Less then 10 games into however many games they play in this league, and already we've got ourselves one helluva season.
Jackie Moon does not proclaim himself to be a WNBA expert. In fact, JM has never seen one second of action in the best professional female hoops league in America.
But as our last President proved, you don’t have to be competent to criticize. Just ask any movie critic.
So here’s an up to the minute status of power rankings for the WNBA, for every team—that Jackie can remember.
1. Indiana Fever.
They have won a franchise record six in a row. That’s huge! How did they do it? With fundamentals. In each of the six games, they have consistently outscored the other team.
2. Minnesota Lynx
At seven, they have the most wins in the league. Jackie believes this also means they’ve clinched a top seed in the playoffs, and with one more win, get a spot in the finals and an extra time out. Don’t quote me on that part of the rulebook, but I think I’m right.
3. Seattle Storm
Not a lot of people know about the Storm, because they play in the media black hole of the Northwest. But as an avid women’s hoops fan, I can tell you they have that one stud lady who used to play for UConn. Or was it Tennessee? Maybe Rutgers.
You get the point.
4. (tie) Chicago Sky, Connecticut Sun
Or is it the Chicago Sun and the Connecticut Sky? Either way. Neither of these two have played well lately, thus the fall all the way down to the bottom of the league.
Unless I discover that the WNBA has more than five teams.
6. Detroit Shock
Seriously, how many freakin' teams in this league? This team hasn’t been the same since Bill Laimbeer left as their coach. Now it’s even more difficult to not watch them. Get it together Detroit. A win by the Shock could make up for that Wings loss in the finals. Detroit could use it.
7. However many teams are left in this league.
Bad defense, bad decision making, and not enough dunks. Honestly, you teams should be ashamed of yourselves. Your play is almost making your fans and relatives (wait, that’s the same group) not want to come and watch anymore. I mean, you can’t even scalp tickets for these games (i.e. you couldn’t pay someone to go).
That’s the latest rankings. I hope I wasn’t too detailed.
I think I speak for America (or at least the part of it that watches sports) when I say the WNBA playoffs can’t get here fast enough. That way it can end sooner, too.
Keep it up ladies. Really enjoying the basketball quality.
