    Any WNBA fans in the RJ Universe? Impressions thus far this year? Favorite teams/players?

    I'm very impressed by Maya Moore and Tina Charles so far, along with Sue Bird holding it down with Lauren Jackson out of action. I'm hoping the All-Star Games can be "UConn Huskies" versus "Others"! icon_biggrin.gif

    Love Danielle, she hasn't let up for one minute since taking A&M all the way! No doubt, she's rookie of the year. Great support from the SASS crowd yesterday.

    I also love that Maya's in the perfect situation where she doesn't have to do EVERYTHING (not that she doesn't try sometimes lol) to win games, not with Whalen and Simone and Rebekkah and Taj and Wiggins out there... tons of talent! I can't believe how dominant the Lynx are rebounding with hardly anybody above 6'2" on the roster. As soon as Lauren Jackson gets back Minny vs. Seattle will be fun to watch, with SASS and Phoenix right on their tails.

    I'm surprised that there's actually a WNBA thread on RJ. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only WNBA fan on the planet, but I'm glad that it's growing in popularity. Tina Charles is probably the player that impressed me the most so far. She's probably going to win her first MVP as a 2nd year player whichh will be a big accomplishment for her. Maya is doing what I expected her to do. As of now she's basically a spot up shooter and she could score 20+ if she's having a on shooting night. I'm a big fan of Diana and the Mercury, but I haven't been that impressed with them. They should be top 2 in the west with the amount of talent they have.

    The WNBA is an abomination . . . is there anything uglier than "women" playing basketball?

    . . . do gay guys not have any taste at all these days?

    Tina's been incredible, she almost pulled off a huge victory in Seattle last night (anybody see Sue Bird in the clutch? wow!).

    I think Tina's right there in the MVP race along with Tamika Catchings, who may get the eventual edge as the longer-tenured vet with a team in first place.

    Charles doesn't have the level of supporting-star power that the Storm (Jackson, Bird, Cash) or the Lynx have, so that will work well in her favor so long as the Sun keep winning. The West teams have so much talent contributing I think their star players cancel each other out MVP-wise.

    Catchings has been stepping up her game even more without PG Briann January (ACL tear) around. Hers and Katie Douglas' scoring is way down but they've been successful sharing the ball and tightening up defensively.

    Lesbians already have the LPGA, do they really need another sports league?

    Softball never got the traction for TV coverage so they moved on.

    If unattractive misogynists like you still manage to get laid, then the answer is no.
