Hamby playing the SF spot (a lot) can really disrupt opposing team's D. Slide Tamera Young to SG. Especially when Plum is shooting bricks.


So we’re going to act like T. Young doesn’t shoot bricks either? Laughing


Young and Young in the backcourt is not a good idea. Both are brickthrowers and it makes it easier to double or collapse the defense on Wilson amd Cambage

Unlike many of her peers, whose lives revolve around basketball, Cambage has walked away from the game before, and plans to do so again, this time after the 2020 W.N.B.A. season.

Cambage’s contract runs through 2019, but she said she planned to re-sign for 2020. She has begun looking at real estate in the city.

“I was so scared of living in Vegas, but it’s so chill. It’s so dope,” Cambage said, adding: “I go out and have delicious meals, and I’ve been to a couple of shows already. Took my mom to Celine Dion. I’m having a very wholesome and humble time living in Vegas so far, and it’s going to stay that way.”


Okay, that’s a little confusing. Why look at Las Vegas real estate if you’re only interested in playing through 2020?

And why pick up more real estate when you keep saying you’re struggling with your mortgage in Australia?

"now she’s playing on a starting five that is the envy of the league."

I will grant the writer that Cam, McBride, and Wilson are top quality players, but a case could be made that Plum and rookie Young are the worst pair of starting guards in the league. Jackie Young is shooting 30% for the season, and, in her last 6 games, 7-37. Plum's seasonal # is 35%, but over her last 8 games, she is 11-52 (and that includes a 6-9 game). Consider also, that these two guards get great looks b/c of the LV front court threats. Young plays some defense, but Plum must score b/c she gets lost quite often on defense.
I guess if enough other teams suffer major injuries (the Aces are 100% healthy), Lambeer's team could win the title, but count me as skeptical. The writer lauds the 9-5 record, but LV has fed off the weaker teams, getting several games where the opposition was missing key players. In games against the other winning teams (Wash and CT), the Aces have not been competitive

Appreciate the compliment, canadaball. But truth be told, I am a MUCH better at tennis and racquetball than basketball. Wink

Who do the Aces need at the point and two guard to already go along with an All World front-court?

First of all, a point guard who's been a point guard throughout their career! Not some converted pg their senior year in a cute experiment by their coaches..and second..guards that can knock down shots! Young is no shooter. Plum. Eh! It was cute in college...she'll get double digits against the bottom feeders like she has, but any decent WNBA team will shut her and Young down..like they have.

If the Aces get to the Finals, I dare you to put Plum or J. Young as your avatar. Laughing
