"They missed opportunity because she was one of the top thirty expoters just just for the record. She was a top thirty six at or so he could have slept there for this roster and i just i don't i don't disagree. It's just like to me. The argument for not having her is pretty strong. Because i do think i can't. I can't find people on this list. That are not deserving their eight their eight first-time all-stars on his team right and rossy hurt herself right. She was injured. She's making her tenth all star parents. I mean she's on team. Usa suber twelve time all-star on the all star team and no shade. I mean definitely deserving but so is neka period i if the rossi bony hurt for a month and still make the team then darn it neka can be hurt for a month and make it to okay unable as we say. Let's say what we're saying is well. Let's put on spot so we're energy right now is we're gonna. We're gonna pick a spot for nick. And i know i know i know what you're saying. I think i think you're right for team. Usa team usa should have been that his name at the top. Maybe a couple of other people's name ripe yasser and then you build out the roster. I'm with you there but now that we're here we're had been broken. The omelette is on the skillet so we gotta figure out. What are we taking out of here to put in to put a neckarsulm kit. Let's start with the us women's team. I'm like okay. I'll tell you who i think so. I think a lot of people pointed tina charles. I'm like i don't if i'm having a basketball team. And i have the opportunity patina charles on it right now. Absolutely no chance. I'm having a basketball team. That does not have tina charles on. If i can't charles on like yeah she's been. Mvp all your so. I'm looking at the front court players. Because i don't want to try to figure out the guards because i think the like they needed all these cards. Okay so we have brennan stewart. I think brianna brings a little something different. I think asia wilson Is brings a little something different and also you want those players in your system you want you want. Usa fans to see these players and recognize that. These are the future copacetic thing. So now that leaves us with. I think if he's collier should be on there too just because if we're still it's now unless down to two choices here britney griner sylvia fowles. You gotta have breeding ground on the team. Just in case you need someone who's bigger than everyone else point blank period. That's the story and she's only been there once only has one gold medal. So i think it's important to keep her in. The system is four gold medals. And i'd sylvia is one of if not the greatest center in the history of the wnba. That being said ain't gonna make a difference to team your bottom line if it sylvia fowles or if it's negative mckay. They're going to win the gold medal regardless if if it's soviet naked you in bank them. So that's why i'm gonna pick sylvia fowles off the roster has nothing to do the way faust playing has nothing to do what you brings a team and understand that a lot of people are gonna say. Well that's how you pick a basketball team. I don't disagree with that and a lot of places bond team usa. I think career achievement commitment to the team and not being there before really matters so i would take sil sil out output neka in to her spot. That's my what we have here you but again. Gabe i disagree and i love. I've loved nafeesa collar. And i love her upside and her game. Neka over nafisa collier. That's my tech and that's not that's not disrespecting collier's game i love her game so the pizza. I don't know if you're listening. You know the the the team would be in a listen. I get it. And i'm not hating and i'm not like shaming her for making it and she shouldn't have made it no. I'm not saying that. She should have made responding but if there were a player to take off and put neck on it would be for me. It would be caller and she has. She's young like she has upside. Like i don't know like in the next four years already have to wait an extra year for these olympics and you know health and everything you know with bernard and with obviously with terachi. You know they're they might be playing for years right then. There's a chance for effete to call your to make the roster the next time and definitely warranted definitely deserving definitely but neka right now is is next like this. This is as sue bird than it's roc- olympic game situation so for me like a man in four years who knows if we have bird to rossi and neka go mckay available for the olympic games but guess who is available this time for it to three of them give them give them the opportunity to play. That's all i'm saying. I'm not obviously on any committee for the olympic team blah blah blah. But at the same time. I'm like well this is their this is their chance. I mean it only comes around every couple of years and this time five years later like man who knows what else are in. hopefully there's no other pandemic that sets it. All you know by more years ahead like it's insane. Think about that part of it and think about it that way. That nafisa has some years in her career to get it again. So i can't say the same for mecca saw move nafisa collier off the list and put mecca on it because of that fact the thing with the young players in the olympic team is that you need when you're at all no i mean the women the women's side things a little different because ever if you're invited for the most part As a woman to be on the women's national team you're gonna go whereas the men's team is a little bit more fickle so it's more important obviously to get the young players there by still think on the side it's important to get young players like act like ariel atkins and if he's caller andbranch during in asia wilson. All that brand stewart's already balancing but to get those players into the us system and to get them with that senior team in the olympic so that next year right like you mentioned next time around in whatever it is. I don't actually know what her schedule is next. Time like a lot of these players. We let shubert. Tina charles skyla digging smith. Maybe fouls chelsea gray britney griner Still be around and diane rossy like those are gone so now. We're going into next year's next time olympics with a new team. Usa president by the way yes a new team usa president. And then we're going to have all new all new team. So i think the thinking behind having those young players there is you want to get them into the next time..

"The best way. We'll be. All right there goes natalie sean wa so more to come from natalie but as you heard and as i've talked about here on the show there was a vaccine and vaccination awareness mentioned that sylvia fowles was one of those athletes that was unsure how she would approach being vaccinated by understanding from someone within the links organization. Is that since. She mentioned that and that was again during usa basketball media when selena was with usa basketball and hadn't yet arrived in minnesota. My understanding is that sylvia fowles is on track to be vaccinated if if she has not been already so i will make sure to follow up with that but so we gave you minnesota wellness through plant mom. Sylvia fowles as well as social justice with natalie chana and i've been stringing you along all episode but it is time we are going to talk about some of the tea at the top of the show. I gave you a little bit of a tease. Tina charles wanted to know who asked that question and well. It was me and you will hear the question that i asked that tina overheard.

"Fans of los angeles professional. Sports finally have something to cheer about. Close quote that means nothing for you guys as it does for me. I go poor as wearing his world series championship shirt. Twelve years beforehand. But this was legitimately like months before. Pagosov makes his way to los angeles on the lakers. Front the dodgers had the worst owner in baseball. The kings were very much the kings. This was a year. We're leg almost all of the professional level teams. La had losing records including sparks. It kind of glosses. Over the fact that usc was really good at football. But whatever that's important heaven ucla at the time and we're talking about sports where they don't pay the players. Oh wait oh professional. What's la teams had seen doing. Well so he's just pointing out the side like hey guys. There's hope which is a funny line to me every now and again i'll drop in a quote here. That's funny I do have to ask. We talked about the probabilities. And the hypoc candace parker and her coming to l. a. And we've we've talked about this note before. So i'm just gonna ask you go straight up the the a draft lottery rigged and i'll say this it's really hard to point at any one lottery and say rigged but if you look at a lot of lotteries over a long period of time and a lot of them look suspicious then each one of them seems to be more likely to have been rigged. Does that make sense. Like maybe this one in particular isn't but if you take this one in particular and add like seven others with it that look all just a little bit suspicious and you think Maybe across the board. If we gather all of these looking suspicious maybe increases the likelihood of any one of them being rigged. That's a diplomatic way of saying what i was gonna say. Which is yes. Yes they wanted to star in la not in minnesota. Since i see it for one reason and i don't see it for another one reason. Is i think it helps. In this case. They're tied for the highest probability. They were the fifth most likely team and had like got it. They find themselves but just kind of happened to the aces a but it was one of those cases of like. Here's this opportunity for you. Take it and run right. They were tied with the links. And i think i could see a scenario where commissioners go hey and have is tied with minnesota the highest probability if. We wanted to nudge it in one direction. It'd kind of be really nice if she was in a larger market like l. a. Right one thing that switches over. There's a third team in this discussion and it's hometown right. We talk about when the wnba kicked off. They tried to put certain stars in like markets to try and chinnery energy in the idea of well. She's from april. This is your hometown. Put her in chicago and see. If that gathers an energy now granted. She's not necessarily famous for being chicago. Basketball players playing at tennessee. Maybe the connection wasn't quite there but if there's a scenario where not even necessarily widespread cheating there's a scenario where i could just see a commissioner just kind of nudging one team and going all right. Let's see if maybe you let's freeze one of these envelopes and see if that helps. I could see it happening here it. It feels a little too story book and this is coming from a los angeles native but so appreciate it either responses on there but so this is the lead up to the season. Obviously we talked about the situation. The sparser in where the wnba is who are champions are the by. The way is also comes at a time when the college game was popping off. We've got freshman. Maya tina charles and renee montgomery yukon. Sylvia fowles at lsu. Just had simone augustus with sylvia. Fowles at lsu just barely entered the draft candice wiggins at stanford christie getting work done at mayor lindley lonnie mitchell's at utah. Alley quickly is at the paul. It was like it was clubbing. In the women's game right now there were so many good and teams and it speaks to just how much more stock was put into candidates because she was there were so many recognizable names and than she was at this extra level. That's the treatment at the very least the treatment. She was getting let alone. The started machida earned and that that speaks to how insane this year was. That's crazy to think that. Yeah 'cause in the same draft. I remember when we did our draft histories this this one ranked somewhat high on several of our list. Because yeah you've got candace. Parker sylvia fowles alec quickly. And i look at it really quick crucially horn christmas elaine. For s in essence. Carson's anything. yeah yeah. Like allie quigley. There's a johnny mitchell's a late second round like there's some really solid players here in that in that draft and so yeah. This is a big time for women's college basketball absolutely. I also think the one exception to the lottery as you look at how this draft was. If there's one case where. I totally could have seen their being like a quote rigging for the lottery. We talked about the comets winning to their last three games the previous season the hell kinda put them out of the running for one of.

"I also think we gotta talk about the links they're able to get Sylvia fowles back Brio sky by Sylvia Fowles, fourteen points, eighteen rebounds, and four blocks for Sylvia Fowles. Thousands only played in seven games this season after suffering. Calf injury she's going to be the most fresh player coming into these playoffs but outside of those top four, it's hard to predict because then at the same time you think well, Geez should you ever really go against Diana Tracy Schuyler digging Speth maybe not but historically in the wnba playoffs, it's very, very hard to get to the finals unless you're one of those teams that had a by coming into it. So my guess is one and two. The links or the sparks sneaking in there as well. The first round has already had a ton of excitement capped by shape Hattie's dramatic game winning three, the reigning Champs The Washington mystics. Pet. What do you expect to see in the second round on Thursday?

"And so that's kind of hard to to kind of balance as a coach because you wanna give everything that this player is capable of and you WanNa, teach them things, but at the end of the day it's. Display have enough. And, so I think she. She got a good happy balance of that interesting. The Link Center Sylvia Fowles kind enough to join US big opening day, performance, seventeen points eighteen rebounds, and you know in the NBA The perception is that the younger players have a hard time are harder time generally. Being challenged the way quote, unquote old school coaches have tended to do it, and many of them have had to scale back Anna Jocelyn a little bit going to be workable that there. They grew up in playing this AAU stuff where frankly they weren't challenged very much, so they're not accustomed to it, does this. To the WNBA it. What do you observe in the kids? In terms of the younger players in terms of what they're willing to accept, maybe compared to when you first came into into the league. I think round my time in the older generation before me they was used to just hard-working, getting done and nobody really giving them handouts. You pretty much have to prove yourself. And, if you did prove yourself, you'll have to prove yourself over and over again because it was just that much talent with these young girls now I think. social media can help in the store that image at the same time because they feel like if I have so many followers than I'm allowed or I'm entitled to do ABC when in reality, it's like you're here to be coastal, and your do things on a different level is. Don't matter if you have so many followers on social media, so I think that we move swing in that I won't totally blame it all on social media, but I think social media plays a big part in that. Interesting and You know a lot of us who didn't grow up with social media. Talk about this time. We can't imagine growing up in that environment with all the stupid things we might have said and done. Is Out in the open. You think about that at all. Yeah. I do think about that because I've done a lot of boneheads. And I can't imagine like bringing all that stuff to booth. You know to to the table. People having to see me act that way I mean. Yeah, we're young, we're. We're not mature and so things like that. Do Happen, but. At the end of the day also teaches you to be cautious of US around this in watching what you say.

This was someone that a couple of weeks ago. I lobbied hard for just to make the team right and it's like why why why are they not in the running odyssey. She sims. I will be very honest when when the move to the links happened. I very openly said that. I didn't think it was a great move for Minnesota and I wasn't impressed with what about I see so far just piles of Crow I've seasons. She has played so freaking well and I have been so wrong and just fanatics gray basketball and just I've had so much fun watching watching her play given that I was that you know that was she was she was my oh gosh she's my aerial atkins like I down hard on that and you and I said no to me you. You feel me so much but I like that so so let's review these rousers it gets fun so Kyle Theem della done. You're starting with later on this campus Chelsea Gray Jewell Loyd and John Paul Jones coming off the bench. They WANNA bonner diamond. The shields Sylvia Fowles 2017 M._V._p..

"Where do you think is far as records as far as <hes> records that she could possibly still break like where is she on that list to you of all time great W._n._B._A.? Players Yeah. I don't have the numbers like as far as where she is with milestones but I'd like to guest that ah based on what deb Rogge's said because I feel the same way like sill may have one of the longest careers that we will ever see in the W._n._B._A.. Obviously when you think about about dominant post players you know I mean you think about Lisa Leslie. You think you know it's interesting because I say Lisa Leslie but have we ever really had a player that dominated the low block as consistently as long as Sylvia Fowles. Will you know that's more the question because to me post. Play is changing right even Brittany griner is who will also. I think have a long career. I'm not sure as long as still though like what we look at the years at the end I don't know if bee gees will be as long as as sales will. I hope it will but it all starts with the way Sylvia is builds and I could remember like even before she got l._S._U.. And of course when she he was at L._S._U.. People just saying like what do you do with her. She six six and she has probably more ballots and more lower and upper body strength. I mean and I'm talking about like shoulders. Core War all that matters pose when you're getting double triple teams she has the physical bill and I don't think we talk about the physical attributes enough in the W._n._B._A.. I know we did a lot. Uh when Brianna Stewart came out because she was so lanky and you know it's kind of the size and the skillset together that makes her special but still has a power to her game and early on her career. I think people underestimated what she could be. As just a power player you know it was like Oh still needs to develop a hook shot still needs to be able to shoot from the free. Throw line still got to expand her game. Does she really did she ever have to do that. She's been an M._v._p.. In this league she's dominated even when she was in Chicago she was taken for granted okay because they didn't have very good teams and Chicago. She's been doing this for years. Every season. She's amongst the best rebound scoring blocks field goal percentage and she has had some injury stuff here and there but for the most part still has been healthy in on the floor never making excuses playing with that same attitude and there was a switch. You know I remember when she played on some of the early U._S._A.. Basketball teams like the Olympic teams and there were times was still wouldn't get off. Get a lot of time one of those teams obviously you've got great talent playing in front of her but I think also the systems that we see people playing doesn't allow for a back to the basket type post. Everybody fell in love the five out you know we don't want a low block player. We want space and we want this. Well obviously if you actually read you WanNa Sylvia Fowles right like who does not WanNa player that you can give them the ball and low block night in night out and they can go to work and they commanded an extra extra player an extra defender which opens up the floor so I guess my thing with Sylvia is she's done it her way and I think a lot of people slept on her effectiveness. Oh goodness. I think she's under appreciated what we saw James Way do with her in her time in Minnesota I think was outstanding. which is you know? She gives him a lot of credit for how she got to that M._v._p.. Season in how she so seamlessly fit into a team that already had hall of famers in it like I remember Shirl Rees saying I was nervous about taking silk because I didn't know how she was fit in..

"With a New York kind of find their rhythm there. Three and one over the last four, Minnesota zone four however two, you know, two weeks ago this was completely flip flopped in Minnesota the much better team. So that's kind of where we're at this these both of these teams seem to have switched where they where they started off the season by Saturday. I'm excited to see where they're both at when they go head to head Logan thoughts on thoughts on this game as we preview, I'm assuming you picked this because the most impossible to guess game. What wasn't going to say? Hey, Connecticut, Atlanta who you got? I'm not picking that game. I'm sorry. I'm picking one. That's like I don't know what makes predictions fund. Yeah. So a little over a week ago. The liberty beat Minnesota by six. In the last time, the liberty beat someone I didn't think they were going to be, and then played the second time they got shellacked by thirty five. I don't think the links I was gonna say you're gonna call thirty five point driving. It is in Minnesota. And I do think. I do think Sylvia Fowles is, is going to be a match issue for them a little bit. So I am really concerned that Tina Charles after just going for nine points and having kind of a quiet night, and thirteen. I do think she's going to be back. And I do think she's going to be the leading scorer probably for the game. But I think Minnesota's gonna they're not gonna blast it but I think Minnesota by by a touchdown. In this one. It's so hard to pick in this game. You could make the argument that Tina Charles is just gonna come back and control everything. Addicted to game probably gonna be the best player on the court. But my initial prediction is that Minnesota at home will right? The ship against a beatable team before going through the remainder of their schedule this week. I'm filling on that as well. Okay. Except for actually missiles, going to do it by more really I do. I think Minnesota's gonna gonna win this game by fifteen. In fact, in fact, I'm going to call a score. I'm going to say it's going to be eighty six to seventy one wow. Eighty six seventy one Minnesota over over the liberty. I just I don't know. There's something about something about this back. Like Minnesota dropping a game to New York liberty team that was kind of looked at as hey, these guys are aren't very good. And Minnesota header Leon been kinda surprising people like, hey, no. We're still here. Sure read is still an amazing hall of fame level, coach. We still have talent we still have Sylvia fells odyssey SIMS we got Daniel Robinson who's been playing phenomenal this season. They have a lot of tools, and I think people are kind of forgetting about him. I think they put it together. I think they get their own revenge game. Maybe not quite what what Las Vegas did to the liberty and their avenge game but I do. Think that Minnesota comes with a fifteen point victory. So we've, we've seen in the past week, we've seen the liberty ceiling and their floor probably. I mean they scored probably. Yes. In a to possession win over the sparks, and they scored sixty five and I don't know how many possessions that is. They lost a lot today, so possession. Seventy one points. Fifteen point loss is definitely towards that bottom book end. Right. I wonder do do you think Tina Charles will continue to struggle or will the rest of the team kind of regress around her? Well, here's my thing is, I think the sparks did a phenomenal job of shutting Tina Charles down. They focused defensively, so heavily on Tina, Charles nobody was gonna predict Zoe be was gonna drop nearly forty points on them. Nobody saw that coming..

"And that's just not fun. As vendor. DT doesn't win. You know, has only one what won MVP, I think, in her entire career, you know, we every says, she's the goat and yet won MVP. It's a similar thing. Expect more just got sports, like beat writers were already like the narrative is too, boring. It's. Do. Did you hear what they said on? I take. All I want to scare. Tweets, so bad like. Paris himself trying to tweet about the women's basketball. That's that I need that. Now. Honestly to bucket list item that for this season to try and get him to tweet about anything that we do. Oh man I remember seeing ghost bucket at could shell. They were pretty good. Imagine a skip Bayless style tweet or he's like Liz camby's doesn't have the star quality necessarily performance playoffs like he just throws out a bomb. It's not funny enough. He always gets a little too, plenty. He's always got like ten percent. Donald Trump in his tweets like annoying. Huge last night. The headed silly fouls became Sylvia technical fouls. You heard team at a bad position to win. We need to create a Twitter account called WNBA skip. Honest and just tweet that let's I. It could work. Get get that handle before this episode releases I say, I'll get the handle tonight. Before you guys here about it. So WNBA skip and Logan. Logan, and Steve, we'll just tweet from there. So we have three call outs for Brady Greiner for defensive player of the year. We have one for Sylvia Fowles Salat's of surprises on the -fensive end from our and let's get to probably the fun selections. Like these can honestly, go a lot of different directions or they could go. I don't even know this is going be fun. These spots that could have been so obvious. We forget the like a month ago, these are potentially very obvious selections and have gone completely out of wack. So that's where this gets. Rookie of the year. Enron gardner. Jason, let's hear it. Yeah. So I think one of the keys to winning rookie of the year is being on a team where you can immediately make an impact. And for that reason I do not think it will be Jackie young. I think she'll she'll be a part of that team that I think with Asia Wilson Cambay, she's knocking immediate impact, but New York needs an impact Asia. Songwriter. As a dare. I like it agree. You know, she has that star power, I think she's gonna track media attention. So I could see here getting some early attention. And when you get that early push and people are watching you from the get-go. Yeah it's gonna be you know that can really carry a lot into your consideration for the end of year award. So I agree. I think that's a great pick. Jason. I. Media needs a some top pick to talk about. Am I right? Yeah. It's slam on the Mets. Maybe. We're all awarded ourselves points for our jokes. Yes, I do that all the time because no one else is going to. It's the line from teddy from Bob's burgers, if final value my time. No one else will. Anyway, those really depressing that was send that we. I like the pig Asia der- from Jason rookie of the year Kyle. He got. I had similar thought, as Jason someone that needs to come in and make an impact on her team. That's exactly what Asia Wilson did last season. I actually was really considering I needed to make sure that the team that the rookie of the kind of came from a team that was gonna make the playoffs because I think that was kind of the determining factor between the two front runners into in two thousand seventeen but. We'll see..

"Doesn't when that's off i think it cascades affects other things yeah i totally agree with you and i'll start with la so a look of looking at their last i guess six games they lost five of the last six right now keeping in mind they win the stretch without nickel mckay and again a team's ability in this league especially with quick turnaround especially with condensed season if someone has to miss a game or two how you regroup from that is is important and i don't think this i la beat minnesota without candidates i think it's incredibly hard or would be incredibly hard for them to win without napa i'm not gonna say totally impossible because no one person is an entire team but she is so much to what they do they were trying to regroup with that but i think the thing that would have helped la when neka was out or when kansas has had these games i mean seven points against vegas or recently six points in washington was if they had the support from from their second unit that we've seen i mean lavender shooting career low from the field odyssey sims since moving to the bench is not having the same impact essence carson is having a great year back to shooting you know well didn't i think maybe her last two games she may have struggled a little bit but those complementary players have to be ready right you know kansas is getting up in years she does have some games where she doesn't feel well acts her when i saw in minnesota before that game i said you know what's what's going on with these games where you've had fewer point and she's like well you know we're a diverse team which i totally agree with you know doesn't have to be the candace parker show scoring twenty five twenty seven points night but she said i do have to impact the game and i think she's being more to resist numbers rebounding things like that but they're they're complete unit that you know we're used to seeing functioning so well which usually goes about seventy off the bench has not has not been that way now minnesota and it's interesting you say that about foulds because what i kind of see happening is they can't utilize sylvia fowles away they need to if everyone else is not as active as i need to be because we see teams collapse in whether that simone augusta's who you know can she put up twenty five or thirty at night like she used to probably not or if that's lindsay whalen can she you know like it the volume of scoring that this team used to have was ridiculous just you know a lot of things were on their side whether that's us or whether that's quickness or it's the rest of the league that has just caught up with them in some of those spaces so in my has had some really tough shooting night so what does that do two thousand it allows the defense to really focus in on her and so they've got to have that balance on offense i i think that's missing are they as good as we've ever seen them defensively now but everyone in this league has off nights and i don't even know that i would put minnesota anywhere close to la's category because minnesota did go on a seven game win streak they did beat la but the rest of the league is really good but yeah you're surprised when they lose to indiana and you're surprised when at the end of the game show repos all her shuts her starters out of the chicago gay because i mean what what what is this this is not minnesota league's basketball right yeah so i still get shocked when i see those two teams lose but i guess i have to allow them to be human but it just because of the pieces they have it because of the.
