Only a rumor, but Swin Cash could be not with the team.
Where is she going? Who told you about this? A sports forum? A radio DJ? Your barber? Your Aunt Dorothy?
Last year, Swin was very disappointed with her minutes and relationship with your mentor. He was very frustrated with her play and publically called her out. After the finals, swin made hints toward not resigning. she is a free agent and not expected back. Next years starters will be Ford, Pearson, Braxton, Smith and my wifehttp://deannanolanfanclub.tripod.com/
Pierson > Cash
I hope Swin ain't back. She's not what she used to be after hurting her knee anyway.
Do the Shock have a draft pick?? We know Candace Parker will go number one and the LA Sparks have that pick.. Supposedly Sylvia Folkes of LSU is a top 3 pick too, even though she has sat out part of the season injured. Swin still has her swagger, but has lost those skills that got her there. Laimbeer may be better suited trying a sign and trade with some team out there that can post up and drive like Swin used to do. Somebody might bite because she still has some marketability in a small market WNBA city.
Swin is a beautiful sister though. I don't go for Tweety and her tattoos. Pierson's not as pretty, but her game screams "Detroit Basketball".
Whatever happend to Swin Cash's play? She used to be a superstar and degraded into an above average starter.
Swin is now part of Shock history like Ruth Riley as Laimbeer deals her away for the 4th pick in the upcoming draft. Shock trade Swin Cash to Seattle Also Indiana traded Tamika Catchings to the Connecticut Storm so their chief rival in the east goes from Indiana back to Connecticut...
OK, I know we can get a really good player with the 4th pick...BUT!!!.....Swin is supa-fine, I mean we had a pretty good looking WNBA squad here, nothing like Hoops & Eye Candy. The 4th pick better be a Baller and a Looker......If we could somehow/someway get Candace "Please Be KGreg Baby-Mama" Parker........aaaaahhhhh.
Face of the franchise is traded away after 10 solid years and championships. She hasn't been as quick since her surgery. Hopefully, she fares better than Ben Wallace who left under similar circumstances........
I could care less if they're the ugliest team in the league as long as they're competing for championships. Great move by Laimbeer.
Yea...participate with me and Chauncey in the all-star festivities and when we are done I am shipping your butt out o' town. 4 th pick in the draft sounds good. Bill didn't like Cash anyway. The Fever just got Katie Douglas, so they just got better. It will be interesting to see who the Shock get with the #4 pick.
Kgreg it would be nice to get Candace in a Shock uniform but she is a junior and I am not sure if she will opt out this year or not. If she does, the LA Sparks have the # 1 pick and believe me she would love to come out here for a modeling career too. Besides she is engaged to the guy with the big Forehead >Shelden Williams who was just traded to Sacamento Kings for Bibby, so that may influence her decision too head west...

Thanks OZ, I watched the first round and the girls seem excited about going to help their respective new teams. Basically, Bill swapped a partially mended knee 28 year old former champion in Cash for a 23 year old 2 time NCAA Womens champ who probably plays better defense than Cash and is better behind the arc. Second pick Natasha Humphrey looks good too. Good luck Shock, time to bring two more banners to the palace this summer
oops, missed Tasha. 5 picks in all. And a near champion team. It's gonna be a meatgrinder to make the team like 3 7th round picks on the Pats.
Did we draft any hot chicks?
Talked to Horn today and they expect Hornbuckle to start, and possibly Humphrey. They really like Hornbuckle hitting shots under pressure.
I am also wondering about this.
