Makes very little sense for Cambage to be resentful. It's a whole new ownership group and coaching staff from when she played for Tulsa. Only three players remain from the 2013 team (Diggins, Johnson, Paris).

I wasn't referring to Liz....

1.Glory Johnson ?.....Glory has complained in the very resent past about not being fully appreciated.Cambage makes one trip to dallas,and wings management rolls out the red carpet.

2.I also remember Diggins making a dismissive comment about Cambage not showing up to play for tulsa.

3.The wings organization took Cambage on a tour of dallas,did any of the wing players tag along besides Phillips ?

4.Has any wings player posted a picture,or welcomed Cambage to dallas on social media ?...Liz was standing outside the wings locker room.You would think a couple of the wing players would show Cambage some social media love.

5.There seems to be very little interaction between Cambage and the rest of the wings players.

How can you question if your not sure ? The picture was when she was using her phone , we didnt get too see the interaction as the players entered the locker room or afterwards . Just the snippetts of information given via articles. This is not an issue in dallas at all guys . Cambage is being welcomed with open arms by every teammate , they have there goals in sight and they know she can help contribute drastically. Its about basketball and production not personal feelings. If thats the case we have already experienced that with Glory Johnson so putting the cloud over cambage also at this time during the season is not what we need .

Didnt realize the Glory situation was at this state... Confused

Glory for Erica DeSouza and go full 'rookie/young boom or bust' style with Shakhator as the PF? Question

And is it possible for Cambage to strategically play for DAL for one game this year so DAL no longer holds her rookie rights next year? Once LJ retired, I gave up on thinking of ways to bring her to SEA Twisted Evil

Sorry Zune Embarassed Im just a little shook up about this team this year and the wild personalities they have. The question you asked is very very possible but as a Die hard wings fan im trying to stay optimistic about the Cambage situation and hope that shes grown up a bit. We dont have room for another knucklehead on this squad. Laughing

All of this Cambage in Dallas talk is very misleading. If she's going to play, just come out and say it. Maybe Johnson wants out of Dallas? Johnson to Chicago for the rights to Coates? Cambage joins and Plaisance becomes the starting PF by default.

PG: Diggins/Chong
SG: Gray/Davis
SF: Christmas/Powers/Thornton
PF: Plaisance/Akhator
C: Cambage/Paris/Lewis

If Coates can play at some point, maybe Paris gets traded for a pick in 2018?

I'd put a stamp on both Phillips' and Cambage's asses and stuff them in the nearest mailbox. Both are simply trouble...both.

The reason why I brought up the interactions,or lack thereof,between Cambage/wing players is because I went on the Twitter/instagram/Facebook accounts of Diggins,Cambage,Johnson,Powers and Christmas.There was no mention of Cambage.Not even a retweet.

Coates is slow and will be coming off a year without playing , giving up glory for her would not be sufficient. Throw in Coates & 2018 1st Rounder then were in business !! Glory has high value , coates hasnt proved a thing at this level. Would be pretty dumb on Freds part but then again thats never stopped him so you never know. That 1st Rounder better be a constant if were talking Glory Trades though. Paris for Coates straight up though would be great for both teams !

It's funny, Cambage wants to be a campaigner against racism and yet she's the fucking Great White Whale of Shock/Wings basketball. It's amazing how many inches of text have been wasted on a player who's played bits of two seasons in the WNBA on rosters that won a combined 14 games.

I can understand the desperation of a franchise that hasn't been good since they were in Detroit, but the pursuit of a spoiled brat with a wildly inflated opinion of herself is a little pathetic. I think I'd have told her that if she ever wanted to show up and play, that'd be great. But until then, stay home and play with your gigantic ego.

Well maybe not exactly with OPEN arms Laughing but she hasnt signed nor is she really a teammate as of yet unless you get technical point towards that contract but in reality shes not , so team members saying things on social media might not be as big of a deal . These are all pro's i doubt they care if another player wants to join there team or not. This team will be competitive and good either way , With cambage i see Title chances sky rocket but without her we will make the playoffs still for sure.

But Glory is perceived as a cancer. While she is very talented, she is flaky I wouldn't build a team around her. I think the Wings would gladly trade Coates for GloJo. Addition by subtraction. Let her be someone else's problem.

What makes you so sure of this ? Laughing This trade was in the works before the season started and fell apart due to certain parties not wanting to include draft picks. So why would the equation be any different midway through the season with Glory Posting 9.2 PPG and 8.8 Rebs and Coates Not even playing a single game yet ?

What effect could she have on the morale if only 3 current players played with her previously and 1 of them being out for about 2 months ? I think the drama is being over analyzed . Rolling Eyes

There is no issue. She is getting thrown on a heap with Cambage which is not fair. One of the hardest workers in the league while Cambage is the opposite

All of this Cambage in Dallas talk is very misleading. If she's going to play, just come out and say it. Maybe Johnson wants out of Dallas? Johnson to Chicago for the rights to Coates? Cambage joins and Plaisance becomes the starting PF by default.

PG: Diggins/Chong
SG: Gray/Davis
SF: Christmas/Powers/Thornton
PF: Plaisance/Akhator
C: Cambage/Paris/Lewis

If Coates can play at some point, maybe Paris gets traded for a pick in 2018?


Coates is slow and will be coming off a year without playing , giving up glory for her would not be sufficient. Throw in Coates & 2018 1st Rounder then were in business !! Glory has high value , coates hasnt proved a thing at this level. Would be pretty dumb on Freds part but then again thats never stopped him so you never know. That 1st Rounder better be a constant if were talking Glory Trades though. Paris for Coates straight up though would be great for both teams !



When did this happen?


April 7, 1995 ?


I couldnt have said it any better Laughing She wont fix any of our defensive issues imo. She can rebound without question but so can glory and who knows if she will even be the old Coates after this injury so much time missed without a real game played. I dont think dallas are in a place to be wishing upon a star! Have you NOT seen pegasus? Laughing

I don't see why people are getting bent out of shape over the Cambage thing.
If Liz has some interest in playing in the WNBA again then to me that's a good thing. She's checking out her new team & city, and hopefully she likes what she sees and signs on next season.

I agree. We will see next season if she comes over and if she does it will be a good thing for Dallas

Should dallas miss the playoffs and win the lottery,they better take A.Wilson.Cambage will just have to come off the bench next season(If she shows up).

If cambage shows up she will not be coming off the bench , Thats for sure. If we do miss the playoffs and get AJA ! Then Glory can go , We play with AJA and Cambage together. Aja is not a 5 in the W

So dallas is going to make moves based on Cambage being the starting center ?.... .Unless Cambage makes a full commitment to the dallas franchise I see no reason to construct a roster based on Liz being the starting center.Wilson does not have the lateral quikness or foot speed to consistently guard PF's at the next level.She is best suited playing the center position.A Wilson/Cambage frontline would be similar to Wilson/Coates at USC.Wilson is at her best when she has space to operate.

And what happens when Cambage doesn't show up in 2019(world cup) and 2020(Tokyo Olympics) ?

If you win the lottery, you take the best player. At this point it looks like hands down, it is Aja. I disagree that she is a 5 in the W. To me she is clearly a 4 - like a better version of Breland (and I like Breland). But SAS is the big favorite to win the lottery anyway so Dallas is probably looking at the #3 or #4 at best.

Oh great....dallas gets to draft another wing

I still prefer Wilson at the 5.More space to operate,less of a liability on defense.At 6'5,Wilson would be the biggest pf in the league,minus EDD.

At this point you don't plan anything around Cambage ever being in town. If she shows up, great, bonus. You cut someone off the end of your bench like a Breanna Lewis and shuffle your rotation. But even if she signs a contract and says she's coming to play in 2018 and 2019, I wouldn't plan anything around that until she's actually arrived and wearing the uniform.

In fact, probably not until she's actually checked into a game. Or maybe five of them.

Liz Cambage does serve one purpose: She keeps the Dallas Wings' message count from dropping to SAS level ...

Heh. You could argue a lineup of Diggins-Smith/Powers/Gray/Davis/Christmas-Kelly could just about survive against some teams - and would be five natural 'wings' Smile.

At some point they might/maybe/possibly make a trade.

I enjoy this thread , happy to see a resurgence of this teams popularity since the dallas move. Id say people are paying more attention to Dallas vs when they were Tulsa. Glad to be apart of this movement . This is just my opinion from the old threads we use to have about Tulsa. Back to the topic Aja playing the 5 is not a good move. Shes best playing in that high post position where she has room to maneuver that 3 ft area for her soft jump shot shes mastered. Putting her at the 5 would force her downlow and take away from the best parts of her game on offense. Let alone on defense playing against the likes of S. Fowles , BG and Tina Charles, Imani Boyette . Doesnt seem like such a good idea , she cant guard any of those players.

Being the starting center doesn't limit a player to just the low post area(Jackson,Parker,Ogwumike).Wilson can still thrive in the high post/mid range game.Infact Wilson would be more effective on offense without a big post player clogging up the lane.Defending the PF positon will be a difficult task for Wilson.Stewart,Parker,Charles,etc can all shoot the ball with range.This will force Wilson away from the basket,neutralizing her shot blocking ability.Wilson can put her great wingspan to use by guarding opposing centers,and protecting the paint area.

Her great wingspan will protect the paint from BG and Sylvia Fowles ? or have a better shot stopping Parker or Stewart/ EDD ? Id take my chances on the latter Laughing
