Q and A with Tulsa Shock owner David Box.
Shock rookie Kayla Pedersen – one of the Cardinals who had a 66-home game winning streak during her college career – would love to continue that tradition.
Marie Ferdinand-Harris, now with the Phoenix Mercury, talks about her last three years playing for the LA Sparks as her new team comes to town to play them. She calls the LA years “the three lowest years of my whole WNBA career.” That’s a pretty strong statement. Did the reporter just not ask her why, or did she decline to comment? I need more info. Though I’m not surprised; she never seemed happy here. I guess the Mercury is where you go if things don’t work out with the Sparks.
Michael O’Brien, aka Slovydal, has some great commentary on what having local flavor means for a WNBA team. It’s something that I’ve written on before – that each team needs some franchise players who stay and form the team’s identity. The fan base grows from that. When star players are traded constantly, teams lose fans.
