One thing women are known for is persistence – you know, the old “nag, nag, nag.” But for basketball lovers, the persistence of the WNBA shines through the gloom brought on by the men’s NBA league. You see, not only are the women not embroiled in labor disputes, the women play through the summer!
The Minnesota Lynx (who even took time out to walk the catwalk at the Mall of America’s third annual “Catwalk for a Cure” event) are ranked No. 1 with their current 16-5 record, including a 9-game win streak. The Indiana Fever (Yay! Indiana!) team is ranked No. 2 with a slightly less stellar 16-7 record. Their defense is rated second best in the league.
Women’s sports has always gotten a boost when the men’s teams failed to make the call and this year could see the same situation come about if the NBA player lockout continues and the contract negotiations aren’t settled. Already, many of the players are looking to play in Europe and beyond so who knows what the final consequences will be.
