Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Mechelle revisits the 'claw saga: Silver Stars sign Holdsclaw for one year - She isn't a good fit for other teams, but San Antonio has nothing to lose
On Friday afternoon, I chatted with San Antonio's Becky Hammon during an online radio show on which I contribute here in Kansas City. Hammon was talking about how it can be a bit worrisome to look around the league at the talent on other teams. And so she tries to avoid doing that. Instead, she said she focuses on the strengths the Silver Stars have.

But from my view, player for player, the Silver Stars' season-opening roster did not seem to measure up to the projected top teams in the WNBA. So if there was a franchise that looked as if it could take a chance on adding talent, San Antonio was it.
