WNBA version of Jordan? | The Boneyard
  • If you are seeing a McAfee pop up about malware, switch to the AO style.

    To do so, go to the bottom left of any screen, click the style currently selected (boneyard or dark), then click AO. If you still have the problem after switching, send me a screen capture.

    If you are not a registered user, you may have to switch style each time you visit until the issue is resolved, or register a free account. Edit: I'm told this Chrome Extention in helps to prevent pop ups:

In the 1990s Swoopes. Was called the closest thing to MJ in the WNBA.

Laugh now, but Diamond absolutely has the potential to become one of the best players in the league within the next few years.

That potential never materialized during her years in the NCAA, although the same high accolades were thrown around back then.

That's right. Diamond has all the physical tools to be one of the elite players in the world. That's never been questioned. What we didn't see in college was that fierce competitiveness and will to win that defined MJ. Doug Bruno once referred to Maya's "innards.' Usually those qualities are revealed in college.

I certainly phrased it that way on purpose. In her defense, both college programs she played for were disasters with coaches who have since been replaced.

That's the intrigue of Diamond. Can she finally put it all together on a consistent basis? I don't blame the doubters and I was one once.

The way she played won as a rookie won me over but obviously as a Sky fan I want/need to believe that she is a future superstar.

I'm just saying get your laughs in now because if she does put it all together you may not have the opportunity for much longer.

She also had some injuries in college. In one game against Alabama she was taken of the court on a stretcher. Last year in 34 games average 14.4 points. I think she is ready to have a big year.

I think she's heading toward a big year. She has a different look in her eye right now. She seems focused and has the killer instinct back, like she had her first season at UNC.
