A Showcase Event

As far as I know, tickets were still available for Thursday’s showdown at Mohegan Sun Arena between the East-leading Sun and Los Angeles, the Western Conference’s top team. If I was a fan, I think it’d be worth shelling out a few bucks to these teams because there’s a good chance they’ll play again in a few weeks, although tickets will likely be a bit more expensive then.
Games like this make the schedule maker look smart, considering this pair could very well meet in the WNBA Finals. And what a series it would be.
Between the aging superstar Lisa Leslie, whose game indicates nothing has dropped off, and the Sun’s Katie Douglas, you’ve two of the league’s best MVP candidates. If there was a sixth man (person, if you prefer that title) award, the only real candidates would be Connecticut’s Asjha Jones and L.A.’s Chamique Holdsclaw. The list goes on and on.
It’s a shame the game isn’t being televised because this would be a great opportunity for the league to showcase itself.
