I know Ramus was always highly regarded as a trainer, but interesting to see her hired as Assistant GM. Bet that's a pretty uncommon career path (albeit one that Holley came pretty close to as well).

Anyone that actually knows and/or cares about the history of this board, knows that Maxwell is freaking awesome.

You're making me blush.

Very Happy

Quick question for folks. We posted an overseas update on our site yesterday, and are going to begin a series of postings of the Aces/Stars/Silver Stars/Starzz draft history this afternoon.

What other content from other teams do you guys like that we can "steal?"

Thanks in advance, and I look forward to seeing you all in Las Vegas or on the road.

The only thing that comes to mind as something where I use the official team sites (other than the roster and schedule pages), is the yearly Lynx draft preview. Big list of virtually every relevant player with links to their school profiles, more detailed info pages on the likely first rounders, mock drafts from people who may or may not know what they're talking about, and so on.

Other than that - and it seems ridiculously obvious - I think what people would really like is up to date information about what's going on with their team. Whether it's written reports about every day of camp or video interviews with the coaches about who's fit, or when players are going to arrive, or who's showing well while trying to make the team - just let people know what's going on. Too many teams fail on that basic level.

ETA: And welcome back to the league, by the way Smile.

San Antonio was really bad about not listing weights for rookies. They were the only team that had trouble doing so.

Can you steal the concept of the Shockapedia back from Detroit? Because that was SO COOL.

Thanks much!

I think our social media game is going to be pretty good. We just hired somebody to handle that aspect of things pretty much full time.

I loved putting that together. It bothers me that those things all disappear when a team ceases to exist. I doubt I can get to that at the moment though. Lots of other things to do at the moment.

I meant to add that I think you will see us start to do this closer to the draft.

You guys can be the leaders as far as full disclosure on contract terms. Let's start treating WNBA like a real sport.

So maybe Hamby & Jefferson to Seattle for the #5 pick? They take DeShields at #5 since she can be one of Bill's bad girls.

PG: Plum/#13 pick
SG: DeShields/Holmes
SF: McBride/Young/Montgomery
PF: Wilson/Dos Santos/Coffey
C: Harrison/Swords

Why would the Storm want Hamby?

Heh, yeah, that would take a lot of work.

But general question: are the Aces fully acknowledging and embracing their Utah and San Antonio history? Of the relocated franchises, San Antonio did the best job of acknowledging who they once were, but will that hold up in Vegas?

ok, why T. Young? What does she bring. Please oh please let her not be a starter. She can come in and defend once in awhile. 15 min/game max.

I will of course be rooting for the Liberty because well, Katie Smith.

But I'll also be rooting for the Aces now that they have signed Carolyn Swords!

If he starts Hamby and Young, I will look the other way...
