Getting bounced early from the playoffs, JSpoon's 1000 trade ideas, Shoni being a no show, Kiah gaining 50 pounds and being garbage, Kiah losing 50 pounds and being a savior all help. Wink

I think part of the reason also for so much talk about the Libs is our fan base is very loyal. We also have been waiting so long to finally get over the hill and get that first championship, that we are so engaged as to what the team is doing to get us there.

New York, despite the Knicks, is a great basketball town, maybe the best in the country. I think the general interest in the sport trickles down to the WNBA.

I agree. Which is why it's so sad and infuriating that Dolan and his hires have done such a terrible job with the Knicks for so long.

Hartley was so so lost and out of space that i thought she was from another Planet, but i am so happy she's improved and proven me wrong. she reminds me of a poor woman's Boyd lol because of her Speed. but Boyd is a little bit more explosive and stronger build wise. Hartley is good in transition and does have a good shot. when Charles or any Liberty player rebounds the ball they are lookin for her and she had alot of fast break attempts in Dallas were she should of made a couple more. The Libs should keep doin that take advantage of her agility and speed to create high percentage easy baskets.

A week off will help alot especially Charles and Rodgers who logged alot of minutes last night.

I'm thinking L. Allen will be the backup PG to Prince when she returns and Hartley becomes the 10th/11th person off the bench. Starters remain Prince, Rodgers, Zellous, Charles, Stokes. Bench order goes: Vaughn, L. Allen, Raincock, R. Allen, Hartley, Zahui B.

I think it'll be situational. LFO has id'ed L. Allen as an energy player. If they need energy and a bigger defender, Allen will come in. If they need offense, Hartley will. If one is struggling, as was the case with Allen last night, the other will get more of those leftover minutes.

We can't be sure yet if or how well it will work to have Zellous, Prince, and Rodgers all on the court for long stretches. The Liberty have only played 11 games. Prince has missed the last six. Boyd had some playing time at point guard in the first two games. So Laimbeer has had only three games without Boyd but with Zellous, Prince, and Rodgers.

Let's hope it works wonderfully. We will get another look soon.

It really is going to be interesting to see what Zellous looks like once Prince is back. Because there were 2+ years of that passive shadow-Zellous in Indiana and New York before the current version came out to play again. Even this season she didn't emerge until Boyd got hurt and Prince left town. So can she carry on being this aggressive, effective variant when there's another ball-dominant scoring option around on top of what they've already got?

I mean, for example, that burst Mo Currie had in San Antonio when they put the ball in her hands a lot at the start of the season (because there was no one else), has completely disappeared once they got their guards back. Obviously it's a different situation, coach and team, but sometimes it's all about the opportunity. It can be difficult to maintain levels when the situation changes around you.

Yeah, I think the Liberty start over when Prince and Vaughn return. Laimbeer is just making do with what he has right now. No way he can keep playing Tina all these minutes. And will Zellous continue to be a big scorer once Prince returns? The combinations will be different, so the roles will be different. They'll have to tweak the way they play to make it work. For instance, the changes they made to help Hartley get the ball up the court may no longer be needed. However, it may be necessary to account for Prince's lack of speed. And will Hartley continue to be effective once she's no longer starting? Just during these last five games things have changed. For instance, Stokes was dominant in the first three games, especially off the boards. Now, she's back to looking physically sluggish or mentally out of it. Is the problem her, the way the team plays or adjustments by the opponent? Overall, I think NY is a team still searching for their identity.

Yes, this is what I was trying to address above, but I only wrote about the guards. There's so much that isn't clear. When Vaughn returns, for example, what will that mean for Raincock-Ekunwe? How much will she play and where? And can Rebecca Allen show that she deserves regular playing time? The many questions are partly why I don't see New York as a #2 seed. Way too much uncertainty.

Prince and Vaughn will return for game #13. My hope is that over the following 10 or so games Laimbeer can better determine how he'd like to use his roster. Then a final stretch with the rotation and player use more defined before the playoffs.

I think it's more important to be playing well at the end of the season than where we're seeded. The last two years we played great through 80% of the schedule and then faded. I'd rather be mediocre for most of the season, but then get hot at the right time.

Well that turned out to be like when a commentator talks about a great free-throw streak. Kia Vaughn can turn around and come home already, two days into the tournament.

On second thought, I'm sorry for Ameryst Alston or Cierra Burdick. An earlier-than-expected return for Vaughn is likely to mean an earlier-than-expected departure for one of them.

Alston will be first to go. Then Burdick assuming Laimbeer keeps L. Allen.

Interesting question. If you view Alston as depth at guard, Vaughn doesn't help you there. It would actually make more sense to drop Burdick first if you're going to let her go anyway.

I doubt it matters. Neither Alston or Burdick are seeing any playing time. And we'd only be without Prince for one more game(June 23).

Just watched a brief video interview with Bill Laimbeer about the Dallas game. Here's something he mentioned as important that I hadn't considered: blocked shots. New York had 11 blocked shots on Friday night. Four for Charles, three for Stokes, two for Zahui B, one for Rodgers, one for Zellous. I don't know how many came in the second half or the overtime, but I believe a good number did.

For 11 games, New York is averaging 4.6 blocked shots per game. In the 2016 regular season, the Liberty averaged 4.7 blocked shots per game. So 11 blocked shots in one game is a lovely number. Especially when one more Dallas field goal in regulation would have meant a Dallas victory.

Charles did an outstanding job defensively on Johnson in the second half and on help defense. Not an easy task for a player who played all but the last :11. Stokes was fantastic in the fourth and in OT as well. NY's offense is now averaging 81.6 ppg. Not a great number but certainly good given where we were earlier in the season. One would think that Piph's addition would improve that number a couple of ppg also.

I'm really excited right now just in terms of NY's personnel and offensive balance. Minnesota is a better team obviously. But I'm not sure I see a team otherwise with clearly superior offensive balance and overall depth, when taking into account that NY's defense should improve as their offensive efficiency goes up.

As an amusing aside, Liberty social media had a graphic up before Friday's game showing that Rebecca Allen leads the WNBA in block percentage. Even though she didn't get a block in the Dallas game, Bec is still officially the league leader as of this morning. Small sample size, but 8 blocks in 90 minutes is pretty good.

Now, I'm going to go off on a tangent. Tina Charles has a brief Father's Day tribute to her dad on Liberty social media. Liberty fans know Rawlston Charles as the guy who sits courtside dressed in fancy suits and a boater's hat. Tina mentions that he was a Calypso producer, so I looked him up. I found this interesting article about him:

FYI to Liberty fans: if you're on Facebook or are willing to be, the New York Liberty's Facebook page has value in my view because they post many player moves there, post lots of videos, and post columns by in-house sportswriter Lenn Robbins. The level of discussion among fans on the Facebook page isn't nearly as enlightening as it is here, so I usually avoid that. But I've seen many posts of interest, especially videos from Bill Laimbeer's postgame press conferences.

One warning: Facebook can be quite haphazard in terms of what one gets to see and when. The Laimbeer postgame press conference obviously was on Friday night, I believe it got posted on the Liberty page on Saturday (I might have that wrong), but it didn't turn up on my Facebook page till today (Sunday). Some posts never turn up on my page. I've never seen any logic to why certain things appear and others don't. So if you "like" the Liberty page, bear in mind that you may not see everything in a timely manner. Or at all.

I noticed late in the game the Dallas Wings wing players decided to drive into the paint and go to the rim. But they were doing it with the Liberty post players already established in the area and they ended up getting their shot blocked rather than drawing a foul.

yes and no...Rodgers filled the 2 Z remained at 3...what I think it showed is that Z needs to contribute as a score...can she do that with Prince...Rodgers has been inconsistent at best on OFFENSE...on D she has cranked it up so her Gtown regression on offense is excused...the Key is can Z keep it up offensively while still giving prince her points...Only time will tell...but addition by subtraction indicates bad attitude...I have seen little if any indication that is the case...to the contrary the team seems to have its togetherness back...and that is KEY...this team has plenty of talent...but they do not win on talent alone.

Quite a few Liberty players got off to bad starts this season. Prince and Vaughn certainly weren't the problem. If anything, there was "addition by subtraction" only in the sense that the team rallied together, knowing that the challenge ahead of them would be far more difficult without Prince and Vaughn.

More than anything, it looks like Laimbeer and the rest of the coaching staff said to Zellous about 100 times: "You've got to provide leadership and that includes putting up lots of points." And she obviously has.

I question the usefulness of these one-on-one sessions. There is so much open space to work with that won't be available in an actual 5x5 game. If you dribble around in the same way, a help defender will slide over and pick your pocket. You frequently see Sugar dribbling into traffic, and then she ends up hoisting a wild shot or forcing a pass through a crowd of defenders. That cross-over move which works in practice with T-Spoon offering token resistance may not cut it in real life. Or you see post players dribbling, dribbling, dribbling as they slowly back in, only to get stripped by a guard doubling down. That extra defender didn't exist in one-on-one practice. I'd prefer to see drills that simulate actual situations, like working in tight spaces with people swiping at you. Learn to make your move quickly, use good footwork, shield the ball with your body as you shoot.

Phoenix 10
Connecticut 8
Washington 8
San Antonio 7
Seattle 6
Atlanta 6
Minnesota 6
Indiana 5

But perhaps this rating system isn't fair, since it doesn't take into account how much each team's fans comment on individual game threads.

There's also this. If your team has won three recent championships, came close to winning another last season, and is currently undefeated, perhaps there isn't so much to say about them. Smile

Guess our team is just kind of boring Laughing
We don't make many trades or significant roster moves
Same old core of players, team gets along w/each other and they're all really likable.
Took 7 yrs to have a little shake up in the coaching staff
A happy, boring, engaged owner who rarely misses a game and sits courtside smiling from ear to ear through much of the game Laughing
Winning is really fun so when they lose we get knit picky, but we're in a place right now were we have to work REALLY hard to manufacture some drama Shocked

I've got to get to a game at the Garden some day Very Happy I've always enjoyed Lib fans loyalty, passion and sense of humor for their franchise in the good time and through all the tough times. In spite of your owner, players have come and gone but the bunch here have been true ride or die fans for your franchise. Hang in there and don't change your time is sure to come.

Russia was just eliminated in EuroBasket, so I wonder if we get Prince back by Friday or if Laimbeer waits to activate her until June 29 vs. Washington?

Wow, Russia lost to Greece. Piph 1-12 3pts in 30:31. I wonder if it was a tank job. Wink

My guess is that they activate Prince so she gets paid, but she'll probably sit out unless there's an emergency or the game is a blowout.

I'm feeling kind of bad for Burdick. I really like her hustle. Is it a done deal that Alston and Burdick are the cuts when Prince and Vaughn return?

I like the steady hand that L. Allen brings to the table for the Liberty so I'm pretty sure she is going to stay.

And I don't want to give up on Zahui B, but if someone offered us a 2nd round pick for Zahui B would I rather trade her for future consideration and keep Burdick? IDK I would be torn.

No. Nothing's been said who they're keeping & cutting when Vaughn & Prince return. We're all just assuming based on minutes played that they'll keep L. Allen & cut Burdick.

Also, with Russia & Czech Republic not qualifying for the World Championship next year, we get Prince & Vaughn for the full 2018 season.
