Interest in WNBA tickets sees major increase in 2020
Bela Kirpalani (High Post Hoops)

Following a frenzied period of free agency that saw WNBA stars like Skylar Diggins-Smith, Kristi Toliver and Courtney Williams change teams, web traffic for tickets has skyrocketed, according to new data from VividSeats.

The Phoenix Mercury, which acquired Skylar Diggins-Smith in a blockbuster deal last month, has received an 837% increase in interested customers compared to this time last year.

I guess you are not that familiar with some of my other posts. My post was pure sarcasm. I think both DT and Bird should not be locks just because of their reputations and as of now really have not shown that they are good enough for the National team. Especially DT, who has really shown her age on the defensive end. I think on defense is where age is first noticed.


Oh, I see. My bad. Took it too literally. I agree age tells on defense. The changes on offense can be mitigated by changing to a less aggressive, spot up shooter type game.

837% is a VERY impressive number.

Let's all hope that this increase will not go to waste and things work out enough that there will be a WNBA season this year.

Okay, Im probably a little late and being a little lazy to search through the whole thread. Has anyone brought up the connection between Diggins-Smith and Griner? The college rivalry? They are way beyond that now (or at least you would think). I think it would be more of a running gag than anything serious. Those Notre Dame-Baylor days were kinda intense though. It will be interesting to see them play together.

And Skylar/Bria...

There has never been a player that tortured Uconn to the extent that Skylar Diggins-Smith did.

So much so that I couldn't even hate her, I just respected her for it. Laughing

Yes. Vivid memories of Diggins-Smith blocking Bria on two layup attempts in the 2013 final four. I don't think I will ever get the sound of Doris Burke screaming "twice on the pipes" out of my head.

Here's why the Mercury's addition of Skylar Diggins-Smith is bigger than basketball
