2012 WNBA Draft
Dec 1st, 2011 at 8:53am
 
The Sparks won first pick.  Why am I not surprised?

Griner isn't going until next year, though, right?

It was actually interesting that the four lottery picks ended up EXACTLY in reverse order of the number of balls in there. What are the odds? Poor ****ing Tulsa. Wink

I think the consensus is that this year's a pretty weak draft. There's pretty much Nneka Ogwumike and... the rest. LA doesn't need another PF either.

Griner is eligible this year, right? So the Sparks will be lobbying a lot to get Griner leave NCAA one year early.

Cheers,

I don't recall Griner taking a red-shirt year, so her class graduates next year (2013).  From what I remember, a US player isn't be draft-eligible unless she graduates early or until her class (determined when she was a freshman) graduates.

It is fact that Griner meets the current CBA age requirement of turning 22 years of age in the year of the draft making the graduation requirements a non-issue.  They don't have to turn 22 before the draft, just in the same year.   I DO NOT see her leaving early however.  She is #1 no matter what, but her market value for endorsements goes up with a couple of national titles, Olympic gold, and Player of the Year awards.

Just an ignorant but avid fan's random thoughts on the Storm.

Thank you Force 10, for keeping professional basketball here in Seattle.
