Wrong. MM will lose in the long run. Players like Angel do not come along very often. Angel has incredible athletic ability, great hard earned basketball skills and strong will power. If MM were to force her out of Atlanta the Dream and MM will be the big loser. Angel does not need the Dream but the Dream does need her.
Coaching note: Anyone else noticed how MM was utterly ignored in the huddle and the players did their own thing most of the game??
Yeah the best thing about games on major networks is that they do the huddle mics and it was clear that Marynell doesnt know a thing. Brian Agler was clearly coaching on the West bench but the East girls were clearly doing their own thing and calling the shots - and they won!
My favorite caught line by the camera in the closing seconds: Ross: How many fouls do we have to give? Marynell: I don't know.
Nope, Marynell you don't know. Also notice that Angel played a lot of guard this game. I know its because of the all star depth, but guard is where she plays best. We need another small forward for our team and knock her down to the guard spot. If only our coaching staff and GM would see that!!!!
Why does our coach keep putting Angel as a 4!!! She is a 3 not 4! Last yr when she was 100% she played well against SOME teams as a four because she was faster...We are getting out rebound bc we need some BIGS in...put Paris and Erica in at the same time and let Angel play a 3! or take Angel out and let her rest and let Price play the 3 but we need to get on the board and run!
Angel isn't even a 3 - shes a 2 - just ask Geno Auriemma, a REAL coach and the Fenn coach that knows what true position she is most effective in. Thats why shes having such a slump, they aren't playing here in the right position. Price is a 3 and Sancho/Courtney should be holding down the 4. The whole lineup is out of wack!
the reason no one speculated about mazzante is that we all know mm's stuborness in admitting a mistake... add to that her preference for fair haired white girls... and no one really thought she'd get rid of her until she absolutely had to.... the fact that she should was not in doubt.... and pretty much agreed on by everyone....
Wow..somebody else noticed that. I didn't want to say anything...
