Don't say "diamonds", or the Sky will end up with DeShields instead of Wilson or Mitchell. Very Happy

They need Mitchell as the 5th guard? People couldn't handle Plum being the 3rd guard.

How did they Sky manage to end up with too many guards and too many posts and still suck?

I continue to say that as long as T. Young is their starting SF... But I guess if they get a top 3 draft pick enough times in a row, maybe they can still succeed.

You mean like if you were to draft Fowles, and then Toliver, and then Prince, and then Slooty, and then trade your #2 pick for Cash & Willingham, and then draft Delle Donne, and then draft TS% leader Gatling at #10, get a bargain with Boyette at #10, and trade for a #2 pick that you used on Coates that you too could be as good as Chicago?

You missed Candace Dupre and ROY Arminti Herrington. Does kind of show that playing the lottery is not necessarily proven to work every time.

At All , they should have about 2 titles with the players that have come and go through this organization. Sad franchise for sure

i picked SAS to win because they just gave away their best player (next to Jefferson) over the last two years and couldn't be in a worse predicament and the morale has to be less than awful. Why not? This is when teams surprise.

How they are going to do it? Hell if I know. Laughing

They didn't start Plum, but she's already over 5 minutes in the first quarter.

22-22 end of Q1

I just checked in here. San Antonio's offense actually looks decent. The defense not so much.

They started de Souza but looks like they've shifted focus to the three guard system. Plum with more pts than Jefferson? The Earth may get knocked off it's axis.

Am i wrong for beginning to believe that this just might possibly be a personal thing between VJ & Lady Plum ? LP has played a decent game and has still not played a minute in the 3rd Qtr ?

Not too sure about that. You could say the same thing about Coffey.
She seems to be going with whatever's working at the time. Hamby is hot now too.

This game is going fast. Only 15 fouls called, compared to 37 in the LAS-ATL game.

Mo Jeff turns it over in which turns into 2 free throws for T. Young and VJ yanks plum instead? Msybe VJ is intentionally trying to get fired by ASB?

84-82 SAN with 1:09 left, SAN possession. Let's see if SAn will choke this away. They've looked better tonight.

I feel for McBride on that call. That wasn't even a real shooting motion.

It's a good thing it's a Friday night, as I'm guessing Rock Hard & the other Sky fans here are going to be celebrating all night in "tanksgiving" over the result of this game!

No, I think it's because Sophie Brunner is a difference maker.

To prove that's true, we need to see the Lynx win by at least double digits. Smile

VJ finally making sensible substitutions and the Stars finally getting a win. I bet the Mercury are wishing they kept Harrison. Hope the 2 players they got for Currie do as well as Harrison. Plum not too bad tonight.

San Antonio isn't as bad as their record would suggest.Teams are only shooting 44% fg against them,which is average.The stars problems are youth,inexperience(VJ included),chemistry,inconsistent rotations,untimely substitutions,and closing out basketball games.They've blown 4 or 5 4th quarter leads.These problems are all fixable.All SA needs is time to develop,and 1 more high draft pick.

Clearly another case of addition by subtraction. Laughing Mercury will probably lose tonight proving the inverse. Currie is a cancer. Well more likely a Pisces.
