From John Altavilla at the Hartford Courant: Sun's Whalen Focused On Game, Not Comparisons
The subject does not interest Lindsay Whalen. She just shrugs and says quietly that she isn't inclined to wonder if her status as the WNBA's transcendent point guard — or potential Olympic star — has been impacted by the immense popularity and talent of Sue Bird.
