From New York City, Pierson gives some hints as to what Tulsa ball is all about in her latest blog entry:
Well lets take it back for a moment, Tulsa training camp was the hardest preseason workout that I’ve ever been thru in my career. I mean at one point in 5 and a half days we had 11 practices. Talk about being prepared! 40 Minutes of Hell is no joke, Im sad that I didn’t get the opportunity to fully understand the system and enjoy wrecking havoc on other teams. While trying to figure out Coach Richardson’s system, we had a disagreement that was hard for both parties to recover from. Both sides tried to reconcile our differences but ultimately it was my decision to make a move and start over new somewhere. I felt as if I wasn’t able to contribute to the success of the team and that I was holding them back. Everyone knows that when you are unhappy with circumstances that are presented to you, it can make something you love to do something that you dread doing. That was the point that I was at and I expressed that to Coach Richardson and he made the trade. Im officially a New York Liberty!
So it wasn’t Richardson’s decision, it was Pierson’s. I thank Pierson for clearing that up.
