I always said if its not any type of performance enhancing drug or illegal narcotic's, then who cares. But knowing Glory's whack job history, it's probably worse than what she's saying, being a huge liar and all, she really has no credibility.

Why does everyone assume dallas is willing to take there hand-me down players for our 3 1st round Draft picks ? Laughing Every thread has a trade proposal with some sub-par 6th man off the bench player for our picks ? Maybe #10 could be up for grabs but people should realize WE SEE THE SAME VALUE IN PICKS 3 & 4 AS YOU DO . Rolling Eyes

Much like the camps, Diggins was limited in her workouts a year ago by her knee. But before her fifth season, she is confident in what she will bring to the Wings in their second season in Dallas-Fort Worth.

"From a feeling standpoint, I feel like an athlete and I feel like Sky," Diggins said. "[I'm] looking like Skylar, I'll just say that."

And when she steps back onto the College Park Center court in Arlington, she might have a few new, young fans watching their favorite camp counselor.

And when she steps back onto the College Park Center court in Arlington, she might have a few new, young fans watching their favorite camp counselor.


I hope shes right , a healthy diggins is a game changer . Sucked watching her last year return to early and be a non-factor in the beginning . The LA game was a glimpse of the old Diggy . This year my expectations are high for her .

The organisers of Bluesfest have announced a number of support acts for their sideshows, including basketball legend Liz Cambage, who will open for Mary J. Blige in Melbourne...


Liz is a "basketball legend"? Well, maybe in Australia, I guess.

The marketing world has taken over. It's all part of language inflation -- hyperbole is the norm. Words like gigantic and enormous aren't sufficient, so people combine them into "ginormous".
