We're not supposed to SUCK this bad, right? I mean that's why we had Wauters and Tina T brought in to replace LJ and Swin's production.  Actually looking at it right now on paper, it does look bad.

Sigh. So shall we tank all the way to get Griner? In the meantime I'm hoping the Lynx don't break the 9-0 record. :p  But maybe it's better than LA holding it. LOL.

I'm starting to think it's time to start Stricklen and sit Katie.  Stricklen seems to be playing well 14 pts tonight led the team didn't it?

The problem is that our paint defense is nonexistent. This is where we are missing LJ severely. That coupled with a poor shooting night from Sue doomed us.

Cheers,

Losing to San Antonio is really bad Sad Shocked dont know what is up with Birdy. Looks like playing double-duty (playmaking and being a big scorer for us) is breaking her up a bit Sad

How about starting Stricklen and cutting Katie. Early in her career Smith was a threat to score at any time. She has lost all of her offensive agressivness, other teams know she will only take jump shots. The way the Storm are playing now they are almost unwatchable. They remind me of the Bobcats. The game is over halfway through the first quarter. They aren't just losing, they are getting curb-stomped. The only hope this year is that Phoenix and Tulsa will stink worse. Agler has to shoulder his share of the blame. The team just does not seem motivated.

Hi everyone - sorry to be AWOL, but we've had some family stuff going on. 

I thought trading Swin, especially with no LJ, was a boneheaded move.  I wish I hadn't been right. Aside from the Tulsa game and the first three quarters of the home LA game, this is painful to watch.

I dont expect any changes to be made for the game against the Sky regarding the starting 5. Somebody has to handle Swin at the SF and i dont think Stricklen is ready for that burden lol.

Statistically Swin is doing about as well with the Sky as she had been with the Storm. She's not shooting out the lights or become a star player there.

The only thing that surprised me was that she actually had a pretty good season last year at least statistically. Did her shooting slack off at the end?

my memory, tho I have no statistics to support this, is that Swin had a fantastic first half of the season, and fully earned her All-Star start, but after the All-Star break seemed like a different player....I almost started thinking maybe she was playing hurt, like her back was hurting her (but I always think that about most players....)

That's right! She rocked the All-Star game but afterwards her shooting dropped off and she really struggled.

You guys are probably right.  I'm in search of a miracle which probably doesn't exist.  I remember being similarly baffled by Agler's complicated offensive schemes in 2008, but three years of watching people who knew it very well have spoiled me.
