Two favorite teams. One will win and one will lose.

Fred, you need to get Diggins-Smith under control! She's hogging the ball, dribbling around trying to score, gets double team and tied up, uses up most of the shot clock, then passes the ball to someone with a few seconds on the clock. They then have to put up a quick/bad shot, turn the ball over, or cause a shot clock violation. Their statistics look bad and Diggins looks good.

Diggins is trying to do too much. She's your best player but your biggest headache. Straighten her out and control her! When she distributes and shares the ball, the team flourishes. She has good players who can all score. Move the ball!

Laimbeer wouldn't put up with it.
Reeves wouldn't allow it.
Agler wouid bench her.
Chatman wouldn't allow it.
Taurasi would quickly straighten her ass out.
Miller would have Floppy sit on her.
VJ wouldn't put up with.
Toliver and Delle Donne would simply take the ball from her.
Stock wouldn't have a clue.
Sue Bird would have a fit and read her the riot act.
Cooper would sic Lorrie Ann on her.

No excuse for this Fred. Rolling Eyes

I think every coach in the WNBA would love to have Skylar on there team dream on . Give her some reliable options that can be trusted to make the right play then maybe she would be a bit more offering. The team doesnt seem to mind what she does so maybe we shouldn't start more issues on a team full of them ijs Wink

I think the team looks better with Diggins at the two spot when Chong is in the game. Not saying Chong should get a ton of minutes, but I prefer Diggins at the two spot.

San Antonio starting out real well. Currie and McBride scoring well. Dallas can't seem to get anything going.

Wings are the worst defense team in the league. Stars might actually win their first game today.

SA shot the ball too early there allowing Dallas to get that transition bucket. Hopefully SA can keep this up.

Hoping for breakthrough for Lady Plum
But so far hard to believe she is the all time leading scorer in NCAA history.

Akhator kinda reminds me of Asia Taylor. Except Taylor plays with more energy. And wasn't, y'know, the third overall pick.

Help me understand why Jefferson doesn't start? She is clearly the best player on the team and they're much better with her on the floor.

It took VJ 11 games to figure out what everyone knew in that Montgomery should be on the bench and Currie starting. So I wouldn't be surprised if she starts soon. Though I think her knee soreness was a factor.

Currie started early on and was doing well. I think she had a stretch where she was turnover happy that got her into trouble.

I wonder if their was a pre-signing agreement to start Plum, but no guarantee of minutes. That would explain a lot.

I guess technically she didn't start, but she put up starter stat line.


With VJ, it seems it's not who starts but who finishes (Jefferson, Currie).

More great late-game coaching by Williams...

Meanwhile VJ subs in Erika and the team promptly coughs up the lead.
