Exciting, physical game between the Fever and Mercury. Indiana won at the end, its first victory over a team with an above-.500 record.

Clark didn't shoot well but was 1 rebound shy of a triple-double. Taurasi, who famously warned Clark that "reality is coming" after Clark was drafted #1, finished with 19. They didn't get into it at all, but there were a couple of skirmishes and flagrant fouls involving other players.

Her teammates must’ve woken up and started fighting back for the hand that is making them all rich.

I like what the WNBA is doing as an All-Star Game format this season - the WNBA All-Star Team vs. the U.S. Olympic Women's Basketball Team.

Also, both Clark and Reese made the All-Star Team, so that's fun.

19 points (despite 3-12 from 3), 13 assists, 12 rebounds for Caitlin Clark in Indiana's upset over NY. First rookie with triple-double in WNBA history.

Meanwhile, Angel Reese has had double-doubles (points-rebounds) in 12 straight games, tying Candace Parker's league record.

Two damn good rookies!

Biggest home crowd ever for the Minnesota Lynx. First $1 million gate in franchise history, too, according to the Minneapolis newspaper.

All because of the obvious reason.

Caitlin Clark says, "You're Welcome!"

From The Athletic:

The WNBA’s next national media rights package has come into shape. The league is set to receive roughly $2.2 billion over the next 11 years in rights fees in its new deals — an average of $200 million a year — with an opening to earn more over that period, according to league sources briefed on the contracts.

https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/5642386/2024/07/16/wnba-media-rights-deal-negotiations/

The current deal pays the league about $50M annually, so the new deal will be worth 4-6 times that, depending on potential additional broadcast partners.

Players are about to get significant raises. It will be interesting to see those developments.

There is an article on the growing popularity of the WNBA in the latest Rolling Stone.

The players/teams just started riding charter jets to games.  Previously, the league made players fly commercial air like the rest of the world.

For you?  No, it doesn’t.  At all.  You’ve proven that on a daily basis.  So, either you’re a liar or just plain stupid.  Probably both.

Fercrissake, can all of you please keep the personal insults out of every friggin' thread you jump into? Rather than ban insults and politics, maybe Rocky needs to start a single thread for those things and then resolutely police it everywhere else.
