I believe chamique holdsclaw should be a starter next to lauren jackson. deanna
nolan should start along with nykeshia sales. there's no way michelle snow should
statr over lisa leslie or yolonda griffith. sue bird and dana taurasi is the ultimate
-Don, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Have people been following the
WNBA this year??? The reason I ask is that Swin Cash has received an outstanding
number of votes for a player that has not been playing. Don't get me wrong I think
she is an outstanding athlete and healthy quite possibly the best at her position.
With the pool of talented women in the league to choose from I think it is a shame
to vote for someone that at this time does not deserve the votes and snub those
-Gina, Kankakee, IL
I enjoy voting, but it's frustrating
to see ballot stuffing keeping the season's best players out of the starting lineups.
-EO, Granada Hills, CA
I do believe that
Alana Beard belongs at the 2005 WNBA allstar game. She's a all around player.
She's a great scorer and a great defensive player. She will be one of the best
player in the WNBA in years to come. I really hope she will be an allstar.
Ticha Penicheiro should definitely be in it this year b/c
you guys got caught up in all the popularity with Sue Bird and now Diana Taurasi
- no offense to them, they are both GREAT players, and of course they score a
lot more than TP does. When I vote, I don't vote for my favorite players because
everyone else is already going to vote for them so I vote for the other players
who are also good but don't get too much recognition. All the best to the 05 All
-Sanela, Bronx, N.Y.
I think Nancy and or Doris have
it about right. The All Star game is about players who have excelled in the first
half of the season. Alot of fans vote for their favorites despite those players
not having a great first half, or not having played a single game. What is best
for the WNBA is for the best players to be in the All Star Game!
Lauren Jackson is the OMEGA of womens basketball
Well, I am looking forward to seeing Diana Taurasi and
Delisha Milton-Jones after what happend in Tuesdays game
Swoopes there it is and Holdsclaw on the same team. It's like Jordan
-Pippen, Tampa, FL
Dawn Staley and Allison Feaster
absolutely deserve to go to the All Star Game. Dawn is the coach, captain and
leader of the Charlotte Sting with incredible stats. Allison Feaster, if surrounded
by a better cast of players, would be off to a much hotter start. Defensively
Allison is always called on to guard the most offensive aggressive opponent and
still manages to lead the team in scoring. It's Allison's turn to be recognized
for the outstanding player she is.. on both ends of the court and with her intangibles
of heart and forever being a warrior.
-Margaret, Charlotte, NC
voted for Becky Hammon because of her work ethic and her ability to make the most
out of what she has been given. She is a great leader and ammbasador for the WNBA
and sports in general!
-Jennifer, New York
I can't believe the
"experts" didn't pick Becky Hammon as a Guard for the East. She seems to be overlooked
for most of her career. As a long time UCONN fan, it is sometimes hard for me
to admit she probably has the best skills in the game. Offensively she is deadly
inside and out, her passing is unbelieveable and her leadership is unmatched.
I was always amazed that her old coach failed to notice the Liberty would always
do better when she was in. The Liberty should be using their superior perimeter
game, with a hosts of great outside shooters. It now appears Beck's points now
come only on broken plays or on breaks.
-Pat, Hartford, CT
we should include the Rookie of the year and send a message to all Rookies. Send
Tameka Johnson, Mystics to the All Stars. She is the hardest playing young leader
and her stats speak for themselves. Thanks.
-Melita, Alexandria, VA
am definitely looking forward to seeing my favorite player, Alana Beard. She can
do it all, offensively and defensively. I think she and Tweety will be awesome
in the back court for the East. With Catchings, Taj and Ruth, they can compete
with the West All Stars.
I am a huge fan of the
Houston Comets' Sheryl Swoopes. I love the way she plays the game. She definitely
deserves to be were she is now as far as leading all players in All Star Balloting.
She has play exceptionally well thus far this season. Go Comets!!!
or Sherman, Natchez, MS
I voted for chamique Holdsclaw because i believe
that right now she is the MVP of WNBA. She is playing like the best player too.
I also voted for deanna nolan because she brings her "A" game every night. i Voted
for Yolanda Griffith as the best center right now, and i also voted for Temeka
johnson because she is my favorite rookie.
-EB, Baltimore, MD
Bird, no doubt the best point in the league, has a huge impact on the team without
having to score.
-Kondor, Bolingbrook, IL
I voted for Penny Taylor
because she is important to the Phoenix Mercury team. She doesn't get much attention
because of Diana Taurasi.
-Cassie, Olmsted Falls, OH
and Sheryl Swoopes deserve to be in the WNBA All-Star Game every year they're
in the league. These women have won WNBA titles and Olympic gold medals, along
with Dawn Staley, playing against the best competition the world has to offer.
-Edrick, Jackson, MS
My #1 vote is Lisa Leslie - she is by far
the most complete player in the WNBA. Ms Swoopes is the 2nd best in my book and
gets my vote every time....
-Wanda, Baton Rouge, LA
I voted for
every member of the connecticut sun i could, because they are a complete TEAM........period...NEXT.
new orleans, LA
I voted for Taj McWilliams Franklin because she is playing
awesome ball and is on the team w/ the best record in the league. I think she
has been overlooked for players who are popular. She deserves to play. I am surprised
at all the votes Swin received since she has not played this season.
Tamika Catchings deserves to be an all-star because she
does everything for the Fever. She scores, rebounds, passes, and plays great defense.
She is the most complete player in the league. She is also a great leader for
the Fever and is a big reason why they are doing so well! Go Fever!
I voted for Dawn Staley, Tamika Catchings, Nikki Teasley,
Sheryl Swoopes, Ruth Riley, Ticha Penichero, Sheri Sam as a write in Yolanda Griffiths,
Becky Hammons, Tangela Smith, and Chamique Holdsclaw. Not only are they all-stars
on the court, but they are all-stars off the court. They are all great role models
for children and women of all ages who have dreams of becoming professional atheletes.
Keep up the good work ladies and good luck on the rest of your seasons.
