LMAO! We subscribed to it too. The little lady wanted to watch some of the Athletes Unlimited hoops games and they came with the package. You're right though, $25 is an absolute steal.

Atlanta has been bad for too long. I like Renee so I hope she can turn things around here.

>Chicago Sky: James Wade looking around like the Fresh Prince
>'how come he don't want me?' meme. Ace, Quigs, Sloot gone.
>Kahleah is in full control.

KFC plus they got Courtney Williams who can flat out score. I like Emma Meeseman too. They got lots of holes to fill but I don't think they'll be completely awful.

I think their window has closed. It's too bad because they had a great squad. Bonner is one of my favorites to watch.

>Indiana Fever: Well, you got Ms. Boston...that's a start.
>Gonna be lean times, though.

They've been terrible for a loooong time. They gotta start making things happen.

LOL! I like CVS! I'mma start using that. This team is a juggernaut. Only thing that can stop them is bad chemistry. I got my eye on Han Xu too. Word on the street is that she actually grew another inch or 2.

EDD has legit game but she cannot stay healthy. She's on that Zion Williamson.

>Western Conference:
>Dallas Wings: Arike gets some help with Natash Howard coming
>in. Gonna be a long season, though. Diamond DeShileds and
>Lou Lopez Senechal set to miss major time with knee injuries.

I'm a big Diamnd DeShields fan but injuries are taking big chunks out of her career. Arike is still a killer,

They may be the only squad that can hang with NY. And I agree, the Dearica stuff is a real letdown. I don't think they'll let it affect them on the court though. We'll have to see.

>Los Angeles Sparks: Curt Miller left the Sun, where it seemed

>He damn well better be. Nneka, Chiney, the aforementioned

I think Miller is one of the better coaches in the league. I think he's gonna have LA looking up.

>Minnesota Lynx: Sylvia gone. SALUTE! Napheesa back for a

> Gonna be some lean times in Minny.

Yeah, they're in serious rebuild mode.

>Phoenix Mercury: BRITT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glad to see BG back. I keep thinking DT is gonna fall off but she keeps bringing it. old girl is timeless.

Co-sign this. I'm a Kia Nurse fan too (she looks like she could be Drake's sister). I hope she can rise above the injuries and show us something.
