WNBA news: Parker’s back, Agler benches stars

Candace Parker participated in her first practice today since last season. Of course the WNBA promptly posted a bunch of pics of the Sparks’ sweaty, smiling star player.

It cracks me up the way Parker refers to daughter Lailaa as “lil momma.”

In the meantime, it’s come out that Seattle Storm Coach Brian Agler benched his two stars, Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird, during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game at Staples Center in LA. I wondered why they weren’t in.
