    Harding traded

    The Mercury then traded the rights to Harding to the Minnesota Lynx for forward/center Tangela Smith.

    I honestly hate to indulge in schadenfreude, but I'll admit I'm tickled that Latta didn't go in the top 10.

    I had seen a draft projection with her going #2 to SA Silver Stars. I think Detroilet is a better fit for Ivory.

    Lindsey will enjoy Minnesota (my homeland), and vice versa! And Alison will get to play closer to home.

    Omg!

    latta is going to be coached by Bill Laimbeer.

    Yeah, Bill will surely clean up her punk-a** behavior.

    WNBA Draft 2007

    Forgive me if this has already been mentioned, but I am thrilled that Harding and Bales went #1 and #9 respectively in the WNBA draft! Despite the somewhat precipitous departure from the NCAA tournament, these two seniors had a stellar season, and I'm glad that they have been recognized like this at the next level.

    Of course, I am also delighted that both went before Ivory Latta , one of the few basketball players of either gender that I find extraordinarily impossible to like.

    Go DEVILS!!!!!!

    My thoughts exactly.

    As a Detroit Shock fan, I am sick to my stomach at the thought of seeing Latta in a Shock uniform. Not to mention that Latta was their only pick of the draft. Burnspbesq is right...Laimbeer will knock that ****-eating grin right off her face on Day 1.

    Oops, my bad: I forgot to turn on the sarcasm indicator. I no more expect Laimbeer to clean up Latta's act than I expect Karl Rove to testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee (i.e., not at all). Teams are reflections of their coaches, and Ive-wee is the perfect embodiment of Laimbeer's attitude, which doesn't seem to have changed one tiny little bit since he was a pasty-faced sophomore at Notre Dame. Did he and Bilas go to the same high school? That's hard to fathom.
