    I said all along that Delle Donne was the one I would draft, all around game, inside, 3 point shooting, dribble drive.... and she has size. Griner is great, but Delle Donne is a much better athlete and all-around versatile player.

    Delle Donne is averaging 20 pts a game
    Griner 15

    Though Britney's shot blocking skills are also a great weapon to have, but in the pros, you can't wander as much like she did in college.

    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    I dont know im no mulkey fan but i think it might be a bit extreme. If the penalty is usually just a fine, i dont see anything wrong with making the public decision that it is worth the fine to speak your mind. I also dont know that there should be game suspensions for that sort of thing either, refs already have too much protection imo just with the fines. It doesnt really penalize mulkey either as everyone's saying, but could have much more effect on a lower level coach.

    Including a probation (or warning of a probation for next time) might help. She needs to know that there will be escalating consequences. Then, they need to be enforced.

    And the refs have to get over their intimidation of her. She doesn't bite . . . at least not yet.

    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    Out of curiosity, what do you think Fenelly's penalty would've been had he done the exact same thing?

    First offense or second like this was for Mulkey?

    Everything is the EXACT same, except their names and their schools.

    Personally, I think Fenelly would've not only gotten a bigger punishment, but I also think the punishment would've come within a week after the tournament.

    Not sure why it took them two months to decide the fate of Mulkey

    I like that it took longer. If it happened right away when everyone was still thinking basketball it would have brought more attention to her beefs. Right now -- who even remembers?

    Agree that Delle Donne is the real deal and off to a great start as a pro. Griner was a big thing in college and is a good pro but she is not the hyped female version of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Heck, she is third in scoring and rebounding, not in the league, on her own team.
