Who's having an amazing season for the for the liberty They've also been without jazz jones who was probably one of the more underrated younger players in this league. dallas has without sautin sabally. The sparks did get back kristie. Tolliver today do mckay in neka mckay coming back from the break. So that's positive. Washington got dell bad but now they don't have tina who has a gluteal injury gluteal which is your but And so god right. Washington gets one back loses won crystal. Bradford who is the spark of all sparks for the atlanta. Dream is out as well as candidates. Do pre tiffany. Hayes is back but not really still kind of finding her rhythm. So i just saw this injury thing. Happy for those that came back but just sending lots of love to players who are still trying to or on the men. Because it's not easy we did get diana back to. We got her bag during during tokyo but It's just. It's a delicate delicate space to be in an even with dell don. It's day to day with her bat. Like you just don't know so i know these athletes have been going through a lot over the last two years trying to maintain a high level of performance whether it's endurance or just being healthy and it hasn't been easy during kobe. Workout changes all that stuff. But i just felt the need to say we feel for you at least a clark. You know there's some people that are that are are out for the season. Yeah we're we're sending your thoughts. That's all i want to say and with that we will now head into the second quarter. Second quarter inside the huddle. We are excited because this is the best time for. Wnba fans as we are finishing up the exciting second. Half of the regular season post olympics in headed full force towards the playoffs. Now if you don't remember the top eight teams make it into the wnba playoffs in right. Now teams are jockeying for position. They're trying to make it into the playoffs. We've had some great play. Unfortunately some injuries that may impact how things look in the postseason for the league but so much happening but before we get into all of that we walk him in one of our favorite guests de michelle voelpel. Espn and espn. W writer for women's basketball to help us. Recap a very special night in our sport and that is the women's basketball hall of fame which took place in knoxville tennessee last weekend. And if you don't remember the inductees were as follows to make a catching swin cash. Debbie brock carol. Callan sue donohoe. Lauren jackson david stern and carol stiff. So wow what a class in terms of their impact on our sport and so michelle. Welcome in always good to have you. Thanks thanks for having me just wanted to you were there. Unfortunately i did not get to go. I had a game. Saturday and sunday would have loved to be there. But what we're just kind of your overall thoughts on on the event and some highlights for you. I think the interesting thing about this classes that it really does You know take up. The spectrum of people who have an impact on lineman's basketball everybody from david stern without whom the league wouldn't have started to somebody like a debbie brock who is of the the delta state teams that won three straight championships in the w years. And you know debbie was Four eleven and You know with somebody who In in the early days of women's basketball she knew what her role as a role was to get the ball. The lucy harris And and she did that really well They had some video footage there of her. You know playing in the nineteen seventies which is always kind of fun to see because a lot of these players even people as old as me didn't get a chance to see them Very much back in one thousand nine hundred seventy s so you had you know that range and then you had you know people like That that are sort of the you'd said maybe the behind the scenes people who do so much with carol stiff with everything she's entity. Spn with carol callan usa basketball and then sued donohoe. You know with them with the ncaa. An and obviously was also formerly coach I thought there was. There's some real poignant moments there including you know sue donohoe unfortunately is passed away David stern passed away so it was. Sue's sister who spoke for her. David stearns is spoke for him and then because of cova Lauren jackson wasn't there so there was some poignancy there in who wasn't there but then there was some really funny moments but especially with swin cash and to make a catching because they're such close friends And then rivals representing the yukon tennessee rivalry so there really was something of every you know every type of person who's Impacted the game Was represented in waltham. Class was smiling as You know when you bring up uconn tennessee. it's got to be one of the most interesting dynamics. We have in our sport that to miki catching in swin cash or like peanut butter and jelly. Though they went to these two rival screw schools to most successful schools in history of women's college basketball It how you know. They tell the story of pat summitt and gene auriemma but also have collaborated to Build a foundation. I guess you could say for what we now know as the wnba players association. I mean those are two players that took the reins and served on several appointments for the wnba players association. And so when you talk about behind the scenes even the players on this list. It's especially those two. Were integral parts of You know helping us to move the needle in the game of women's basketball in so many ways and putting instruct sure and what is the players association and you know a lot of the marketing endeavors in the business side the wnba the players had to handle a lot of that in the in the early years of the league. And i know Swin cash in to make a catching the torch from others and were were a big part of that and you know i don't you and i are very fortunate because we get to interact with so many different people that work behind the scenes in our sport like donohoe like i wanted to once be an athletic director so i i spent a lot of time at the ncaa. I used to do their leadership programs and learned a lot about how it worked. And who are the people behind the.

"Why had she is a killer a dog and you have to respect that and yes. She's been she's been ready by. I would love to see her with usa across her chest. As well i would to know. I think we're going to redefinition. I'm gonna go out on every team. There's a spot and she's the first call so my second player on the seem adult think should be controversial but it might be because i have a landau long making the twenty twenty four eighteen if we took out injuries from the equation. This is not a difficult decision. Let's rainbows players in league history. She's been in twenty nineteen jeter best season ever However she does have her back injury the back injury is in his long and she's just starting to come back and feeling good and those that was really encouraging to hear what atlanta had to say in her press conference the day of of how well she's feeling and how she's feeling like yourself out there a little bit more but we all know necessarily what we're getting from l. on going forward just because of these injuries and so we see it and we see her back to where we know she can be. It's gonna question marks hanging over. But i think i think she's going to be healthy. I think she's done everything. Can't care everybody. She still only going to be unloaded. It's gonna be three three years old in twenty twenty four Sometimes i forget that skyler orlando britney griner in saint draft near but she shouldn't be in her late prime she's healthy. I think adding her to this team has yet another perfect. Addition to create the space for wilson and sought. No doubt you know listening to her like you said on that on that presser. You could tell how much the game means to her. Don i mean at the beginning of of what she was saying that it was just so great. You just play again. No just to be back with your teammates again and you could hear in voice how special the game is to her sphere and everything that she does as a competitor and she did a taste in the twenty sixteen games in rio got that gold medal and again. I think there's something to that you know you don't just want do at one time in san okay. That was fun next. I'll see good luck to the rest of you guys know. I think she is a fierce competitor. Who has fought her way through so many injuries. I mean she was a just a bionic woman in the finals. In twenty nineteen with the you know the face guard knows the bone bruise her nian three herniated disk and her back and yet still came out with a double double in a championship. That sees so. Let's let's be. Let's be cognizant of of what her medal is and it's not the gold medal. It's the metal on the inside of della don that we need to be discussing and she always says you know i'm i'm gonna go out one hundred percent never going to be able to hold backing his. That's just who i am. I'll never come off court. let's say hey that's enough for today but in twenty twenty four. Yeah man. I know that she wanted to be on this team. She wanted to be on this team in tokyo. Trust and believes she wanted to follow up that twenty sixteen gold medal run so another player. Who have that hunger to get to paris. She's going to be ready hopefully physically as mentally every. There's no quested how much she wants to be on that. Roster and i just think health is going to be the only thing that that keeps her off of it if there is at that point you know and and like you said backs are tricky. I mean we saw that with you. Know larry bird at the end of his career like you know and he said like you can't move anything if you're back isn't right but she is. She's ready now. And that's what remains to be seen so we'll just continue. Obviously to keep an eye on elena deli and what she looks like in the next couple years baiju best believe i know that she would have said yes if they ask this year to click. We wouldn't have sold. No no no. That's and that's and that's why like what you said. The only thing that's colder bacchus health. The only thing that's gonna hold atlanta dombak south. 'cause she'll be plenty good he's gonna be. Nba one of these players have thanked who ages perfectly for for the modern basketball you. Now if she's healthy. I think she's got a long and this is what she said sushi. She says i'm planning to have a long career ahead of me a lot of years of basketball head of me I think it will include this. Because if she's feeling you she's not someone who's gonna come out here and say just like oh. I feel great for everyone else's sake so i think that was a great signed to hear her. Say that and i think she hopefully will be on the paris team. That's that's and that's certainly not putting anything on. I think if add said also like. I need brakes now because of i think that's totally fair to obsolete. So we'll see. It's yet to be seen but i'm betting on her making it miami. Pick though i know is controversial. But i don't think it should be. Adults should be controversial by believe it is. I have sabrina. And ask you on the twenty twenty four pairs team. Chris making mother face. So here's what here's what she. She's only twenty three years. Yup she has not the high on an s q was insane. There's never been a re. There's very few athletes. I can't remember in basketball players who have had that level hype on new to be the face of the league and the best foot now best finally from one. She hasn't been married but she's been really good. And you have to replace sue bird and there's not a lot of point guards who have that sort of passing ability at her potential at at at what you can do at her potential. She hits it. I don't think there's many players have the passing billy. That's and on top of that. Carol callan has already said that an s you can be a big part of the usa program go forward. So that's i think she still has the inside track. I just think it's a. I'm betting on rescued developing. Because i think she's going to get to where we all think she can get to when she's health. I think that's hopefully going to come in the second half of the season but see. I know it's controversial. But what do you think about that or do you want me to give you the players considered before we talk. We talk just about my last pick now. I think you know if karaoke allen said that the as she is going to be in the mix than in the mix like right now. She's in the midst for the twenty. Choose remorse around three team as well she she would've ran she's going to be participating in that had an been for the pandemic and then Little bit with their injuries She would have been on that. Three but continues are right. No you're good. I just think it's another one that just kind of remains to be seen in three years now. I think chelsea gray is a player who is a great passer on the team. I have already said she's on there. Okay i was like everyone's back besides terachi fouls and birther. Okay okay make sure. I'm all right. Let me get my son record. Have chelsea chelsea gray starting on the scene. Picking that right i. I'm just making sure now. He's you know. But i just think you know we have to have more than more l. coaches no you have to have. I mean you like to have more than one point. Guard.

"On twitter. For all the latest and greatest stuff going on From us in christie. Where can people find you on twitter before we get into. Who's going to be on the olympic team in twenty four absolutely. Hey at christie's chr. I s y. W scott fifty one on both twitter and instagram. I g i guess says instagram. But i g g now. I guess i keep it short instagram three syllables. It's way too long words too much so on. I made all my predictions. There explained my reasoning behind. This and i think my first the first thing. I want to run by you is. Do you think this team this route. That we had in. Tokyo is going to be lar- mostly returning if they want to. If they're healthy with all this disclaimers if the plan do you think that Most of this group will be back. Because i when i was in my article i send yes thing. Most of this group is going to be back. I know dawn. Staley is head coach. I know that carol callan is heading out as usa team director. So it's it could be a situation where there's going to be big changes to how they do selection process but team. Usa has relied on pass elections in in the past three games. Two thousand twelve twenty sixteen and In two thousand twenty. So i'm guessing it'll remain somewhat the same so my first question is do you think. Largely this group is coming back. I think so. I mean i think that this was as challenging as any of the other olympic summers have been especially obviously for the wnba schedule and have to basically not have the same training. I miss the the other teams by when you're looking at the the six new players to the olympic roster for tokyo's team. I think they're definitely coming back in three years time right so i mean this time we have to wait five years for the olympics and that was little sketchy because you know we have burnt eurocity. Who were making their fifth consecutive run. So they have to wait an extra year for that. That's tough right so now you only have a three year. And i think that makes it a lot easier especially for the newbies. The six new players to stay engaged with what it takes in terms of the routine in terms of you know obviously the wnba season going on by staying in those usa camps and and keeping chemistry that they've developed and keeping the things that they learned from this experience that you can't you can't i don't know you can't retool that you can't get that somewhere else like that's that's an invaluable piece that usa basketball needs to keep in place right. I i think that those six players would be terrific. And i think you know my youngest son jordan. He loves nba loves wnba and always watching. So he's watching right. So you know the the the three x three team you know and kelsey plum in how nominating she was. You know you have to think about players like that. Being added to the national team and he was like. Why didn't you make the national team. And i'm like no what she was. She was hurt. I think. I think the achilles set back down olympic team. And but you know it's a hard discussion. When you look at this roster we will get we will get to plump. Yes but yeah no. He's right. I think that three three team. That's another interesting topic for the twenty four olympic. I'd not tack those talk about the final five team that three-team. I wonder what they're going to start doing that. 'cause i could see i could see that being almost a training not not training ground but a way to get four players. They think you're going to be on the olympic team in the future. Right giada chemistry if they if they fit into what the team needs to do to gold. Obviously they can win gold and develop chemistry in hopes of either being on the final roster. Continue on a three x three. I think that ashley That'd be great But back to the final five so agree with you. Most of the So have a locks to make the team brianna. Stewart fantasia wilson. That's easy here. Yeah that's the future of years basketball until they retired hopefully decades from now. Okay so that's easy the rest crazy the taste for have virtual locks who are basically all the players you mentioned so in the peace collier jewell loyd aerial atkins chelsea gray sky. Smith i think those what is that six players not five players so those five players i think are virtual locks because they think they're just not on the same plane as stuart wilson. I don't think most humans are on the same plane a steward emotion. So i put them below. But i think all of those players Should be on the next olympic team. Especially collier lloyd atkins in gray run into a little bit of controversy though on schuyler digging smith so schuyler is going to be thirty three When the two the two thousand twenty four games roll around and i've heard some people Are heard some fans in my mentions and people have talked to about this. Say the cheese. Maybe not kind of players going to age as well as a as a shubert has may not be at that elite level in twenty twenty four. Obviously way way wait. Wait wait wait wait. Why not like see. She's getting she's going. She's getting older she's smaller. Her shooting is not as She's not it's not good at three point shooter. She does rely on on her. Billy to get inside against the ram what i think and i think you know. I think we agree on skyrocketing spent. I think she'll be on this team. What i off. Because she has the experience. And secondly because she i think her distribution is gonna last for a long time. I think she's also kept herself in shape. Really well as linked by. I think she'll still have that speed. Come twenty four. I don't think she's gonna be twenty thousand eighteen of spoilers on that but twenty two thousand fourteen. I think she's pretty safe. I want to get your opinion on a scholar. Well number one you know i. I think she has waited so long for the chance to play on this national team. And you know she has been very transparent with you know when she first came into the wnba how she had to make so adjustments and get herself together mentally and physically for what the game was all about and that next year she got most improved player in the league. So this is a player who knows what it takes and for her to earn a rosters. But you know how hard it was to earn roses on this team for tokyo. I mean it's gonna be hard for all the players we want. I mean outside of outside of louis in asia. Tough for everybody. Who's like honestly and not to say that that there's a reason that they shouldn't be no. There's going to be another three years. There's going to be a new crop players. And it's going to be tougher and i get it so speaking specifically about skyler figured smith i mean i think that she has now tasted the experience of having the olympics dislike. She tasted the experience of having the opportunity to be drafted into the wnba as a rookie and then came back as most improved the next year.

"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.

"So you're on the olympic committee and of course you coached the women's national team to two medals into them twelve and two thousand sixteen. How is the process going. How is the prep going. Where're you in in construction. Ye rosters right now for the games well again. I'm gonna show you the the the crazy thing about you. Come vessel in two thousand twelve coach. The olympic team. We had six uconn players on the team. I didn't have anything to do with five of them. They were picked like before. I even sat down they go. Here's here's the committee. Thanks what do you think i go. I'm on board. I got it so that that's a criticism. They often happens is that it's you kind politics politics so you come politics what you're going to keep sue bird off the olympic team in two thousand twelve or date or tina charles or by. Oh okay. i don't care if you hate you can if fury olympic coach. Want those guys on your team right. You wanna win so now the uconn player it comes down to somebody and swin cash so i stepped out i said look. I'm not in this discussion. You guys decide and they pick swin. I i said i'm in. She has previous olympic experience. Yes just one wnba championships. I said i like the pig now. We got one pick left and it was set aside for britney griner now britney says i'm fine so now we got a spot open so i said to commission what is the biggest problem that this olympic team is going to have some snow. This big kid from australia this this six seven six eight kid from australia. She is going to be a major pain in the ass. So we gotta figure it out that one out and now over. In europe asia jones is final four. Mvp anybody to knows asia. Asia ain't afraid of anybody anywhere anytime you know. So i asked around. I asked him out a bunch of people that play. And i said all right. What do you guys think. And they said coach man. You need to get asian jones on this team because she said you these guys like i don't know if they can guard this other kid so i said this to the committee and they gave me like a lot of pushback and i said okay. Fine i i'm just telling you. I have to look down the bench. I have looked down the bench. And i gotta make us up. You guys never have in the olympics. So i'm telling you that's the kid i want now. I'm going to get off the phone if that's not who you want. Then that's fine. I got nothing to do about that. Took them forty five minutes. Whatever they put asia on the team now. We're playing australia. Semi finals of the olympics. Tina charles sylvia fowles. This parker are getting their asses kicked by this debate. She is destroying that. She's got nineteen at the half. Gosh so now. Come in at half-time blah blah blah blah blah. We go out in the second half. I sound given this ship five minutes so they come out. We're sitting five minute walk. i go age. Come on man you go out here they come. They're coming down on offense asia's standing at the free throw line meet their there doesn't with comes over and she's running to the block. Their favorite spot and asia goes cam right here and stands her straight up. A sucker scored the rest of the game. Wow now she was wrong. I mean she was young but asia only helped us win one game. The one game we had to win right so those were two six now. We go to rio. And you're gonna keep sue off or day or maya or tina or stillie. While somebody was he shouldn't have been on because she's a rookie. I don't care if she rookie or thirty five year old. who's better. Who's a better player than than her. At that time so it was the biggest collection of talent ever and they all they all dumped on me. This is yukon politics. Auriemma this gino. Auriemma adapt blah blah blah blah and. Carol callan kept saying it's the committee. Man committee picks the team. They don't wanna hear okay for fuller. Two thousand twenty twenty one twenty two. Now we're in this cycle. Yeah i ain't even the coach and now they that the committee did a shitty job. Especially gino auriemma. This you come bullshit. It's gotta stout wait a minute. What was the coach. It was my fault now. i'm on the committee. It's my fault. So what what is it though. Like okay. So now two thousand twelve. Of course. you don't lead those names off. I think that the sentiment is in two thousand twenty one. Are those names still the same power two thousand twelve and a sense of the best players. That's kind of what i think you know. There's a lot of discussion you know. Naked go mckay's name got thrown out there a lot for get not getting on there. So that is the question of like yeah. You're not even the coach anymore. People still have a problem with the yukon politics. So what what is it. You know what. I said one of the things that i said i said To somebody. I said explain to me if you olympic coach. Would you take any other guard other than dan even at her age right now. If the answer is yes.

"carol callan" Discussed on Locked On Women’s Basketball

"Second tweet however usa basketball has been fraudulent as hell for eternity because of the bs stay spew to players about the process and frankly a lot of people are sick of it. That's why you see. All these players leaving to play for other countries and the usa pool looks the way it does again. It goes on and on. I highly recommend that you take a look at that some of the players that we have seen commenting about a process. Likely the usa process lexi brown diamond deshields. We've also seen kelsey bone in so this is not new as a lot of people are pointing out as john pointed out regarding her sister but also candace parker and other people are wondering what the heck is going on now to some extent. We don't really know the us ab process. As i understand the head. Coach is not the sole decision maker. There is a committee. A committee of people that is put together to determine who is best suited for the role. Now looking at this roster. I think the name that stands out. If you agree that naked is a snub. Which i do is nafisa. Collier has nafisa played on the higher end of average in her wnba career. I would argue. Yes including being rookie of the year playing with minnesota. Has she been better than neck again. I don't think so. And of course a lot of us are using the test in the wnba or not add these camps at least not in their entirety. I have spoken to carol callan. I have spoken to dawn staley. I've spoken Over the years about what that process with that system is and it's pretty hands off. You can read some of my articles. And i will link them that i've written about this for the athletic in particular but there is a lot that usa basketball is expecting their players to do before arriving at camp. Obviously last year was almost completely awash. I talked to asia wilson about what she did adopted to Kelsey plum. who's not on this twelve person. Five on five roster in the three on three roster has not been set although she did help the three on three team qualify as did nafisa collier as did a leash gray. An as did a stephanie dolton. So we'll see what happens there. i don't know but there are a lot of people upset but coming up next on lockdown women's basketball of course with neka with candace and a handful of other people not being named to usa basketball that means they are eligible for the wnba all star team that will face off against usa ball. That is coming up next on knock domain. His basketball star talked about the snubs. Let's talk about some players that we wanna give some lovin. The ultra player of the week presented by michelob.

Liberty a three point win on the road against the los angeles sparks in a game that although one day early was commemorating the first ever.
