Some WNBA surprises

The big news of the day is that San Antonio signed Chamique Holdsclaw and waived Belinda Snell. Interesting. But will Holdsclaw really make an impact there?

Holdsclaw told pet that it “was a personal thing.”

Loree Moore is rehabbing her knee in Seattle, and is hanging around the Storm. Coach Brian Agler said he’s “open” to giving her another look when she’s healed.

Marion Jones is actually infusing energy into the flagging Shock team.

Week one power rankings look like this:

1. Mystics
2. Storm
3. Dream
4. Mercury
5. Sun
6. Liberty
7. Stars
8. Lynx
9. Sparks
10. Fever
11. Sky
12. Shock

What happened to Indiana?

Angel McCoughtry poured in 32 points to lead the Dream past Connecticut tonight, 97-82.

The Mystics beat the Liberty 77-61, behind Lindsey Harding’s 21 points.

That means both Atlanta and Washington are undefeated right now. I love it, and hope that lasts.

As for the non-surprises……

Tina Thompson is the lone player left from the WNBA’s first season. What an achievement.

A nice feature on the Dream’s Miller twins.
