Asked Storm guard Tanisha Wright if she would still watch the WNBA playoffs now that Seattle has been bumped from the opening round for the fifth time in her five seasons as a pro.
“If my friends don’t make it, I’m boycotting,” she said.
Well, former Penn State teammate Kelly Mazzante is playing for the right to advance to the Western Conference finals against Los Angeles at 7 tonight on ESPN2. Wright is going to tune in for at least part of the game, admitting at today’s exit interview that the Game 3 loss on Sunday “still hurts.”
What about you? Do you care anymore? Maybe just until Los Angeles is knocked out, too, if Seattle fans are so lucky?
Just curious if the tide automatically swings to Indiana because of the local ties from Fever coach Lin Dunn, the Storm’s inaugural coach, to Spokane native Briann January, a rookie guard. Or to the defending champion Detroit because Shavonte Zellous put on a show here as a Pitt star in the NCAA tournament.
