    It's live! Like a few hours ago or something, in case you've missed the heart-stopping action, here's how the first round went:

    Really surprised Shekinna Stricklen went as high as #2, had her #35 on my board. Thought the Phoenix Mercury had a great pick in Samantha Prahalis at #6. Surprised Damiris Dantas dropped all the way to #12, I would have drafted her #1 overall based off her cool sounding name.

    SECOND ROUND UNDERWAY!!

    I want Cleveland to bring a team back so we can draft Skylar Diggins. She'd bring all celebrities here.

    Some players also earn sponsorships (Candace Parker and no one else haha). I'm pretty sure that she has a multimillion dollar contract with them

    When are we going to start the thread "A closer look at Brittney Griner"? I heard he is going to declare. Might go higher than Davis.

    My mom and sister are the crazy feminist type and they tried to indoctrinate me at a young age. They used to tell me the Rockers were more fun than pro sports because the players actually tried hard and had good fundamentals. Once I grew up and started thinking for myself I realized that was just the party line for, "nobody can dunk."


    Edit: I see what a good job they did, just realized that I subconsciously don't even consider the WNBA to be a professional league. :chuckles:
