Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Saturday, July 04, 2009

Looks like Parker's first game back will be when LA hosts the Mercury.
"After watching her practice this week, it looks like she can play some minutes," coach Michael Cooper said. "It's a huge addition for us and a big game for her to come back. Obviously, she isn't 100 percent and we will take things slowly, but clearly Candace, even at less than 100 percent, is an incredible player."

Parker's return couldn't come at a better time for the Sparks, who were the preseason favorites to win the WNBA title.
The question is, will Taurasi be there or be suspended buy the league after being cited for driving under the influence.
After Friday's practice, Taurasi told media her DUI citation was "just something that's embarrassing and unfortunate for my family and the organization."

Taurasi said she couldn't comment on the specifics of the incident because it was a legal matter "but personally, I'm going to have to do some things to make it straight."
