"Okay. Here's the article by michelle voelpel police in in the in the show notes for you but this is about dawn staley when asked for the olympics if she would consider a second go round as usa women's basketball head coach dawn. Staley said jokingly that she needed to win in tokyo before even thinking about that now. The team usa has secured its seventh consecutive olympic gold medal. Staley has answered. Staley had an answer. Sunday i'm done. Staley smiled as she said it. In the americans post game news conference and was asked by. Us guard diana terachi. Does that feel good on guard. Sue bird diana terachi. One fifth olympic gold medal also confirmed that this will be here last olympics but she had said that even before going to tokyo to rossio on the other hand said you in paris which is the site of the twenty twenty four olympics though it was unclear whether she was joking. Or not okay. I played the clips in the first block in a black for you from sue. Bird dawn staley. Oh gosh i'm really like emotional about the dawn staley news but this is what i wanted to bring to your attention because i unclear about this as well And here's i'm just gonna read the last paragraph of this staley's departure means there will be all new leadership for the us women's basketball program by the next major competition. The twenty twenty two world cup national team director. Carol callan who has overseen the program since ninety nineteen ninety-five announced in july that she was stepping down from that role although she will still continue as prevot president of fiba americas so now carol callan is involved with fiba and it was feeble ultimately. If i'm not mistaken that said no to neka agoo mckay. I don't know if it was to be america's so here's the article former wnba mvp neck. Ogle mckay was notified by fiba that her petition to play for her native nigeria in the upcoming tokyo olympics was denied due to quote substantial involvement for more than ten years with us team usa sources. Toll espn wednesday. The nigerian basketball federation filed an appeal too feeble on behalf of good mckay and elizabeth williams zealander dream center who was also denied because of previous involvement with team usa. The federation wrote that yoga mckay and williams were quote. Two of the top players that would have made our team one of the strongest at the games. That's the nigerian federation wrote that. So i don't know. I just thought it was interesting That piece but speaking of neck agoo mckay. Let's go to her conversation at The la sparks media availability. So we're getting media availabilities in case you can't Tell why just gave you Media availabilities from the olympics. But we're going to hear from the sparks you're also going to hear from the mystics because there's some news there and Yeah lots of news but neka ogm mckay got emotional during her media. Avail the other day when asked about just reacting to everything that's happened regarding not making the us team the petition. Not being accepted for her. To play for nigeria. So here's a little taste of that. It's been a lot of like trying to figure out how to how i want to come out of this. You know because. I think when you endure situations that are tough in life you can choose any differ roads and their stages. You know and so now i just. I'm just really grateful to be playing with my team. You know. I'm grateful to be on a team with people that care about me And i just wanna play. I just want to play basketball. And i you know they always say like situations in trials you know you you. You grow stronger In what is inside of you is kind of like exacerbated. And so i would like to say that out of that like i've always been described as resilient and i think i had to kind of tell myself that a lot to make sure that i believed it because it's been a few weeks of feeling on invaluable or unworthy and so like it's been very difficult. I'm sorry i swear i wasn't good. It's been very difficult. So i just wanna play basketball. Oh sorry i just want to play and have fun and emotional neck. Oga mckay again. There's been a blemish on usa basketball for quite some time. This was a hard olympics It ended with a medal. It ended with two players making history with coach. The deserves so much more than she will likely get Brand stewards the mvp of the tournament. I don't know how was it. Asia wilson and even brittany griner really had a great a fantastic gold medal game Has me eating my words. it's just a lot. It's exhausting I did not obviously go through. What neka has gone through. But i feel her emotion and so many other things that we've had to endure sushi's emotional for a lot of reasons. I'm sure but i from what i heard her saying is that she's glad to return to the court and to be with her. La sparks team and to return in a space senate away where she knows that she's valued because when you're not playing and you're in the middle of turmoil as neka was unsure. It's hard to to hang on to all of the good. And i just imagine what it must take tanakh neck. Ogle mckay off of confidence. I mean that just baffles my mind. But we're not gonna we're going to end on what we hope is a lighter. Note someone else that did not make the twenty twenty twenty twenty. One team is atlanta della. Promising future once. She can stay healthy it which she has not been able to do but we're going to hear some updates on linda de you know had a fantastic tournament. Emma amon. her numbers are up there. With asia. wilson. With brian stewart. You know us to do is another player. And they played fewer games because they got knocked out sooner so But we're going to hear from the washington mystics about elena della don end a little bit about.

"agoo mckay" Discussed on Locked On Women’s Basketball

"That we have luckily seen some of this as sky show saying the chat. Wnba we need merge. We've started to see more avenues. But yeah the all star game is supposed to be a celebration for both the players and for the fans of all of all the achievements that we've seen on the court to that point and at this point it's it's a couple of years that we've been robbed of an all star game to this point So i'm excited to see the players. Get out there. But i also as is true of oughta fans and a lot of players that we've spoken to have some confusion surrounding. The commissioner's cup a lot of players. We're not sure what was going on with that. So it's not just the all star game that hasn't been concrete -ly explained and defined. It's it's so much of it. And i applaud the leaves initiative but it could sometimes be a little bit crisper in. It's indeed indeed. Danny bar lavi has now joined us on. The state is is this the stage. I dunno. it's it was locker room. It was green room. And then of course there's clubhouse edano we'll call it the stage daily bar lavi also here and so. This is a part of the contingency that that goes to new york liberty game the beat writers here. So danny i'd love to have you wait in here will first of all i on that last point that you said i really do appreciate actually them going back to vegas just because of how well. Gnc in care of the players on the weekends like obviously from a fan perspective it would be cool to share the love a little bit and see if you all three games in other cities but like las vegas vile and the players seem to like it. So that's full. This format is so weird right. Have we talked about that. It's i i keep going in out of whether or not i'm a fan of it The team usa versus the rest for that my initial gut reaction when it was announced with just like you know i found it strange to thank you know the way we think about team. Usa it implies that one team is going to be necessarily better than the other. But as we're seeing like that's in terms of talent not necessarily the case. I also still find it interesting. Just in terms of like the time that he m- usa will have with each other ahead of the scheme versus the time. The other all star team will have ahead of each other at ahead of the game. I mean like yeah also like. Did you ever get clarity on whether or not i the all team. Usa members are officially all stars. Okay so all good things. And i think we can just leave it there like who knows right. That's part of what we're shining about. I think i love what you mentioned about vegas because when the all star game was held in vegas what was that. I guess we're going back to twenty nineteen. that's right. Yeah you already like asia. Wilson was already on her propaganda. Like you know and this is the best we've ever had. Now how how you know you never bid. You ain't never been to seattle which i talk about. But whatever she was on her. You know this is the best we've ever seen in. It should be here. You know every year and other players started hearing that throughout the weekend. I've also heard elsewhere that perhaps this is already something. That is an actual thing as in las vegas will be hosting multiple all-star weekends but as someone who will as of tomorrow be hosting locked on crack in the seattle crack team playing in climate pledge arena where they will have the high task of trying to match the seattle storm championships I can tell us dewey in them. They're ready for climate. Pledge arena to open up and to maybe give vegas some competition and then of course all of us make our way to barclays. I'm not confident. Barclays is is the top two especially with vegas and now climate pledge arena once that renovation is done but maybe top five in the league. I'm thinking so. I don't know is it. Is it fair to some of these. Other places or other franchises that have really made moves to improve their arena and or have gotten different ownership particularly on the nba side. I don't know rosters. And since we're at commercial break at least on my television. I do wanna get this out there and i know i was talking about this in the In a little group chat. But like okay. I have a hot heartache. I'm gonna put it out here. Public my heartache. Is that neka. Agoo mckay should not be an all-star a wnba all-star if we're going by performance in the league she should one thousand percent via wnba all-star if we are going for all of the wealthy and then so what i think at the end of the day it's like you said at the beginning erica releases beginning when i tuned in All-star games are events for the fans by the fans. And know i hate to. I hate to bring up. The i bring up a an example for men's league but this is how we get this how we get a things like john scott winning the when the nhl all star games mvp award therefore the fans by the fans are popularity contests at the end of the day. And it's part of the reason kind of why they're almost an endangered species because we have more access to neck oga mckay than ever before and if we want to see her take on the seattle storm. The las vegas aces. All we have to go is all we have to do is wait until the game happens. Or we go on youtube and we look up the highlights and whatnot. So i so. I think we i think it's a case of So it's a case of it. Defense want her there. She'll be there. Basically whatever generates the most attention the most ratings and this could be. This is a good showcase for league. And if anyone represents this league in a positive light Neka certainly does so. She's and of course she also She also has a movie coming out you might. She's going to be appearing in the space jam. Seek will so that could be some cross promotion right there. So i totally get what you're saying in a perfect world the all star game would be based on on court merits and whatnot but at the same time it's almost like this is a wnba event and you can't tell the story of this league of this modern league without talking about both the on court and off court efforts of neck oak mckay. It almost wouldn't feel complete without neka there. So i feel like we will see her in some way shape or form. I think that's very well said jeff. See auntie comes with all the spice. And then i allow you to to be the honey in the t. If y'all l i that i am surprised. They'll go ahead. sorry. I i just wanted to say that. I'm surprised that you didn't want this drama. Erica that you don't want neka getting a chance to show that. She was snubbed from the team. Usa that's the thing is that like i'm of the opinion ila vacuum but in all stars in all sorts of functions should be based on encore in that season. But this is such a different all-star game as we've been talking about it like you know the the decision to make it team. Usa versus versus the rest of the all stars in the decision to stop neka from team usa like does cast an entirely different pallor in an entirely different tone over the voting process and over the game itself. And so. I think that like as jeff was saying. This is more than ever a narrative all star game because of how it's different and like maybe in another season i would find You know like..

"But i believe a little news in case you haven't heard i will also starting july first to host of locked on crack in the new locks on podcast for the seattle cracking. Nhl or m nhl team very thrilled to be continuing my time with the lockdown family. But let's get into some women's basketball as always there are some updates. We have your players of the week by the wnba. We're going to give you the ultra player of the week by our sponsor. Michelob ultra and. I'm gonna give you the game set to watch. A lot of them are happening today. As a matter of fact the news of course and creena hit on this. Yesterday is usa. Basketball announced their roster. And i'm gonna get into of the tea behind the announcement. So let's i give you who made the roster Is pretty exciting. Of course sumer. Diana taurasi going physical mental. We kind of knew that was happening. Tina charles napheesa collier for time. Olympian skylar diggins smith first-time olympian sylvia fowles returns to usa. Basketball chelsea. gray also makes the cut brittney griner returns to usa basketball for the olympics. Jewell loyd making her debut has played for world cups including three on three breanna stewart also returns. She made her first olympic appearance. Two thousand sixteen. That was a year that she was drafted. That was the year that she won her fourth consecutive. Ncwa title what a year for study. I mentioned dt already. We have angel wilson. And i'm going to leave a link for you but i talked to asia and kelsey plum about their road to the olympics. Asia makes the five on five team ariel atkins is another player. That makes this roster. I remember this early occupants at the top will either way. Show here we go. We have a cluster of players from both phoenix and from seattle sue bird breanna stewart jewell loyd representing of course the seattle storm reigning champions. Then you have. Skylar diggins smith brittney griner diana to rossy all representing phoenix area atkins and now tina charles. Tina charles representing washington the washington mystics chelsea gray in asia wilson together representing the las vegas aces and then nafisa collier joins sylvia fowles as the two representatives of the minnesota lakes. So there's a little bit of clustering that we see here. But i also mentioned yes. There is drama. There's always drama. Who is the big snub this year. While we know from twenty sixteen. That candace parker says she will not be engaging in any more. Usa basketball activities. She has held to that and It's a less than amicable. I would argue but neck. Oga mckay not given the opportunity once again to represent the united states and take to what her sister sinead ogle mckay posted on. She put the check marks here. It's a lot of them. So i'm gonna read the tweet and then i'll read the statement that She posted within the tweet. Geneva mckay yesterday. Monday june twenty first all these check marks wnba mvp n champion in two thousand sixteen. Last olympic year is in parentheses. Six time all star four time all wnba four-time wnba all defensive team. Two times people world cup gold medalists a number-one pick and rookie of the year. A euroleague champion. Wnba a president. Oh and she's one of the few who went to every usa camp the last five years so if you click this now. Here's the to screen because not really page to page screen to screen. Page to screen shot statement from today. First things first some will think i am one hundred percent bias. This is my big sis. We're talking about but these are the facts and she deserves her respect. Someone great is always going to get snubbed from team. Usa that timing in quotes too much talent with so many amazing players comes with the territory but to be told one to wait your turn end to you. Were doing everything right. Including leading team usa in scoring last year and winning mvp of the most recent olympic qualifying tournament and three. You're going above and beyond in pursuit of this dream ellipse. It just doesn't feel right. My sister's favorite word is greece at the end of the day. Her time line worked perfectly to return to play for the olympics. Just wish that the process operated with the same grace second page that it has delivered to other all caps stars the grace that she bestows every person she meets but instead this is the second time that my family has been heartbroken for her. I have watched neka put one hundred and forty four players. I each and every day for all quote all caps. Excuse me years. No-one practices harder. Plays harder cares more. No one is a better teammate. Or leader representation matters in. There is no better representative or ambassador for the game that has gained all quotes than the nikai than negga mckay. She is on quotes only. She is the all caps only w nba mvp. That has yet to be named to an olympic roster. Give her all quote all cabs her respect. Anyways i know she's going to be mad at me for this because we agoo mckay's our team high our team high road over here or at least she is with the shrug emoji chennai. And that wasn't even the most scintillating of takes devereaux peters former wnba. Claire also took to twitter. And i will leave the links. Were you for both of these threads but it starts here and goes on for several tweets. i can't even count them all because she's also replying. Oh dev i love it okay. Let's talk about. I'm i'm these direct quotes okay. So let's talk about bum ass. Usa basketball abc's. I'm going to preface. This by saying am happy for the players that made it. I have no issues with them whatsoever. They work their butts off for that opportunity and each of them deserves their moment..
