The day before game two

Commentary and analysis of yesterday’s game one by……Lisa Leslie and Rick Mahorn? I’m glad they made up and all, but that combo still makes me blink.


The All-WNBA first and second teams were announced today:


Player Team Position Points

Lauren Jackson Seattle Storm Forward-Center 195
Tamika Catchings Indiana Fever Forward 191
Sylvia Fowles Chicago Sky Center 125
Cappie Pondexter New York Liberty Guard 193
Diana Taurasi Phoenix Mercury Guard 185


Player Team Position Points

Crystal Langhorne Washington Mystics Forward-Center 111
Angel McCoughtry Atlanta Dream Forward-Center 119
Tina Charles Connecticut Sun Center 86
Sue Bird Seattle Storm Guard 123
Katie Douglas Indiana Fever Guard 30

What a load of crap. Put McCoughtry and Charles on the first team and Fowles and Pondexter on the second and then it would be legit.


The Seattle Storm took time out today to host a fitness clinic at magical Key Arena for an elementary school. Now that’s my kinda field trip. Two more photos.


W Pres Donna Orender says, among other things, that league play will begin June 4 next year and maintain a later start.


Numerous coaches participated in the third annual 4Kay Golf Classic in Texas today. The event honors the late Kay Yow. I hope there’s a good feature story to read somewhere tomorrow.


Oregon assistant coach Kai Felton tweeted today that the scoreboard at the University’s new arena is the second biggest in the nation. Who has the biggest? ‘Cause that’s pretty dang big.

  1. Let me get this straight, one of the 3 finalist for league MVP should not be on first team WNBA along with LJ and Catch? You should back that opinion up with more than the statement "a load of crap". Lets compare to Angel, better PPG (slightly), better FG%, better 3P%, better FT%, more assist per game, less TOs per game. Lets look at rebounds since Angel is a forward and should be a lot better than shorter Cappie, Angel averages 4.9 rpg, Cappie only 4.5 rpg. Why is this a "a load of crap"? Please enlighten me!

  2. Anonymous, I was thinking about it last night after I logged off, and I would keep Pondexter. But definitely McCoughtry over Fowles. No disrespect to Big Syl, but Angel has been freakin ridiculous this season.
