Now, nearly 20 years later, Ms. Beard, who will soon begin what she said will be her last season in the W.N.B.A., is preparing for life after basketball.

Beard is retiring, too! Ugh, I feel so old now. I remember watching the likes of Beard, Cash, Kara Lawson, etc. is college thinking they're the next great crop of WNBA players. Now they're all retiring. Only a matter of time before Bird, Taurasi, Pondexter, Whalen, Augustus, etc. announce their retirements.

So sad when players retire. Still wish Lisa was playing. Gonna enjoy one more season of AB, grateful for that. So happy she got her ring.

I wonder if Launceston was expecting her this season? The balance of power could be shifting on Tasmania. Just kidding, I'm not even sure Hobart can field an entire team right now.

Completely agree! I hated a few months ago when there was anxiety about Beard retiring. At least now we know in advance this will be her last season so we can really appreciate her this last year. One more ring for Beard! Smile

To answer my own question, yes they were. I assume that will just head home and not play in Tasmania beforehand. Now they are trying to decide if they want to sign someone before the season or wait a few months for WNBA camp cuts.
