McCoughtry has to try to make things happen with a lesser team. There are less excuses for Parker's turnovers.

I wouldn't say that's Parker's biggest weakness though. Defense. I've seen Alyssa Thomas go at her repeatedly without fear.

This is partially true...

Yes,atlanta depends on Angel's offense more than LA does with Parker.However,Angel does more shooting than passing.She also makes questionable decisions at times with the basketball.Parker on the other hand has finished top 3 in assist the last two seasons.Lavender & Ogwumike are the primary beneficiaries of Parkers' passing.If Candace isn't creating offense for her teammates it puts added pressure on Ogwumike,Lavender and Toliver to create their own shots.

Side note:

Parker was magnificent in last years game 3 versus minnesota:

28p/13r/4a/3s/2/2t/9-19fg/8-8ft/2-6 3ptfg

She deserves more credit for her big game performances.

I'm not sure why you're fixiated on McCoughtry vs Parker. Not only does McCoughtry have try to do more with a lesser team, they no longer play the same position. McCoughtry is an SF and Parker plays in the post and which position is up for debate, I say center.

Let's compare stats when they're playing for the same team, like say the Olympics. Oops, I guess you'll have to dig back to 2012.

Better yet, let's just stop comparing them and accept any analysis that there are areas that Parker could improve, and the hotdog turnovers is one of them. The hotdogging does make the game more fun though. Either she has success with it and it's considered a great play, or more likely she fails with it and looks silly, which is fun for the opposing team fans.

I'm not fixated on Mccoughtry vs Parker....

1.I only introduced Angels name into the conversation to point out pilight's bias.He mentions Parkers 2.9 turnovers per game,yet,he never talks about Angel's 2.9 TO's per game or high turnover history.

2.My second comment comparing Mccoughtry/Parker was my response to your previous post.

Jeez......Rebkell is filled with a bunch of overly sensitive.....forget it.

Over-sensitive might be those that are crying about constructive criticism towards Parker. It's not bashing.

This thread is about the Sparks. Why would plight talk about McCoughtry?

It was pretty smart of her to let someone else take over her team. Worked out well for her.

I have never understood all this crazy animosity towards CP3. The way some posters act you would think she was going around slapping old ladies or something. Clearly, there is only one solution. CP3 & Co. will have to win four straight more championships to trounce the Comets' record and forever establish herself as the WNBA GOAT. That ought to really make the CP3 naysayers' heads explode! Laughing

Indeed, it is very odd. Like maybe she has been kicking kittens or talking about people's mamas Confused She definitely gets more than her fair share of criticism and I'm not saying that none of it is justified because there are always things and ways in which a player can improve. However, some of the comments in WBB fan communities are as if she is the only person who does or doesn't do certain things. It is baffling, but as coach said, she is the most critiqued, Nneka said she's misunderstood and both are incredibly happy for her. To that I say, Ditto.

In team news, Riquna is playing in Turkey! https://twitter.com/OsmaniyeGSK/status/802209737945268224

I have had the opportunity to meet CP3 several times. Each time she was very friendly, and made a great impression on my wife and I. I am happy she is a Spark, and got a championship. I hope she plays here for many years to come.

I'm not saying Parker isn't a nice person, but we need to stop equating the "I met [ player] one or two times...." and judge who they are by that. Anyone can be nice just meeting with fans just a few times. And someone also could be having a bad day at a time you meet someone. Meeting someone for an autograph isn't knowing how someone really is.

Agreed! However, all the silly negative speculations of her naysayers regarding how she supposedly treats her teammates or her naysayers foolish attempts to read into her facial expressions are equally if not even worse affairs. Candace appears to be much more private than most superstar players so I just do not see where all the negativity derives from.

I didn't "equate" anything. I said I met her several times and each time she was nice. I said I am happy she won a championship, and I hope she remains a Spark. I am not sure what compelled you to comment on that. In a thread that is often critical of Parker, I am simply saying that in the times I have met her she was nice.

Atleast the posters bashing Cp on here don't work for Espn. I still don't understand how Lobo can say that a foul should have been called on Parker after Mone fell on her.

Parker rolled into Augustus, taking out her legs. How do you remember it?

Parker didn't take out Mone's legs she fell over Cp going after a loose ball. I don't think a foul should have been call on Mone even though a few Sparks were called for the same if not similar fouls but I don't see how Lobo can said a foul should have been on Cp when she didn't cause both Fowles and Mone to fall down.The play Im talking about happened in game 4 at the beginning of the game.

Alana coming back for encore championship attempt? Why the hell not? I expect Kristi to resign and, hopefully, spend more time at SG than at PG. Chelsea needs to establish herself at the point. Even though Kristi did not begin well as a PG with the Sparks, she has evolved pretty rapidly into a very efficient handler with relatively few TO's.
