"Almost a perfect game. And I still don't think, I mean, a real chance of winning this one. My definition, they had a real chance to win. So many things went right for them. Like how basketball works. I understand. And game one is the one to steal. Game one's the one to steal. Game two, we're getting an explosive offense out of Becky doesn't let her teams go under 70 twice. She hasn't let her team score under 70. Yeah. So definitely not twice. I said the same thing about Chicago. Did coach Becky hammon in college? So I also feel like there are some psychological Ness to it. You know, like a former player going up against, you know, your coach, so to speak, but I hear you on the trust from Becky Hammond I also think she just is less. Assertive, you know, media wise. So we hear less from her. Were you trust more? That's what I mean. We don't have as much information. Yeah, I get what you're saying. We don't have as much data to say that we shouldn't trust her. This is a series we're probably gonna say, oh, we don't trust Becky. I have a question. I feel like this series is so different. And in terms of teams playing a completely different style depending on completely different people from where they were in the regular season. Connecticut, defense was, I mean, they were scoring games in the 90s consistently for a while in the regular season. We saw Jackie young attempting 15 shots a game at one point. Now she's a fourth option. Third fourth, whatever? I just think it's going to, I don't know if Connecticut can turn back on that offensive switch because they've done it before where they've beaten teams scoring a hundred points. They beat the AC 97 90 earlier this year. In Vegas, so I guess it is doable, but you didn't have Chelsea gray playing that well earlier than the year. It is fascinating. So here's my thing. And we'll see how much of all of this I mean when we go to predictions because I feel like everyone's sick and I go one way, I'm probably going the other way. But for Vegas, right? I think they're kind of more well, I guess, two dimensional and offense because you have, you have Asia Wilson and Chelsea gray. Those are the players getting buckets right now for them on offense. Their defense is Connecticut's defense is very stout. So we don't have to worry about defense so much. So the ace is an offense can really only rely on Chelsea gray and Asia Wilson has been like that the entire playoffs. Connecticut has some more avenues to be better in. You know, they can go if Kourtney Williams, you have Courtney Williams. And don't want to bonner, who could all have better games. So we have four options here, and then we can also figure out ways to better put John quall into into positions to score. How many shots did she have to I would say she should get more 15. 7 and 15. She needs like 20. And then I think there's your avenue to getting to that 8 I think 80 points is really where they're gonna aim. If the game's in the 90s, it's going to fix. But if they can keep it down below preferably below 80 that I think they have a good shot. But I do think there's just some kinetica has something right now. In terms of having that defense so set that just relies on offensive variability. So it could come back in game two. If they are so scary. I was just going to say, they're dangerous because you really don't know what the heck is about to happen. But at the same time, I would not be surprised if they got swept. At all. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It is so. Would you be surprised if they got swept ice? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, I'd be surprised. I think they're going to pull out at least one. But all I'm saying is, all I'm saying is, if I'm Connecticut and we finish this game, I think you feel better. I think Connecticut feels better than Vegas does. I think Connecticut is like, yo, we were one possession away. We didn't turn the ball over. We rebounded well. And we only had 8 points between dewan bonner and Kourtney Williams. Players who easily on any given night can give the league 20 and 20, like 20, like each. So I think you feel better knowing that you only lost one possession. Like holding this team to their lowest point outage all season. And those things. If your Vegas, you're like, yo, holy cow. If Kelsey plum does not put the ball in the basket, and they keep defending us like this, we'll need Chelsea to score 40. And Asia to score 50. And let's have Chelsea score 40. I would love to be awesome. I'm going to be surprised that Becky is hitting Chelsea like bro listen. If I give you this look, 'cause Kelsey can't make a three anymore. Just go. Just shoot every time. In Asia, we'll get the rebound every time. Okay, hold on. Seriously, think about it. Who else should I said that in the middle of the game?

"Option on that mercury championship team a lot of that, right? Yes. She was obviously a lot earlier in her career, but yeah, that's a really good point. And yeah, Courtney Williams, as long as you bring her up, I'm just gonna go to one of my next ones, Courtney Williams. Okay, I'm glad I am picker 'cause that was the one I had on the top of my list. So yeah, that was a great segue. So let's do it. I mean, first of all, I share initials in a birthday with Gordon Williams. Second off, I just picked her on my fantasy team last year because she told everyone to, if I forget who tweeted, one of the reporters, sorry, I'm not giving you credit. Talk to Courtney Williams, ask her about fantasy fantasy. She said, I have no clue anything about fantasy, but you also picked me on dead. It wasn't Courtney. But also, I just think, I mean, she was a really big part of that 2019, almost championship team. They were what were they like tied with 5 minutes left and gave 5 with the mystics. They were close. And she was a huge part of that. She's a bucket and now when you look at this team, I mean, yeah, maybe she's going to be coming off the bench. You know, whatever. But that starting lineup that they had that year, they have the whole thing except for chiquita Strickland. But they also have dewana bottoms. So that's an upgrade, obviously. To me, this team is at least as good, probably better than that team that was minutes away from winning the championship. And Courtney Williams is a big reason why bringing her off the bench. I feel like if we look at this team the last couple of years, maybe against the sky even in that series, some of the things that cordy Williams brings almost feel like maybe what was the missing piece that maybe could have put them over the top. That energy in that swag and that disability, whether it's off the bench or just at the guard spot rather than a big to just give the ball and go get a bucket. And so I think I love that the sun brought her back. I think this is where she belongs. And to me, I know we're not making where this is all about intriguing players, but my championship pick is the sun and that's a big reason why. I like that. I think so two things. So one thing you brought up that was just thinking about, I was like, so she can instruct them obviously changing she can't strictly for dewana bonner. Is a step up in talent. That's a hell of a fit when you had Strickland there at the three four and it depends on what was happening. But when she was when she was playing the three there and you have Williams at the two and then you made a lot of sense. The reason why I think that 2019 sun team made it to the championship is because they fit so well. It wasn't necessarily just because the talent level, it was because they fit perfectly altogether. And this team, that's why I say dewan bonner there. And Courtney Williams is in the same category as like, does it all fit now again? Can they make that fit work? Because to want to monitor and stand in the corner waiting for threes. That's not her game. You know who else ain't doing that? Courtney Williams. Is not weighed on the three point line to get to get threes. She'll get to wait to get the ball and then she'll do whatever she wants with it. So now, okay, is John called Jones going to kind of like, who's the spacer? John quall could be a space or do you want her to be a spaceship? I mean, unless Thomas is not going to shoot, that's not happening. Alyssa Thomas is going to do exactly what she does. I mean there's little intrigue that she can do exactly what she does. So how do those players fit around her? Also, while we're here, is there any chance this year? Then nea cloud and takes a little bit of Courtney Williams minutes. Because I think you want to know someone who can stand on the three point line and shoot threes. Nia clone, she's a rookie. You can tell her whatever you could tell her whatever you want. She had three threes, I think, in their pre season game. Obviously, this is coming from the captain of the neo cloud and fan base. This is why I'm.
