I mean thats Steph Curry type distance there.   Also good at ball handling and passing. 

I have never seen a WNBA player like her before.  Her skills look better than more than half of NBA players  ;D

She doesnít compare to NBA players, or even D1 NCAA men, but sheís got crazy range.

and an extremely quick release on her shot after she catches the pass. i wish her lots of luck.

She obviously doesn't compare from a physical standpoint.  However from a skills standpoint she's better than some NBA players and better than a lot of college men players.

Make some calls and let's see it happen.

Does constantly denigrating the women's game make guys for more manly? I really don't get it.

As far as Sabrina, she's got some great skills and she'll definitely help the Liberty right away and she'll be great for the league overall. But she's definitely not the best talent the league's seen. Maya Moore, Candace Parker and Breanna Stewart are some of the best singular talents to come into the game.

Itís a real shame Liz Cambage has so many issues (Iíve run in mutual social circles with her, she was a mess there for a while), because I think she could have been great.

I do think Ionescu has heaps of talent, but Iím slightly concerned about where she takes her game from here. She didnít develop too much in her last two seasons IMO

Yeah you might think so...LOL

I was in a pick up game with Nancy Lieberman and Ronda Rampola , She was 6-3and 230 ish , looked like the hulk. one Saturday afternoon in Norfolk ,Va in their heyday .   These two ladies were tuff as most college linebackers and dirty as John Stockton .    Ronda flattened me with a pick on my back , she was built like Marcus Smart .  Then Nancy stepped on me as she dribbled by .  She was making step backs from all over court like Steph Curry .   I left feeling very unmanly and worse the wear and tear.  It was a sobering experience . I had new admiration for anybody willing to play full court with these professional women.

Liz Cambage is probably one of my favorite players to watch, she can be so charismatic and she shows real flashes sometimes of something special. I don't know if she'll ever put it all together though.

I agree about Ionescu possibly having peaked already. I'm really curious to see what she does in a new system with new challenges. I see her having a Skylar Diggins type of career where she'll be a perennial all-star as opposed to a bonafide MVP candidate, but because of the hype around her, people will see her as a bit of a disappointment.

Yeah, she really /should/ be completely unstoppable, but sheís just missing it. Whatever it is.

Thatís a good comp. I donít watch enough womenís to make a comparison (itís almost entirely not on TV in Aus). I just hope she doesnít end up like Evan Turner.

I always enjoyed watching another of your countrywomen, Lauren Jackson. She was pretty awesome.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

Yeah, she was great. Shame sheís had such debilitating injuries over the last 8 years. Still, 3 MVPís and 2 rings isnít too bad at all
