"We can't rely on some coming back. We can't rely on Comeback back and being one hundred we you know. We can't for los angeles. We can't rely on sinead Mckay being a hundred. Because it's not going to happen so at this point blank. Put in your mind. It's us we we're all we're all we need and all of these teams have a brutal schedule. The three teams. I just mentioned washington york Los angeles brutal brutal schedule going down the stretch. So i i mean i think i agree with you. I think washington is a is my favorite to make it Impart because i do think the players back bahrain and and in part because believe out touch that's a feature of the gotta be. They gotta be the future. I think they will. I think was expert encourged flop. I mean if you're talking about a player like she tori walker kimbro who just signed along with best for the remainder of the season but for her to start the last eight games and play the way that she has been playing like on both sides. Yes her offensive prowess has aggressive. I mean last night against connecticut. She was four five from the floor. May both of our threes got lying eight times. She's very aggressive. She was in attack voted. She said after the game she said. I watched film from the dallas game and saw that i was playing very passively and decided to change that and who knocked in the first shot of the games she told off kimbro with confidence and i think that she also said he best post game last night that you know yes. We have injuries. Yes we have. Elena gina out but no no one's gonna feel sorry for us so we can't feel sorry for ourselves lead gotta go play and we have opportunities because we have games in front of us to take what we have to do. And yes you can depend on other teams losing to give yourself a better chance but once you start looking around what everybody else is doing you lose. Focus on the task at hand task at hand is to play your best basketball right now and i think that's what washington is is keeping in front of them. And you're gonna side i. Of course you're jockeying for for that a spot impossibly seventh. I dunno but jockeying to get in ned. Of course you're going to glance but that doesn't mean you're you're you're stayed on the other lane of this race. You gotta stay in your own lane. The you have to do your best with your skill set. I mean. Let's talk about natasha out when we were already talking about john. Paul jones for mvp Brianna jones for most improved right. How about natasha. Cloud for defensive player of the year. I mean she takes beat-up this assignments night in nine out and not because coach says. Hey you're gonna take she said. Let me take the top players. And i'm sure coast tibo assigned to her but at the same time you know your players are to have to want that type of challyi'j are else you. You're not gonna as a coach. You're not gonna put him but the cianci cloud is incredibly confident with her defensive skill set i mean she held to honor bonner scoreless in the first half. That was her match last night against connecticut and ultimately she was she ended up to ten arm. Sorry to of twelve from the floor in one of six from three so this is dewana bonner coming into the game averaging sixteen. She held her seven. So this is a player that is is disruptive Mitchell has said as in some of post practice opposed game comments about how she has disrupted diana. Ross on house. She has disrupted now dr bonner and just so many players down the list on the list but she wants that that challenge. So that's what it's going to have to come down to and kids. I mean she was amazing last night as well. Six eight from the floor. Four five three so she got her shot back for her sixteen points and it was really good to see that because we had already discussed how she's going to get different defensive attention in the absence of double john and charles so for her to step up the way she did and to stay aggressive minded desk. Great stuff man. She didn't get to the line either talking about neck and not getting to the line aerial atkinson last night so but she was aggressive with with hunting. Her shot no hesitation on her releases. Goodspeed left on the on. The early lift of her shot was really pretty watched. Last night's while so they have enough. Like you said asian highs allen. I mean she was incredible while another double figures scoring performance by her sixteen points and they just need they just need. They just need to stay consistent with that. And it's their bench play also placed on selling play seven minutes but they they need everybody. They need everybody. Now's your opportunity. And i know coach has said this as well like hey discuss like you wanna to play more. Here's your chance like hey coach get more points on play well and we need you right. Now Natasha cloud said did she has charged team with you know we go as we go right. And especially she. I think she said summation hides allen at halftime of that dallas game before they had that avalanche of offense and that one point win. So i mean as long as they're holding each other accountable to what they can do. I believe they have.

"Live here. Usa basketball the women's team seven consecutive gold medals and five consecutive for bird into rossy. I mean it's just it's mesmerizing just to think about it. And how they got it done amazing if it felt like a dream in part because we hadn't slept for a week like straight before that's kind of felt like a dream no it was. It was a beautiful sight to to see. Usa basketball accomplished school. And you could see how much meant to the team because it was like this. It was very special time of one. We have burdens rassi. And they're kind of riding into subsets. An sylvia fowles for that matter. Who's this my this. She's she's actually senator last games being competitors like this you can never believe him the first time they say it But seeing those three who have really come to define usa basketball get this one which fell tougher. This felt tougher because of the year. Long way you know it. We had some injuries coming. We end look strong coming then having a much time to practice so it was kind of it kind of felt like this one Took more and if it's appropriate to have these competitors in what could be their last olympics. 'cause i also don't believe burdened rossi Actually rossi said. We're gonna see you in paris which i think we kind of. I think we're thinking it's a joke. I don't know i don't die. Atrocities is not strike me as someone who makes jokes like that right well. I told us that that. I'm going to paris and i'm not joking about that. So maybe she's not joking either about. I'm sure i'm sure she'll be there. I don't know how much play is going to be. I don't think she al not. She wants to play. Well she wants to see. She wants to place you've got to be on the same but what's what's on without. Want to keep it on the on the gold medal. Game just like short sherzer. After after that and after the game against japan were brittany kreiner was dominant the. Us is kind of like the date. They really looked like the goliath team usa. That we think about it was just so beautiful to see everyone up there and the usa team. The japan team boso proud of their performance. And you know everyone it was just kind of like this is how basketball supposed to feel. It's supposed to feel like this is like you know it's hard to separate out the heartbreak when you lose By really glad. Japan was able to do that and give us small. Were felt like you know. We're all we're all happy and proud of what we accomplished. No doubt you know that that really was special to see. I mean obviously when the. Us team stepped up to receive their medals. I mean you know. I i if you know me well you know that my eyes were full of tears my faceless smiling as hard as possible My soul was happy. You know because the sacrifice was immense by all the athletes in tokyo this year. I mean to their families couldn't be there so many outside things that were distractions to the task at hand and for them to have those distractions and then come out and have that gold medal wrapped around their necks. I mean it was just amazing to watch that story unfold and the ending of a movie if you will And that way especially burdens rossi and credibly special. But when you're talking about the the to washington mystics players in erlach. Our first time is an olympian and tina charles her third time as an olympian three gold medals for tina charles. Tina charles had those tears in her eyes. And i mean it was joy and relief at all mixed in with all the sacrifice you were just speaking of coast tibo said that tina charles had mentioned that she would probably be the first one to shed a tear. You know and and it wasn't. It didn't look like it was a sad thing. I think she was just in the moment. Feeling the joy the pride the relief as they said in just to experience that for a third time i mean what would have beautiful moment. That was and then the camera. Just got right of on and tina charles and you just feel every single emotion that she was going through at that time and it was probably ten or fifteen different emotions but they were all unfolding ripe for is in an area lack and just she calls it a god moment. I see worked so hard to get there. But then now wow it was just. It was just fun to see that but when the japan team when they were smiling after losing that game. That was really something. And i will. I'll keep that with me because you know you you try to set goals for yourself and not just to win games. But if we can't be i we're going to be second and hit and if it was them i mean they had joy also even and losing and i think there's a lesson in that as well and i still haven't come to grips with exactly how to express what that is but that's different. Not everybody like you say can crack a smile after after not winning gold. But you could tell that. They knew that they had made their mark in the olympic games this summer. I think it's not not to be being delicate..
