A lil shock, and I’m not talking about Tulsa

So Chamique Holdsclaw debuted for San Antonio tonight by lighting up the Sparks with 19 points, and keying their 88-81 win. I gotta give it up for the Claw. She shut the doubters up, at least for now.

Los Angeles is now 0-3. One fan on the Sparks message board has already posted that he wants his season ticket money back, six days before the home opener. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I’m surprised they’re starting off this slowly. And I’m a bit worried.

I’m looking forward to being able to see what the problem is in person next Friday.

On the flip side of the coin, the 3-0 Seattle Storm beat the defending champions Phoenix Mercury in overtime, 95-89. The Fever also needed an overtime to beat the Sky, 92-86.

It’s only week two of the season, I keep telling myself.
