My Thoughts on Women’s Hoops
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good everyone? We had a little bit of a let down last night against the Warriors. Tonight will be another big game because we have the same record as the Blazers and need a win against them to stay ahead in the seeding for the playoffs. Make sure you tune in and check us out tonight!
Well, the college basketball season is officially over, but I really havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talked much about womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basketball. Since I was just watching the WNBA Draft the other day, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s talk about the lady ballers.
First off, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a big fan of basketball no matter whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s playing Ã¢â‚¬” women, men, young kids. Being drafted into the NBA, I know thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a big thing for anybody to be able to go into the profession theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always wanted to go to. So to see the smiles on everyone’s faces when they heard their names called during the WNBA Draft was something I enjoyed.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a couple of friends who were drafted that I got to know over the years from playing basketball, too. Monica Wright, she went to UVA and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re from the same area. Tina Charles went to the University of Connecticut and Jayne Appel from Stanford, we all played in the same McDonalds All American game. So it was cool to see them get drafted.
We were playing the Utah Jazz the night of the womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s championship game, but I did get to catch the National Semi-Finals. Man, those were some good games. Brittney Griner from Baylor is real good and a lot of fun to watch. But UConn had a better team and they prevailed. So it was something else to see them win two titles in a row and not lose a game in two years.
UConn is one of the top teams IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever seen. A 78-game winning streak??? ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s impossible to do. Definitely one of the top 10 teams IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever seen.
What did you all think? Let me know in the comments section.
