Let’s just say Sims is better than AJones is or will be, and leave it at that.

The Sparks are 1-0 against the Lynx since making that trade though so so far the Sparks have appeared to have clearly won the trade.

A great rivalry: Sparks-Monarchs.

People forgot how good this rivalry was in its heyday.


You'd be hard pressed to find a tougher battle than DeMya Walker, Tanglea Smith, & Yo Griffith vs Leslie, Mwadi Mabika, and DMJ.


Yes it was a great rivalry. The 1999 playoffs, one game elimination!!! Sac up huge at the half, but the purple and gold smashed then in the second half. One of my favorite memories of all time. But as the game ended, we were chanting "HOUSTON HOUSTON HOUSTON!!" We wanted the Comets... LA has had alot of other teams call us rivals, but no rivalry has had the emotion and dislike that LA and Houston had. Hands down. LA vs Houston.

Of course I would be happy to see Sims stop doing that thing where she tries to dribble through 3 set defenders and snake her way into the lane. Watch her get the ball stripped way too many times doing that.


That is something that Simms has been guilty of for her entire WNBA career. Watching her with the Sparks, I sort of concluded that she has a peripheral vision problem. She has problems on both offense and defense in that area. As long as the players are in front of her she is fine, but when they are or come from the side of her she loses sight of them. This also would keep her from driving into the key and passing to open players who are not directly in front of her as sniMINAJ suggested the guards need to do. Sims brings some valuable skills to a team, but court vision is not one of those. Minn fans who expected her to replace Whalen will be sorely disappointed. She is a good passer but her court vision is what keeps her from being an elite point. Peripheral vision is not something that is correctable.


Interesting point about peripheral vision ...

A very common defensive drill (Shell) asks players to step up as close to the passing lane between the ball and their man as possible. The limiting factor is the peripheral vision required to see both at the same time while looking straight ahead. The difference from person to person can be dramatic -- some people can be almost on the direct line between ball and man and see both, while others have to be almost two steps back from that line.

And if you literally can't see someone, it's hard to pass them the ball.
