  1. Hey Sue,

    Your blog link says he "will strive to KEEP the team in the black." The article says he aims to "MAKE the team financially viable for years to come." So am I interpreting you right that the team is not losing money now? Knowing how close to the vest the WNBA owners play it, it's hard to find confirmation about any team's financial status. Oh yeah, loved the part about what a difference it is to work with athletes that are college graduates. Great job in looking behind the scenes.

  2. You're right and that was probably a misappropriated analogy given my state of fatigue at the time. I didn't ask but I'm guessing the Sparks haven't been in the black recently.

    Thanks for the kind words. I thought Levy was very interesting, and he seems like a great choice for the job.
