The WNBA has gone through contracture so perhaps the talent has gotten better, but the play is definitely inferior; the game's slower and less shots taken. There are some very good players to watch though. If you missed the NY Liberty play yesterday, Cappie Pondexter is an excellent example. She's a very good PG who plays with alot of passion, passes well and has as quick a first step as I've seen (she'd take either Raptors' PG off the dribble).

I agree. Most women players have shorter professional lives and need to play year-round because of the low pay.
