I don't know about you, but I don't see the Stars winning at least 11 or 12 more games than the Sky this year. Very Happy

We need to start ramping up our game for the July 6 clash with Los Lynx.

Although Jantel has played well in spots, she has yet to really break out this season. I can stand to see Odyssey and Riquna integrated better with the veteran Sparks players, and Sydney needs to get her chances whenever possible. A quick release, accurate hand-eye coordination, and a six-foot height is a most viable combination on the perimeter. Syd should be an exciting perimeter presence as her overall game solidifies. If Odyssey and Riquna ever get going from downtown, the Sparks team will be hell on wheels with that dynamic front court. I thought Tiffany would see more time but the season is still young.

When you wish upon a star
Dreams will take you very far, yeah
When you wish upon a dream
Life ain't always what it seems, oh yeah
Once you see your light so clear
In the sky so very dear

You're a shining star, no matter who you are
Shining bright to see what you can truly be
That you can truly be

I want to see Diarra in action, so I'm hoping for a blowout.

Are you sure she is a real person, and not just Agler's idea of the perfect bench rookie bench player (i.e. invisible.)

She did actually get into the Sparks game last Friday, for about 20 seconds

Only the Dream has invisible players (e.g., Lori Ann). Razz

In a similar vein to my Meighan Simmons bewilderment in the other thread, just how bad (and for how long) does Erika have to be to lose her starting spot?

How many people really believe that Jefferson isn't starting because of "knee soreness"?

It's useless, gentlemen. There's no way we can out-tank this team. Gonna have to aim for 2nd.

She is still working her way back into rhythm. She scored 12 points with two treys a few games back on a mini-breakout. However, she is still integrating her game with the others, with some success too.

Do non-Sparks fans really want to see Riquna and Odyssey catch fire from beyond the arc on a regular basis?

Anything is possible with 104 balls. You have to be in game in order to win the prize.

Cause she's the overhyped/overated top pick.

I'd assume then the Lynx would've had to include Harrison (if not her, then Peters, who was also useful in 2015) in a Fowles trade.

Nah reshamda Grey, Dantas and the 2016 first round pick would have been enough!ol: Laughing

The Lynx wouldn't have had Gray because they got her from moving back 5 spots. That's what the Cruz trade was basically for.

Ok gotcha! I think I'm hearing stuff bc the Sparks needlessly like to stress me out! Confused Laughing

What on earth does LA do during half time?! Eat sandwiches? Fries? Thanksgiving dinner? Take naps? Get massages? Like, why do they come out with no energy in the second half? Good grief!

MoJeff and Izzy looked great!

I'm still confused as to why Plum is starting over Jefferson. Inquiring minds want to know...

Whatever reason Plum has been starting, this game provides a perfect excuse to elevate Moriah to where she belongs, and it would also serve to take the stress off Plum to ease her way into the pro game.

How dare ye question Lady Plum Evil or Very Mad lest we forget about Coach Klopp and what happened to him after he started Angel Goodrich over Diggins in her rookie year? (Granted she came into her own the next year, but that first season she was way in over her head) Twisted Evil Hint: axe axe axe. VJ doesn't want to fall as such

Have to give SAS credit, they may be 0-10 but they come and play hard every game. It's not that they don't try their best to win and just give up. I don't mind going to their games and watching them play but it has been a long hard journey. Laughing

Williams 12 point game was on May 30th. Not quite a few games back. Well she did score a field goal in the month of June, but other than that she has been missing everything. I don't know why they he doesn't give Weisner a shot. In this game Williams fouled Jefferson on a three point attempt in the last min of the game. Who does that?

IMO This is the team SA should start and play for 35 minutes a night (If winning is something they are interested in).

Jefferson, McBride, Currie, Harrison, Alexander

The Stars should have beat the Sky at home. But even if they were 1-9, it makes me think of the 2011 Tulsa Shock who started 1-9. They ended up 3-31 which I think was the worst record in WNBA history. The Stars added draftees Coffey and Plum, but I don't recall who they lost.
