Confusion

I’m confused by a couple of stories from today.

For Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson, a complicated match:

“Plus, Glory is straight,” Ms. Griner said. “That was another reason why I thought this could end really bad.”…..

Ms. Johnson said she wasn’t sure what was happening, but that was O.K. She was not attracted to women, but she realized she was attracted to Ms. Griner.

“I’m not a lesbian,” Ms. Johnson said. “But Brittney is different.”

???

“It was weird, but it was so comfortable it didn’t feel like it was wrong,” Ms. Johnson said. “But I didn’t know how I was going to tell my family and my friends.”

When she did tell them, Ms. Johnson said they didn’t believe her. A week later her parents and siblings came to visit her in Tulsa, while Ms. Griner was also visiting.

“When they actually met Brittney for the first time, they were like, ‘Oh, we get it now,’ ” Ms. Johnson said. “They were extremely welcoming.”……

The couple’s fathers chose not to attend the wedding…….

The couple, who will use the surname Johnson-Griner, wrote their own vows.

Lots to digest there.

Then there’s this:

Isiah Thomas has filed for partial ownership of the New York Liberty.

Still no statement from the WNBA regarding domestic violence, punishments for Griner and Johnson, or whether or not the Board of Governors will approve Thomas’ hire.

And has Sylvia Fowles found a team yet?

Let’s recap who is not playing for all or part of the 2015 WNBA season:

Diana Taurasi

Penny Taylor

Candace Parker

Liz Cambage

Shavonte Zellous

Natalie Achonwa

Janel McCarville

I’ve said it before: interesting times in the WNBA right now.
