I will believe it when I see her wearing a Wings uniform and pulling down a rebound for her squad.
Cambage sightings are equivalent to seeing Big Foot or Elvis.


Same. She could pull the "I'm tired and don't want to come over" bit again and needs rest for the 2018 Worlds.

The Shock/ Wings organization should have moved on without her YEARS ago. They should have shopped her around for trade bait and accepted the best offer. The didn't waste any time getting rid of AZB.


I can't imagine there is much of a market for her rights, and it costs them nothing to hold on to them.


If there's no market for her why should Dallas want to keep her? Wouldn't that make her dead weight?


You could always give that dead weight to the Storm Wink

No. If she doesn't show up, she doesn't count against their cap or their roster size in any way. They can hold those rights forever with them having no effect.

As a GM I would trade Cambage for Stewie because I would think I will get 15 years from Stewie and maybe 2 or 3 from Cambage at the most. Cambage may get you one championship but then I would have the impression she would cross it off her bucket list and that would be that. On the other hand I think Stewie could well lead her team to a championship and possibly more than one.

But then I'm just a basement dweller.

Cambage has very little trade value. Only way a team trades for her is if a signed contract is included.

If it went wrong again then it wont be because we had Stewart instead of Cambage.. I wonder if you would trade Maya for Cambage if you didnt have Fowles..

I saw Cambage a few weeks ago at Burning Man of all places. I asked her and she said she's definitely playing in Dallas next season. She also looked in great shape. She was a joy to chat with.

A 65 minute podcast with Liz Cambage and the host:
Club Angels: B-ball and Burning Man with Liz Cambage

She hadn't been to Burning Man yet. Was going to fly to LA, rent an RV (we) and go to an Eclipse festival in Portland and then Burning Man.

Cambage's durability is my biggest concern.She's never been able to stay injury free for an extended period of time.Playing in the WNBL/Commonwealth Games prior to the start of the WNBA season will be a good test.If she's healthy,I believe Cambage's intentions of joining dallas in 2018 will become a reality....Backing out at this point would destroy Cambage's credibility,and put Phillip's job security at risk.

I'm pretty sure Phillip's job doesn't hinge on Cambage coming over. I believe the organization likes her and she's qualified for the job.

Getting Cambage to play for Dallas is Phillips only job.She's otherwise useless to the wings franchise.Dallas would be better off hiring a defensive coach.

Quote:
Phillips, who spent nine years in the WNBA while also appearing in two Olympics with her native Australia, will work closely with the Wings basketball operations department in a number of capacities. This will include on-court player development, game planning, scouting and draft preparation. Additionally, she will assist the players with off-court development initiatives, serving as a liaison between the roster and staff in areas such as strength and conditioning, nutrition and sports psychology. The two-time WNBA Champion will also serve the organization in a business role, assisting with corporate partnership engagement, ticket sales initiatives and community involvement.


Here's her job description from the hiring news release. Sounds like she has a lot to do.

Okay.....I'm all for the bolded part as long as Phillips' job description is geared towards the entire team.But if she's helping the strength,conditioning,nutrition and sports psychology of just one player(Cambage),I'm going to be pissed off.

I think the whole team can learn from her work ethic, conditioning, defensive mentality..

I'd be surprised if Cambage plays Commonwealth Games, so really it may be just a WNBL season to get through.

Dallas needs a few things - a shooting coach, better on-ball and help defense, and time to gel (which should help defensively).

Dallas did great at getting to the line. In fact, Dallas made 744 free throws (out of 904 attempts, for 82.3 percent), while the Wings' opponents only attempted 752. Dallas scored 4.18 more points from the charity stripe than the opposition.

Where Dallas needs the shooting help is from the floor (just over 40 percent overall) and beyond the arc (227/711 for 31.9 percent).

Some of the biggest offenders were rookies (Gray, Davis) or second year players coming off of injury (Powers), so I am giving them a pass for now. But Christmas-Kelly needs to become more of a consistent scorer and a better shooter for Dallas to have any hope of improving - unless Powers simply takes over her spot. But overall, everyone could use more consistency from three, especially when launching so many.

Defensively, Dallas allowed opponents to shoot over 52 percent inside the arc, while the Wings shot 44.2 percent inside the three-point line.

So while Dallas outscored its opponents by 4.18 ppg from the line and 3.71 ppg from three (for a total of 7.89 ppg), the team was outscored by 10.47 points per game (on average) inside the arc. Having Courtney Paris miss 14 games did not help in that respect.

Overall, I like the direction of the franchise. The team won 5 more games in 2017 than 2016, even with the departure of Odyssey Sims, all of the new faces (5 rookies, plus Kayla Thornton), and two key players missing over one third of the season (Powers, Paris).

Some good points Cam. My question is - will these players be able to make these adjustments or improvements or are they stuck in the same bad habits that they have shown with their college coaches and now in the W?

One of the assistant coaches is Bridget Pettis.

When BPett was with the Mercury (during the offseason), she ran one-on-one, individualized training sessions out of a high school gym. I had a weekly session with her, as did Alex Chambers.

Even working with BPett for just one hour per week (and playing on my own whenever I could), I noticed a tremendous improvement in my free throw shooting, my release (including the form with my wrists, timing with my elevation, etc.).

If BPett can work with these young players, I have no doubt they will improve.

Torn ACL, Plaisance will decide whether to get surgery in Poland or somewhere else. Won't play for them this season (duh). They thank her for her play and work with the team and wish her the best in returning to the floor.

Very Good might I add
Quote:
The resonance score clearly showed the complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). We were consulted by Dr Jacek Jaroszewski, who confirmed the diagnosis. Theresa is waiting for surgery and rehabilitation. The surgery can be performed in Poland, but the final decision on the place of its performance is left to our athlete - said Tomasz Ruszkowski, trainer of biological regeneration CCC Polkowice.

Thank Google Translation Laughing

Obviously I was wrong, but in my head I had completely convinced myself that they had fired Fred Williams.

And within minutes of my post, I learn about BPett's retirement from coaching.
