Pay the Chicago Sky to have the privilege to phone in the picks to the league office for Amber Stocks? Smile

Super fantasy matchup with Jonezilla and The Incredible Sloot, both in the same game. You could get 80 points between two of them easily. C'mon Sky and Sun - play no defence (except block some shots now and then) and go to OT.

Sky would likely take Wilson & G. Williams. A dangerous team in 2018.

PG: Vandersloot/Faulkner
SG: Quigley/Pondexter
SF: Williams/Copper
PF: Wilson/Breland
C: Dolson/Coates/Parker

Why? You are not going to get much for her. If she is ok with coming off the bench then why not? She can still provide some scoring off the bench for them

JJ 2 fouls and maybe the SUN are flat in 5th game in 11 days.

2nd lowest 1st qtr w/ 15.

But, they'll probably turn it around, at home.

JJ picks up her 3rd and the flatness continues.

Maybe this is the stinker that's been looming...

Since the WNBA Champion almost always ends up being the team with a New York Liberty reject, does that mean the Sky are going to be 2017 WNBA Champions, or does getting cut by the Stars in camp negate that?

I think Chicago should show mercy on Connecticut by playing Pondexter more.

Brionna Jones has a wide center body, but the height of a power forward. Trying to think of power forwards who have been that stout. But I guess she's no shorter than Courtney Paris so she could play center.

Stocks has no qualms with picking up a player and throwing them right into games.

Hooper + Bulgak = 9-14 for 23 pts

Stocks is the real COY!

Kinda reminds me of MIN's game against the IND when Fowels got into very early foul trouble. Not watching the game but going by the box score.

The ever glorious response from a Lynx fan. Enjoy yourself right now because all the old farts on the Lynx will all be gone in five years. Laughing

Sun with this loss lose their slim chance for a second seed and a first round bye. Perhaps the recent eclipse of the Sun was indeed portentous.

It appears that she ( Bulgak'ed) that joint my friends.

Watched the second half and it appeared to me that J. Jone's 2nd and 3rd foul calls were very questionable. It probably wouldn't have made that much difference because both she and the team looked fairly gassed. Doesn't look good for them the rest of the way with so many games on the road. Was one of those games a make up game? if not they sure got hosed by the schedule makers.

Ideally they keep at least one forward/center who can stretch the defense, and I'd probably rather have Bulgak than Ndour. A post rotation of Dolson/Coates/Breland/Parker/Bulgak isn't terrible, it's not going to win many individual matchups but it complements the guard core decently.

That said, I'm probably aiming too low for a team that is going to have two top 5 picks in such a killer draft. I liked Bulgak a lot for a low-first round pick in the 2016 class, but if it's between her and A'ja Wilson...well...

How many games out of the 4 do the Sky need to lose out of the 4 remaining to get in the lottery? 2?

No matter what, if they lost 3 they are out and maybe if they lose 2 depending the tie breakers and what Seattle and Dallas do. Sky play MN, NY, Dallas and SEA. Could play a big hand in determining their own fate. Could come down to the last game against the Storm.

I can't say I mind the timing on this stretch of throwback games from Jasmine Thomas.

Tough road trip to close the regular season for Connecticut: at Washington, at Phoenix and at Los Angeles.
