    Default Ann Strother picked up in expantion

    A little Fever news...... http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...TS0403/8020605 Indiana Fever guard/forward Ann Strother was among 13 players selected today by the Atlanta Dream, as the WNBA’s newest franchise took its first step toward assembling its first roster.


    According to a news release, the roster also includes: Carla Thomas (Chicago Sky), Erika DeSouza (Connecticut Sun), Katie Feenstra (Detroit Shock), Roneeka Hodges (Houston Comets), LaToya Thomas (Los Angeles Sparks), Kristen Mann (Minnesota Lynx), Ann Wauters (New York Liberty), Jennifer Lacy (Phoenix Mercury), Kristin Haynie (Sacramento Monarchs), Chantelle Anderson (San Antonio Silver Stars), Betty Lennox (Seattle Storm) and Yelena Leuchanka (Washington Mystics).
    The Dream also received Indiana's 24th pick in the 2008 WNBA Draft, in exchange for agreeing not to select specific unprotected Fever players.

    Strother, a 6-3 shooting guard who averaged 2.3 points and 0.8 rebounds in 12 games for the Fever last season, has been with Indiana since 2007 .

    Oh, I do love it. It's just an overall great move. Great on-court and off-court presence.

    It will be her Locker Room presence that will make the difference here. Just a great pick up

    Yeah, she is a great leader. I think that her ability to lead will really help out with some of the younger girls on their team. She will be a great influence and role model.

    I agree and I dont think there had been a better locker room presence in the entire league. She will bring the spirit and the heart

    Yeah, and how important is that going to be for the younger kids on the team? To have that kind of veteran leadership? It will just play a huge role come playoff time.

    I recognize... She's going to bring spirit and heart into the locker room.

    Thats not the dispute, she is clearly gold, the real problem is the commentators

    She is so underrated that once you see what she can do with her team you will be floored

    This will be an overlooked move coming into the season, but when playoffs come around...people will truly see the effect she's had on the team.

    That is where her talents lie, in the playoffs...and in the lockerroom and in the huddles. She is a Coaches player and a Players Coach

    She definitely gives 110% every single game. Don't you think that attitude is going to rub off on all the other players?

    But how will this affect the pants party? THAT is the question!

    I'm not familiar with her views on pants. Is she pro pants? If so, I think that may be sending the wrong message to fans. I don't know if they're ready to hear something like that...yet...

    I just find it interesting that the Fever wouldn't protect her. I'm telling you guys, they know something we don't and it involves pants!

    Do you think that she was not quite "meshing" with Indiana's much publicized "no-pants" mentality. Perhaps TPTB within the Fever organization realized her views on pants, and felt as though they wouldn't mind cutting their losses with someone who shares similar, incongruent feelings.

    I think she will mesh well with everyone involved in this. Her feelings on pants have been kept to herself for the most part but she is supposed to be a more vocal leader this year. It will be a great pick up

    But does it matter if she's a vocal leader when she is leading by example? What happens when she shows up to practice one day with pants? She is not setting a good example. I don't know...my feelings are starting to change on her...
