After watching the WNBA best team (Mystics) demolish Atlanta today, it really hit me how bad the offenses are this year. Whether some of the key stars being out throughout the league is to blame, there is such a lack of creativity with offensive sets and so few players are able to create anything on their own.
Watching this Storm game. So tough to have money on these games. It's natural to expect execution like we get in the mens game, but the execution is so poor with the ladies. Any shot under duress is just pathetic to watch. Airballs, missed layups, terrible turnovers....
LAS VEGAS -- The WNBA is adding a few experimental rules to the All-Star Game on Saturday.
The teams will play with a 20-second shot clock instead of the usual 24. The shorter shot clock shouldn't be a major issue because it's an All-Star Game and the pace of play is extremely quick to begin with. The league also is adding a hockey-style live substitution rule. Each team will be allowed once per quarter to have a player sub in on offense. The substitution may be made only by the team on offense, and a player can't substitute for the person holding the ball. There will be a check-in spot near midcourt on the sideline where the player checking into the game must stand. The player leaving the court must tag the player coming in to prevent more than five players being on the court at any time.
