    Probably so, but if a maverick sort of owner (no, not Mark Cuban) is going to pay Taurasi and Sue Bird many times what the WNBA can, it's tough to blame her.

    Holdsclaw has some personal issues that she has to deal with. I'd like to see her make a come back. The league, not the Sparks, needs her presence.

    If that wasn't the definition of Holdsclaw coming out of UT, I don't know what is, sc.

    I always thought she came off sort of withdrawn, but that might be hindsight with her depression issues.

    It wasn't Playboy. It was an Australian art photography magazine with other members of the 2004 Australian Olympic teams.

    I concur with the notion that the league still lacks for that trancendant player.

    Not only has the league not yet seen its Jordan, it really hasn't seen its Magic or Bird or Dr. J or Wilt or even Mikan yet. And given where the game is in its arc of development, not really a surprise.

    Yeah. The NBA D-League. How much are they in the red, bleeding the Association dry?

    Dawn Staley sticks around, coaching Temple. ... She wasn't a bad player at all and yet her staying in the States didn't help to raise marketability or the profile of the WNBA.

    With the paltry salaries those women make, and with the TV contract they have with ESPN, somehow I doubt the league is hemorrhaging money. It might not make money, but it's probably also not hemorrhaging money.

    All of the teams lose money, but it's not a lot in the grand scheme of things. I read somewhere that it was around $500,000, which is, what, about what the guy on the end of the bench makes in a year. (This was a coupla years ago. Maybe have changed)
