Ex-Stanford player and current Sacramento player Nicole Powell is in her first WNBA All-Star game. With an injury to LA Sparks starter Lisa Leslie, Nicole was added to the team, although the coach still has to pick who starts. Maybe Lisa injured herself appearing on the ABC show The Superstars. No, it was previously taped? Okay. Read her funny blog about it here. And what was up with the bad basketball stategy on that show?
But we digress….
C and R was surprised that Candice Wiggins wasn’t tapped for the All Stars for the last month she had, but that is kinda the point, you have to play all year ’round like an all star. Even the great Candace Parker, last yeaers MVP and Rookie of the year didn’t make the all star team, what with missing most of the first half of the season on maternity leave. Two of our Candice’s Minnesota Lynx teammates went, though, Nicky Anosike and Charde Houston. With fewer WNBA teams and great talent, it is getting harder and harder to make the all star team.
Watch them all play Saturday, July 25th, 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
