"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.

"Voice but in the first block. I want to just tile a little bit of a bow and the neck obamacare usa. Basketball conversation that i had last week. And if you're not listening to china robinson and around the rim. You should definitely do that. But here's a little taste of the latest episode of around the rim china robinson the host and of course to rico foster bradsby who is the producer of the show had espn writer. Women's basketball writer. Michelle voelpel on the show and michelle dropped some knowledge and really broke down and gave a little more detail than i think. I did last week on. Why not having neck on. This team is a really tough pill to swallow. So here's a snippet from around the rim and you can find the link to the full episode in the description. Make the case for us as to why people are so upset that neka ogle mckay was not named to the olympic team. Yeah supported a paraphrase derek. Fisher yesterday where to start right because there's a lot to say about this. I think it crystallizes for me like this. They have been. Usa basketball has moved the goalposts now three times on neka and over the course of three olympic cycles which she when this started she would have been twenty two for the first olympic says a professional and now. She's thirty one and two to me to do that to somebody who has been Not just a monumental figure on the court An mvp player. A champion of four times went to the final four when she was at stanford but has been one of the most important players. I think in the history of the wnba win. What she's done off the court and that should matter to say basketball because one hundred percent of their players are coming from the wnba She may say when. I say move the goalposts and try to make this quick. But i think it's important because we're not just talking about this year and you know that china. This is about the history of what's happened when she was a the number one draft pick back in two thousand twelve. There was no reason in my mind. She wasn't on that team. It was a perfect time to bring in a young star and they had done that with the last two number one draft picks diana taurasi and candace parker. And they did it in two thousand. Sixteen with breanna stewart. They didn't do it with neck ogm. What k- that was a really experienced team in the post. Even though lisa leslie had finished her national team career that that twenty twelve team had candace parker had to catching sylvia fowles. Tina charles Then you had wings like angel. Mccoughtry in my more very experienced guards with sue and diana lindsay whalen simone augusta's. It was a perfect time to bring in your new young face. That who also you know was was Just had this incredible personality right shoes everything you would want and they didn't do that. They took two players that were connecticut graduates. And i am not disparaging. Either of those player. Great player or some Swin cash and asia jones yup. But in in my mind and i would just say this. I don't. I don't think that was the right choice. One or the other would be fine but that other spots should have gone to neck ogm. They didn't need to more post players in their thirties. They had plenty of experience on that team. So that meant half. That team was connecticut graduates in coach. Geno ramos first year coach being coached. Usa basketball team so that point then the goalpost is oh. Hey we want more experienced player. Stats what they said. That's why we don't have neck for years later. Both candidates is parker who was thirty a two time. Mvp in tucson olympian didn't make the team neck ogm didn't make the team and breanna stewart dead. That team was picked in april of twenty sixteen before brian escorted ever played a professional game. Now he's a phenomenal player. We know that we've seen that but my point is again. The goal posts moved. The previous olympics has owing more experience. Now it's own now we've gotta make sure we get the young star in so these olympics. You're gonna say okay. It's got to be not turn now right like she's going to be thirty one next week. Should on everything you've asked her. She was on your core of eight players that they named back in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty and she was one of the best players played all the games she was. Mvp the qualifying tournament. Go post move again. No and they're saying well. I say they're saying because don staley's been the only one who's who's not on the slash committee who has said this publicly that it was because of the injury that neka house which is a sprained diana taurasi has cracking her sternum. And you know the the. i guess. The argument will be welsh. Were thinking she's gonna come back this week and next might be another week or two weeks and i'm like okay. Hold on the team had been like announced yesterday or given to the usoc slash say. It was the twenty third of june so diners. Not back yet either. We think she's coming back this week. She's thirty nine. She's eight years older than neka but they're giving her the benefit of the doubt. She's going to be just fine physically and you're not giving that benefit of the doubt neka democrat. So that's what i'm talking about about. Goalposts moving over the course of nine years three olympic cycles. And this happening to the.

"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..

"What's up wnba nation. It's another monday. Full of drama in w twitter lan. Obviously we're going to be all over it man. I am in studio with my co host. Kyle haywood what's up logan. This might be the first official time that we've actually recorded not like in separate locations. Were actually in the same location today. Which would be really easy for editing. Hopefully we don't have to throw so many through different for different tracks in. We can just add this one which will be really nice but yeah. I'm excited to talk about every everything that's going today primarily just so everybody knows today we are not going to be talking. Wnba standings wnba results will hit that later on in the week because the topic. We're gonna cover today is gonna take plenty of time and Kind of outside of a regular schedule. Wnba reporting boom. I think a lot of podcasts record together in the same rooms and they're heavy so hard to do to resume. And i'm still unused to this like yeah. This feels like i mean if you say right next to you yeah team. Usa olympic women's basketball team announced their roster today to the to my joy in the morning. When i saw the roster you'd send it to our chat. I thought man that's a frigging. That must've names. It's pretty incredible and then very quickly. I realized that there was going to be fallout from this from the w. kind of twitter verse and i'm sure you podcast listeners. Had some thoughts as well. So we're going to go through some of the more. I guess multiple names on the list analyze. Maybe whether they need to be there or whether the the committee messed up there there will get ahead of this from from geico. There are certainly politics at play when it comes to these things absolutely but i personally think that rosser represents the best team. Usa roster they could put together. I'll just get that out now. I'm not upset by this roster at all no but i understand the desire for people to see a couple of their couple of on the team and in particular that we're going to talk about so just just wanted to get my blanket taylor on the roster out of the way. I'm very excited for this. I think people are not necessarily fans of the w but recognize a couple of these names. And that's not the most important thing but like you won't be able to watch the games team. usa's dominant. I think a lot of this roster is going to track that sort of attention so kind of how do you feel about Yeah no those are some of my initial thoughts as well. it's a it's obviously. It's some of the best of the best right. We'll get into like you mentioned discussing. Who's who may be could have also been on this roster but if you look at all twelve of the names of the players. There's not a single person on here that you're like Yeah i i wouldn't have them representing team. Usa every one of them is. You know deserves to be here. The problem is there's twelve roster spots we get this argument all the time that there's one hundred and forty four roster spots in the wnba and that's it and some of the teams don't even feel the full roster and so oftentimes it's down in a one forty one thirty nine like the amount of players who are actually playing in the league and we get frustrated because it's like man there's not enough rosters. There's so much talent out. There were not being able to to have all of the available and then you take that to twelve. It's impossible to really say that. There's that many players not deserving so obviously there's going to be some feelings hurt. There's gonna be some issues and there's going to be different opinions but overall again. Congratulations to all twelve of these women who are Representing team usa with with the coaches. We'll we'll also mentioned the coaches coach. Dawn staley coach. Dan hughes cheryl reeve and jennifer reside really excited. Fantastic staff fantastic roster really looking forward to seeing. These individuals compete and represent team. Usa heading into the tokyo olympics. So logan let's talk. Let's talk some of the reaction though. Let's let's get some of the heated takes. We'll get to the spilt tea here right away. So the the player that is i think off purported to be the biggest snub is neck. Ogle mckay who did not make the roster despite being an mvp wnba champion face of the wnba players association Attend yeah we've. We've heard now over twitter through people in her inner circle that and her injury was expected to be subsided. I guess by by the time they live rolling around. She's attended every practice she's been all the camps and in in kind of a hearsay sort of way. It sounds like maybe neka received a sort of the impression that she would be given a spot after not making. The twenty sixteen team is that. I don't think anybody can confirm whether that happened or not. But that's sort of the impression that were gathering from what people around her right right and to be completely fair. Negative gloom k. Deserves to be on this roster for not only what she does on the court but also off the court she has done. She's done as much to further women's basketball and to improve the livelihood of the of the players in the wnba. As much as pretty much. Anyone else that you can think of. And so i think that there's an especial. There's there's a specially some some hurt feelings there. When you consider that she she was left off and she's played such an integral role in the health of women's basketball in the united states. So i understand that so logan. Let's say that we want to have neck on the squad. What arguments do you have like like. Who who do you replace to bring neck onto the squad. We've got the twelve pulled up right here in front of us. And so i wanted. Just kinda ask you. What are you hearing. People say who should who should be replaced to be on the squad and what. What's your take on that to me. There's only one answer that question There there is some players. I consider untouchable on the squad. That i've seen slandered on twitter today because people are thinking like oh like you know the they should have been the last one and or the first one out. Sort of thing really. The only one. I can see is i think dan or ozzy's injury and age. I like that to me. Seems like she doesn't need to be on his roster. I understand that. She's been on the recovery path longer than mecca has..

Dawn staley Kyle haywood ozzy jennifer Dan hughes cheryl reeve today dan monday twelve Ogle mckay twitter united states one hundred and forty four ros single person logan twelve roster spots one one forty one thirty nine first one
