The Lynx have brought in more league championships than any other team in Minnesota


Quote:
In 2010 the minnesota Lynx became a force to be reckoned with.


He's lucky that's a false statement as their missing the playoffs in 2010 was the reason they got Maya Moore.

I don't understand the headline. Is he saying that because they have had WNBA success they should be more popular than the male sports teams?

There are quite a few errors in the article. Anna Cruz does not play for Team USA, for one. For another, the University of Minnesota has had numerous national championships in hockey over the last 20+ years., with the Gopher Women's team being the most dominate team in the league since. like, ever. The NCAA has only has a women's championship since 2001, and the Gophers have won 6 of them and been the runner-up twice more (yes, out of 17 National Championship games, the Gophers have played in approximately half of them). This includes winning national championships 4 of the last five years, and coming in second in the remaining one. They also had an undefeated season, the only one in league history, as part of a 62 game winning streak (which is ridiculous in hockey were games can end in ties and a hot goaltender can single-handedly steal a game).

So, no, as good as the Lynx are they are not the most dominate team in the state.

But otherwise, I do agree with the sentiment!

Reeve as GM makes me a little nervous. She can be quite impulsive and it'd be wise if there is a balance of power in the decisions. Also, the point Cooper made is in play. You have to coach a player you may have negotiated down in contract negotiations.

I wonder what happened to Griffith? I'm guessing he's still the executive vice president? Reeve must have negotiated the extra title.

Ten Minnesota sports story lines to watch in 2018

http://www.startribune.com/ten-minnesota-sports-story-lines-to-watch-in-2018/467466233/?section=sports


Quote:
5. Lynx

Can the Lynx win back-to-back WNBA titles and get their fifth overall championship in eight years?

The Lynx have had odd-year magic working for them this decade, winning WNBA titles in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017.

That means they won an impressive four championships in seven seasons. It also means, though, that a repeat championship is the one thing that has eluded them. Minnesota's veteran core should be focused and more than capable of adding one (ring) for the thumb in 2018.

I feel like 2018 will be the final push for this current Lynx roster at another title. Does Perkins return(36 years old)?

Ages coming into 2018:
Brunson - 37
Whalen - 36
Perkins - 36
Augustus - 34
Fowles - 32
Montgomery - 31
Moore - 28
Howard - 26
Fagbenle - 25
Jones - 24
Zandalasini - 22
Average age - 30

Replacing Perkins with a younger guard off the bench. Do they attempt to bring back Ting?

People have been saying that for a few years now.

I don't think age is really her biggest issue but rather her salary as a lightly used backup is too high. Can she stomach about a $10K/mo salary cut? If she can, maybe she'll be back. Megdal doesn't have her on his free agent list because he presumes she is retiring. Either he mixed her up with Pierson who announced her retirement, or he's guessing she's retiring but I haven't seen anything official about it.

Looks like you got them mostly right. Brunson just turned 36 a few weeks ago, so you made her too old. Maya turns 29 during the season. Prime! Pierson retiring automatically makes them younger than last year, unless they get an old replacement. If Perkins leaves, that would make them relative pups.

Wouldn't mind Nurse (her stock is up though) or Wagner as a deep backup.

toad455 wrote:

I doubt it. They looked at her as more of a backup to the SF, and now they have Zandalasini for that role.

The Lynx apparently still have the rights to that one guard that went pregnant on them. Elhtova, or something like that. She seems to be doing well now so she could be a possibility. Anna Cruz might still be an option. They got options. Now it's about finding the perfect one.

Jones is big enough to play off the ball, so they could have both Montgomery and Jones as the main guard backups, and then either a draft pick or free agent in the 5th guard spot. Options.

How do you know she'd lure Torrens over? Maya Moore, and a bunch of other USA National Team, on the Lynx hasn't helped us lure Tina Charles yet. Smile

Lynx backcourt thin with loss of guard Renee Montgomery in free agency to the Atlanta Dream

http://www.startribune.com/lynx-backcourt-thin-with-loss-of-guard-renee-montgomery-in-free-agency-to-the-atlanta-dream/472171283/

Quote:
Montgomery's move to the Dream and the retirement of Jia Perkins means Lynx coach and General Manager Cheryl Reeve will need to replace her entire backup backcourt for the upcoming season, when Minnesota will try to repeat as league champions.


This would seem to make Perkins’ retirement official.

Quote:
Reeve said Montgomery's big personality and veteran savvy will be missed. Montgomery, a West Virginia native who owns a home in Atlanta, wanted to play in a city closer to her family.


I hope this doesn’t become a trend.

Quote:
"She can play both [guard] positions," Reeve said of Jones. "I'm excited for A.J. And she's excited. But I think she'll need help. Renee brought to the table a huge personality, a winners mentality. She knew what it took to win."


Quote:
Reeve would like to solve the team's need at guard before the draft.


Hmmm....

Quote:
That market might make re-signing free agent forward Natasha Howard more of a challenge.


WHAT?!

So the Lynx could afford Jia Perkins being their highest-paid player last year, but now that she's retired, they can't afford to keep anybody? 🤔

I hope that was just author’s opinion. Maybe he’s not good with math.
If Reeve can’t hold onto Howard, her first year at GM is starting to look like a disaster. I’ll keep the faith for now.

Chicago seems like a good choice for Howard. She'd start there and the PF spot without Breland now is wide open. Howard for Faulkner?

Well, I'm also convinced McCowan enters the draft and Chicago takes Mitchell & Williams. Faulkner for Howard seems like a solid deal.

PG: Vandersloot/Mitchell
SG: Quigley/Copper
SF: GWiliams/Hooper
PF: Howard/Bulgak
C: Dolson/Coates/Parker

If Perkins is announcing her retirement tomorrow, Lynx should have cap space for 12 players this season.

PG: Whalen/Jones/Cruz?
SG: Augustus/draft pick
SF: Moore/Zandalasini
PF: Brunson/Little/Jackson-Jones
C: Fowles/Fagbenle

My thoughts exactly , this is to fill the void for howard if she leaves & with the time thats passed its looking more and more likely she goes else where. Maybe Howard to NY and they cannot announce or finalize until the NY situation is complete .

If they're also signing Jackson-Jones, then I'm assuming Howard is out. They still need a guard(Pondexter? S. Johnson? Latta?).

That’s not my thoughts. Kizer is built to back up the center. Moreso filling that Pierson void. Howard is still needed to back up the PF/SF. Sign Howard and that’s a secure front line.

Now if they can get Shenise Johnson, who has combo guard skills, the Lynx would be about set. I don’t care if they have to go with 11 again. I could see them going cheaper with Cruz, but I’m not sure if she’s making herself available.

Hopefully the Kizer tip is true. Wiseone usually has the good scoop on Kizer.

Woo hoo! Either Reeve is on the same wavelength or she is listening Surprised

Still gotta secure Howard though...


If they're also signing Jackson-Jones, then I'm assuming Howard is out.


Toad, you nibble on every little rumor or speculation. You had Camille Little going to the Lynx. Same source as the TJJ rumor? Robert Pera? Where is he?

I wonder if they're thinking about bringing back Cruz and signing a FA guard? Or just drafting a guard with their pick?

PG: Whalen/Jones/Cruz or draft pick
SG: Augustus/free agent
SF: Moore/Zandalasini
PF: Brunson/Jackson-Jones
C: Fowles/Kizer/Fagbenle
