the regular season wraps up today, been enjoying the hell out of the lv aces whom i have adopted as my team due to former san antonio and becky hammon reasons

just watched the minny-ct game which was sylvia fowles last game. her and sue bird retiring, taurasi has gotta be close behind feels like the end of an era. seatlle still has stewart and loyd (and now tina charles) so i think theyll be fine, but minny just missed the offs for the first time in like 10 or 11 years.

you can check the standings and see that theres only 5 legit title contenders, but it really feels tight between them all. i like vegas this year to get their first title if hamby is healthy bc they have probably the best 5-player lineup with gray-plum-young-hamby-wilson. storm, mystics, sky all have recent championship experience to rely on tho.

also chelsea gray is my favorite player in the whole w. shes got derozan's 1-on-1 midrange game and lamelo's passing vision. just a joy to watch when she has the ball in her hands.

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Sunday, 14 August 2022 20:44 (one month ago) link

also she does shit like this

i think itll be chalk in the first round, but based on nothing other than the anecdotal evidence of watching a couple of their games, i like the way connecticut did things and i think theyll get to the finals past chicago. aces ftw.

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Wednesday, 17 August 2022 23:54 (one month ago) link

i would tend to agree that the aces look dominant this season

i went up to fort worth last month and saw the wings play the sky. chicago is very good too. it was a great game.

super excited for the playoffs

sknybrg, Thursday, 18 August 2022 00:08 (one month ago) link

liberty gonna fuck around and beat the sky?

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 18 August 2022 00:55 (one month ago) link

liberty had their chance? some bad fouls late but there’s still time

sknybrg, Thursday, 18 August 2022 01:47 (one month ago) link

not rly sure what theyre doing offensively rn. the high pick with dolson and ionescu was doing something earlier. i like dolson as a pick n pop stretch 5.

there it is, nice

sknybrg, Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:02 (one month ago) link

they all looked gassed af in the last few minutes, sabrina threw up a middy with like no lift in her legs and she still got it to fall bc shes the clutch god

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:03 (one month ago) link

yeah, sabrina’s ridiculous. this game is a nice start to the ‘offs.

i can’t imagine the mercury can hang with the aces if taurasi doesn’t play. i think the aces steamroll them, regardless

sknybrg, Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:08 (one month ago) link

theyre scrapping early

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:19 (one month ago) link

chelsea gray's pickpocket game is elite

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:28 (one month ago) link

phx giving a'ja a lot of problems but the aces are so deep with offensive talent that it might not matter

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 18 August 2022 02:35 (one month ago) link

god when the aces get rolling they pile it on

‘offs day 2. not sure what to expect from either game. i would expect the top seeds to advance ultimately, but after last night’s intrigue, i’m open to more chaos.

the sun have looked solid recently

holy shit, dallas wings player just heaved it from well beyond halfcourt at the 1Q buzzer and nailed it

sitting down for mystics v storm. q1 nice so far.

sknybrg, Friday, 19 August 2022 02:31 (one month ago) link

there are sometimes where im like why dont the storm just dump it into stewart every time like she's 2000 era shaq

stewart is wrecking it and so is delle donne. i like this series. this is the game i was hoping for

lloyd buried them. mystics had their chance but that last minute turnover really sealed it. good game

sknybrg, Friday, 19 August 2022 04:02 (one month ago) link

delle donne's midrange game is so good, like carmelo but without holding the ball so long

symsymsym, Friday, 19 August 2022 05:58 (one month ago) link

storm could not stop her at all, they must feel great escaping with the win. very enjoyable game

lets see if the liberty can pull off the series upset today and---

i was at a soccer game last night so missed the chelsea gray show, but aces are cooking

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Sunday, 21 August 2022 16:39 (one month ago) link

i didnt have much hope that the bottom 3 seeds would do much, but dallas is making connecticut sweat right now, huge first half lead

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Sunday, 21 August 2022 16:45 (one month ago) link

what a quarter from the sun. 80% from the floor, wow. aces taking and missing a lot of jumpers

if aces can narrow this to single digits by half, they might have a shot tonight

couple hours away! really intrigued to see how hammon counteracts the D adjustments from game 3. putting bonner on gray really limited her ability to get to her spots, not to mention the hard double team trap they were doing to force turnovers. gotta think more a'ja pick n rolls to generate switches or space has to be more frequent this afternoon.

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Sunday, 18 September 2022 20:31 (two weeks ago) link

aces a lot more active defensively, forcing the issue rather than reacting to the sun's scheme
