Meesseman will most likely start at the 5 and EDD at the 4

she's going to get killed by the likes of Fowles, Griner, Williams, Boyette, Vaughn, etc. I thought Emma didn't like the physical aspect of the WNBA.

According to to Mo Currie's twitter, @womensbball247 (I have no idea how the Stars/league let her have it) she's claiming the Mystics are targeting another "big name free agent". Larkins, most likely. Possibly Toliver, but I doubt she'd leave LA.


It's a shared handle, if I recall correctly.

I don't know if I'd categorize Erlana Larkins as a big name free agent, but heaven knows Mike Thibault knows how to use physical, somewhat undersized posts.

Someone told me it was Mo, but it def makes sense if it's shared, because sometimes the grammar and overall language is different. You're right about Larkins not being "big name", but she's one of the better UFAs. I could see Thibault going after her

The posts on the website is shared with Rebkell's Awhom111. But the twitter feed is Mo.


I can confirm that it's hers only and not shared. If she needed plausible deniability because somebody complained, I'd take the bullet though. All of the tweets tend to happen while I'm at work or sleeping since apparently those are the best times in the Korean schedule.

Not surprised by either of those Indiana signings. Both are players the Sky had in training camp in years past. I'm guessing Pokey still has her fair share of input though she's no longer listed as a GM.

Thanks, Michelle. Looks like Currie jumped to conclusions on Essence Carson.

I'm liking the offer sheet details. I wish they showed that for every offer sheet signed.

I like the move by Coach T offering a contract to RFA Krystal Thomas. Keeping my fingers crossed that Seattle doesn't match the offer and come this time Tuesday night (2/07/17) Krystal will be a Mystics player.

Nooo!!!

One of the benefits of contributing to the site is that I get to see some stuff that Mo hasn't published yet which may or may not be true or coming down the pipeline.

Kayla Pedersen should be mad. She takes a break from the league for a season and wnba.com forgets how to spell her name.

That scene happened early in Season Five of Happy Days. The show lasted 11 seasons, so the Shark Jump was almost exactly in the middle of its run.

Interesting, because within the television industry the phrase "jump the shark" has come to mean a fading show that is so desperate that they have to resort to gimmicks. Personally, I've never watched a single episode of Happy Days. I'm just familiar with the term as it is now commonly used. I suppose "jump the shark" could also mean artistically dead rather than actual cancellation.

That is closer to what it means. Really, it is just the turning point. The point where a once great show has gone to the absurd and is never quite the same.

Yeah, like The Walking Dead. Jumped the a couple times last season. The Big Bang Theory at least 2 seasons ago.

I don't watch TWD, so I don't know, but the Office and the Big Bang Theory never actually Jumped the Shark.

Both of them fell of in quality quite substantially, but they never really introduced anything that significantly changed the show enough to really qualify. Most of the time when there is a "jump the shark moment" we can point to that specific event and say, "Yep, that was it. They are out of ideas."

For instance, when Married With Children introduced Seven, saw him flop with the fans, and then wrote him out of the series without mention (until the next season when they lampshaded it).

This happened last year as well sometimes. I think it's something to do with the website itself and how it generates the page. I have no idea how a company could allow such data corruption but I found the need to do daily checks of the transaction page lest an entry disappear the following day when the page got "updated."

Gatling over Hollivay in Atlanta. Ibekwe still trying to make a team. Warley just a training camp body. Weisner has a chance. Cannon & Turner ain't making it in Phoenix. Greene only makes it in Seattle if Bishop doesn't show. Whitcomb stands a solid chance as does Taylor in Washington.

Tolo isnt coming over and pretty big chance that Wauters is done aswell. So the Sparks are still looking for a backup center so Warley maybe has a chance

Knowing from her time with New York, Warley provides excellent team energy & chemistry. Should could easily replace Wauters as that veteran post that just rides the bench.

PG: Gray/#4 pick
SG: Beard/Williams
SF: Carson/Dabovic
PF: Ogwumike/Jackson-Jones
C: Parker/Lavender/Warley

Happy Ify is getting another look. Don't know what she's been up to overseas but she's a tweener I thought might be able to make it.

I think Ibekwe will make the team if she can prove she is fast enough to defend and shoots well enough to play the SF spot.

So the same reasons she hasn't made it for the last six years? Good luck to her, but the history of tweeners who don't make it coming back later and being successful is not good.

But hey, people who play one position at one end of the floor and a different one at the other could work in LA at the moment, considering everything revolves around Parker and Ogwumike. Plus the three or four players at the end of the bench never play anyway under Agler, so maybe all you need to do is be nice and practice well. That could be anybody.

I'm expecting three to four more big trades before the season starts.If we make the assumption that chicago will draft Plum/Deshields at #2,then a trade is very probable/imminent.Chicago has too much depth in the backcourt to bring in another 20 minute per game guard.

Trade bait:

Faulkner
Vandersloot
Quigley
Pondexter
Dupree
Mcbride
Sims
Howard
R.Williams
Achonwa
Bone
Dolson
Langhorne
Peters
Stokes
Rodgers

Possiblre trade destinations:
Dolson to NY
Dolson or Dal for Christmas
Achonwa to chi for Young
Mcbride to LA for #4 pick
Peters to Dal for #10 & 11 picks
Bone to chi for Quigley
Howard to chi for Faulkner & Parker
R.Williams to sea for O'Hea
Stokes & Rodgers to dal for Sims & Christmas

I would do both of these without even thinking twice.

Bone for Quigley is interesting. I don't think Bone is useless like others, but we already have two centers. Unless you're proposing this trade as scenario after Dolson is traded?

If we're just dumping Faulkner like that, we can do a hell of a lot better than Natasha Howard, especially if Parker is also in the deal.

btw, DO NOT WANT BONE. DO NOT WANT.

Maybe I'm overvaluing Howard, assuming zune is referring to Natasha Howard that plays for the Lynx. Parker, in a sense is a throw away but she's got some tools. I think her and Faulkner are about equal, I'd give the edge to Howard on potential though..

Mavcarter and Sigur3 mentioned one player they both would like to see wearing a Sky uniform and that is Jonquel Jones. How about a straight up trade of Dolson for Jones? Connecticut has a lot of power forwards and no center.

Why want Howard when you already have Breland. You want them to split the minutes at PF? What about Dolson?

Howard has great upside.She just needs more PT.6.7p/3.6r/0.8a/0.7b/57%fg in only 14.6 minutes is damn good.Howard dropped 24 pts on the us national team.Sometimes getting drafted by a championship contending team is the worst thing that can happen to a young player.Howard does not have the luxury of playing through her mistakes(e.g.,E.Meeseman,G.Johnson,C.Ogwumike,M.Jefferson).The lack of rope Reeve gave Howard in gm 5 of the finals played a factor in minny not winning the championship.


Breland can play backup 4/5,unless she gets traded for a SF.

Boyette:26-28 minutes
Howard:24-26 minutes
Breland:22-24 minutes

Faulkner averaged 8 ppg and almost 5 apg in 19 minutes last season. I wouldn't trade her unless I got a nice piece in return. She's good insurance for when Sloot is injured.
