WNBA All-Star Game starts with players running wrong way

WNBA All-Star Game starts with players running wrong way

This day, which saw Team Parker win, 119-112, over Team Delle Donne, will be remembered in broad strokes, more than for its specific moments, as most All-Star games are. "I really appreciate how you people celebrated these awesome women behind me". "But for us to have four all-stars on this team, on our home floor, in front of these unbelievable fans, it meant everything". She also hoped to see some trash talk among Lynx teammates. Team Parker has seven players from the West and three from the East, with four guards and seven forwards.

"From a talent and product standpoint, the league has probably never been better", Bird said. The league's talent pool is as deep as it's ever been, and ESPN reported that ratings for nationally televised games are up 38 percent over previous year. "The players as individuals play well".

It was more of the same when we caught up with her towards the end of postgame media availability.

"For whatever reason this year, I feel more celebratory and excited to be here", Moore said.

Mars Close Approach: How to view the celestial event
Though Mars is closest to the Earth in 15 years is a phenomenon for our generation, it is nowhere as big a deal as it was in 2003. On this night, Mars came strikingly close to Earth on its orbit, approaching within 35.8 million miles of our home planet .


The Lynx average 9,935 fans per game, second-best in the 12-team league.

A boisterous crowd of 15,922 watched history from the start - with a collection of players that included six WNBA MVPs - to finish, when Maya Moore became the second player in history to be named the game's Most Valuable Player for the third time and set the league record for scoring in the All-Star game with an 18-point, 8-rebound, 6-assist game that was a flawless representation of the versatile, unselfish all-around star that Moore is.

The game tipped off from Target Center in Minneapolis seemingly without a hitch.

"I hope all the all-stars for once enjoyed not being booed", Moore joked.

Defender David Luiz returns to Chelsea ‘to stay’
Sarri is keen to further bolster his squad and has requested the Chelsea board to complete the signing of the Uruguayan. Chelsea remain interested in Daniele Rugani as Sarri eyes more reinforcements.


"They're so loyal. They come to the games, and they come to compete, too", Taurasi said. "They are all still playing so great, not playing like their ages, you know?" That's what every franchise and every team strives to get to.

In addition to Moore's solid play for Team Parker, Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky scored 18 points and Skylar Diggins-Smith of the Dallas Wings added 17 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists.

"They're a great team", Toliver said. "In the WNBA we have fans, and even if they're against you, they rally behind their team".

Four players from the hometown Minnesota Lynx were selected for the game, two on each roster, creating a festive atmosphere with the crowd cheering loudly for both sides throughout the game.
