    I am stricken to the bone by losing Tully - not from a playing standpoint, as we have younger players ready to step up, but from a personal standpoint as she was about my favorite.

    I am concerned about the loss of Ebony, though I think Jessica Davenport is also ready to step up.

    Unfortunately I know little about our new players, so I am in wait-and-see mode.

    Let's have a great season!

    I might go to a game this year.

    You can pretty much sit where ever you want its dirt cheap and no one goes.

    I remember last year or whenever we got in for free thanks to Mr. Bird.

    That's why I think he'll be the next owner of both the Pacers and maybe the Fever if he wants to be responsible for 2 franchises.

    I'm pumped to say the least.

    Bri is probably my favorite player, after Tamika of course, so I'm ready to see her take over the reigns at point.

    I LOVE the addition of Tangela Smith. We won't miss Ebony at all with this addition.

    Don't know much about Pohlen. Think she'll get a lot of playing time in her rookie season? I'm more interested in seeing what Jene can do to be honest, especially after playing together with Bri overseas during the off-season.

    Pohlen has potential but I too am more interested to see how Jene has progressed. I'll miss Tully from a fan standpoint but we'll be fine as a team. I loved Ebony but she was pretty inconsistent - Tangela Smith with step up.

    Please, please, please let us see a little less Sutton-Brown this year.

    I'm ready to see Tamika get another shot at the ring she so richly deserves.

    As for Jeanette Pohlen and Jori Davis

    I think Pohlen will be good off the bench since she can play a couple of positions, I think she will only be able to play the 1 in very rare situations though, not quick with the ball, can get to the whole some, and her range is very good.


    Jori is a good scorer and she has that grit and determination, I will definitely like her energy boost off the bench.

    Welp I guess that is the end of Jori Davis, humm that was surprising...

    Haven't really seen much of Erin Play but is she as good as or does she have as much upside as Jasmine Thomas.

    Seems like the other two teams really cleaned up in this trade while Indy got the short end of the stick...

    We must really be trying to find a PG, January, Jene, Zellous, Pohlen, now Erin, that is almost half our roster spots right there...idk

    Jene and Zellous are definitely more two guard than anything else. We do need a backup for January...maybe even a replacement for her as well since she didn't show the growth in her second year that many of us expected.

    I think they are just stocking up for training camp so these ladies can fight it out. They can't all make the roster.

    Yeah they are more of 2's but short 2's that I thought the fever were trying to use more as a 1, but I guess I was just confused with what we gave up and what other teams got, I know that with less roster spots the 2nd and 3rd round pick aren't as valuable because of space but if we could have gotten that Jasmine Thomas package I would have been extremely happy, true PG with upside as well as a 1st rd pick... would have been nice

    Worst case scenario, we have Douglas run point to help take some pressure off Bri, if no backups do a good job.

    Margo Dydek died today from a heart attack. She left behind a husband and two very little children (I actually think she might have been pregnant) Very nice woman.

    She was part of my favorite sports picture of all time.

    Anyway, Erin Phillips was probably the crowd favorite in Connecticut. She's a fun little player, and can play both the 1 and the 2. She'll probably end up backing up Brianna.

    Abi Olajuwon and Jené Morris have been waived, so the roster is down to 12. I don't know much about Abi but think Jene has a lot of talent, I'm kind of disappointed we didn't stick with her for another season.

    I'm shocked that we waived Jene. We bailed on her way too soon.

    Well, last night's game was ... interesting.

    While I know it was preseason, the lineup of Catchings - Sutton-Brown - January - Douglas - Zellous makes the most sense as the starters and got a lot of minutes last night. Unfortunately, that lineup was doing little other than holding the ball to watch for a drive opportunity, then either passing to someone else to hold the ball and look for a drive opportunity or actually drive to the basket. Not what one would call a particularly effective offensive system.

    Katie moved off the ball much of the time but it often seemed more an attempt to distract the defense ("Look! A flock of turtles!") so the ballhandler could go off the dribble than any kind of play that would end up with an open shooter in a good position.

    The defense in the first half was pretty pitiful. It got better in the second half but there's no way the defense is going to bail the offense out enough to win games unless something changes on the scoring end.
