    They won the first four WNBA championships.

    Here's a short youtube showing the greatest moment in Comets history.



    Make that greatest moment in league history.

    The sign of things to come for the WNBA I'm afraid.

    The male dancer in the video is about as masculine as they come.

    If the league took over the team earlier this year, why wouldn't the league keep running it until this economy turns? Pretty dumb to expect buyers right now.

    The WNBA disbanding would be an awful step back. There's no doubt the women's college game has gotten immeasurably better in the decade or so that the domestic pro league has been running. There are little girls who begin playing basketball with dreams of playing in the WNBA Finals. I know the league isn't financially viable, and it will wilt the second the NBA takes its brand off of it. But it does serve a good purpose, even if most of us (myself included, really) don't care to watch it.

    The NBA has been absorbing the financial hit for 12 years now. The MLS has started to turn a profit during that time, but the WNBA still hasn't.

    As soon as David Stern decides to pull the plug, the WNBA will be no longer.

    The league won't die.

    Stern made his bed by ever agreeing to help out, now he's gotta lay in it.

    Pulling the plug instantly makes him an enormous sexist and public enemy number one for burly women of the world.

    There's just nothing interesting/exciting about the league AT ALL.


    Also, not that it really matters, but does Seattle get to keep their franchise despite the Sonics moving to OKC?
