Summer Hoops: 15 WNBA-to-NBA Comparisons

Candace Parker

Tamika Catchings & Indiana Unleash A New Era In The WNBA

Tamika Catchings

You may have turned on the T.V. in 1997 to see if professional women’s basketball could actually work in America. From then on, you might have found yourself scrolling through the channels forgetting that a league still existed.

You knew of Diana Taurasi. You knew of Candace Parker, but you probably characterized them as exceptions – not indicative of the level of play of the league as a whole. Even before that, every guy knew who Chamique Holdsclaw was. Read More »

Ray Allen Prepared To Lose The NBA Season

Ray Allen

With the NBA lockout raging on, Jesus Shuttlesworth has been getting a lot more pub than Ray Allen has around these parts. But that’s about to change. Allen recently said he’s prepared to give up the entire year if that what it means to get a fair deal done. He said it’s his responsibility to his team and to the league to see this thing through to the end. Not exactly what we’d like to hear, but at least he’s committed. Allen is one of the few players that probably wouldn’t miss a beat even if they lost a whole year. Dude is almost obsessed with keeping himself in tip-top shape. Read More »

The WNBA: Four Reasons To Care

Diana Taurasi

The WNBA season tip-off passed by like the 10-year anniversary of the release of Final Fantasy IX – unnoticed. Despite all those clever “Basketball is Basketball” commercials, hoops fans were too busy hating on LeBron and Dwyane Wade‘s celebratory antics in Game 2 to pay much mind to the June 3 season opener between the Los Angeles Sparks and the Minnesota Lynx.

But now that Dirk Nowitzki‘s game-winning drives and Jan Vesely‘s smooch are distant memories, hoops fans need something new to satisfy their basketball fix. Now I know the WNBA might not seem sexy, but I’ve got four reasons for you to follow this summer’s campaign. Read More »
