I enjoyed every minute of this series. I am sad that the WNBA season over, but I am elated that it ended with a championship in LA.
I know there have been some controversial calls. Coach Reeve went in on the officiating and she is right. It is not a good look for them to call tight games or miss calls. Refs have been deciding games all season. She was also right in saying the players deserve better. I hope something is done to improve it.
Candace Parker mentioned the journey through this season. She dedicated the championship to the Pat Summit. Brian Angler was what this team needed to get over the hump. He played “Rocky Top” for her before the press conference, I was nearly brought to tears. I am glad she won the championship and was the Finals MVP. She was snubbed from the All-WNBA teams and the Olympic team. How sway? She’s one of the best and I am glad she was able to stick it to all of her critics.
I appreciate the new playoff format for giving us the best possible matchup. I was able to experience being a season ticket holder for the first time and it did not compare to the energy and emotion that I felt and that exuded from the television during these finals.
Again congrats to LA for closing the deal against a very good Minnesota Lynx team.
Sorry Seattle fans, Lauren Jackson will miss the 2014 WNBA season.
Jackson had surgery on her right knee and left Achilles on Monday. She hopes to finish her career in Seattle for the 2015 season.
“I’m going to push really hard to do that. Thank you to the fans for the support you have given me on social media. Your words mean a lot to me. Good luck to the team and the fans for a great season.” Jackson stated.
This just sucks. I was so looking forward to her and Sue Bird returning.
With Tina Thompson now retired who do you all think the Storm should acquire to fill that void?
