Apparently no Chiney because she's in NY covering the NBA draft? Hmm

Will this be CP's first road game against the Sparks since leaving? Could be emotional.

Will Sparks fans show love, or boo the "enemy"?

Wow! Shocked

How does THAT work that you can tell your boss in the middle of your season, "I need to take a day off to work this big gig at my other job"? Confused

https://espnpressroom.com/us/press-releases/2022/06/2022-nba-draft-presented-by-state-farm-to-include-star-studded-wall-to-wall-coverage-across-espn-abc-and-espn-radio/
Quote:
NBA Draft on ABC

For the second consecutive year, ABC will also broadcast the first round of the NBA Draft. SportsCenter’s Kevin Negandhi will return to host the ABC presentation alongside analysts Stephen A. Smith, Jalen Rose and Chiney Ogwumike with Monica McNutt reporting.

I'm sure she's getting paid way more than she would for the game. Does she get docked? I really don't care in the greater scheme, but has anything like this happened before?

Not that much different than international players taking a break to play for an international tournament, or players arriving late for other obligations.

Yeah i dont get the hate either. She is working on a career beyond her playing days. Good for her. If she asked permission or discussed it with her coach then it should be fine

It's not hate from me; just don't remember seeing a situation like this in the middle of our season. Maybe I wasn't paying attention before.

#HateHard Denied.

So far, nobody in this thread has made any comment at all, other than acknowledge that it's happening, and/or express confusion. How are you making the leap from that to hate? Were there not enough "YAS QUEEN!" replies, or something?

Time for Nneka and Big Momma to dunk on CP3. Maybe Brittney Sykes can join the high flying escapades herself with all her dynamic athleticism. Laughing

Doesn't another (coughlessercough) player already have a claim on the "Big Momma" nickname?

I don't concern myself with other members' nicknames for players: I only bother with my personal baptisms.

I'm not referring to what "other members" call her; I'm referring to what the player in question calls herself, and what other players call her.

I make up my own nicknames for players in the sports I follow. Sometimes I adapt nicknames from others, but I usually use my own.

It's 100% different. That basketball for basketball. This is treating basketball like a second class citizen. ALLLLLLL we hear from these players is how hard this league is to make and you have people like Chiney and Kristi Toliver who frankly, don't seem to care about it that much.

Give your roster spots to someone else.

... Okay, I guess there is some hate, after all.

That's cool, except in this case, you didn't make up your own, so much as you ganked somebody else's; it'd be like if you decided that you were going to call Sykes "Tip."

To be fair to the previous poster, I literally had to see the dude at halftime of their last game to realize that that was a dude talking. His voice is kinda in that midrange area.

Is this Allie lady giving an Oscar speech...? jeez....

Also, if Chicago wasn't missing bunnies, they'd be up by 28.

I don't know where LA's offense is....? Shocked

In this thread? Because EYE thought that we were specifically talking about her skipping the game in favor of her analyst gig, not having a larger discussion about "her work outside of basketball."
