Fans Speak Out in the 2005 WNBA Draft Fan Forum
With the NCAA Tournament underway and the Draft just weeks away, the WNBA Draft Fan Forum is shaping up to be a free for all, with no one certain just who will be the top overall pick in this year's draft. There's only one way to find out, but until then, keep letting us know what you think.
Here are some of the comments fans have been saying in the Fan Forum:
More WNBA Draft Coverage
-Michael (Indianapolis, IN)
I think my team, the Mystics, need
a frontcourt player, but if I were the GM, Iwould pick Monique Currie out of Duke
to help out the backcourt. Put Monique at the point and Alana Bear at the two-guard.
-Tripp (Brockton, MA)
The Sparks need a relaible backup for Smooth. Our 2004
draft pick C. Thomas was great her rookie year and fans loved her. I'm looking
forward to seeing what she has added to her game this off season and we need a
coach. Like Houston we need some consistent talent coming in the game off the
bench. Our starters are great our problem is our bench. My top five selections:
McCarville, Irvin, Ely, Moore, Battle.
-Dee (Inglewood, CA)
Shock need a 3point shooting combo guard who can stretch the defense. If Chandi
Jones cant improve this season Detroit needs a backup plan like Dionnah Jackson
or Kristen Haynie.
-Andrew (Detroit, MI)
I think Houston needs a consistent point
guard like Temeka Johnson or Loree Moore and keep players healthy. I think Indiana
needs a wing player like Jacqueline Battest or Shyra Ely and a combo guard like
Tan White or Tanisha Wright. I think Sacramento needs better guard play off the
bench and in the starting position. I think Washington needs better depth and
to keep players healthy.
-Ashley (Buffalo, N.Y.)
As a Mystics fan
I would say that the list is too long!!!!
-Marlene (Hampton, VA)
Lynx need to figure out a way to keep Janel McCarville in Minnesota. Nicole Ohlde
is a great player, but levels of attendance and excitement at games would increase
dramatically were the team able to make some trades to retain Janel. And Janel
would be happier, because she would stay close geographically to her family, especially
her mother--who is fighting cancer.
-Julie (Minneapolis, MN)
is the Houston Comets! We have a great team but we are missing one thing, a true
point guard. My first and only pick for this position is Temeka Johnson. She is
an awesome player. She should be a high draft pick. I hope she will still be available
when the Comets pick at #5.
-Markerra (Lafayette, LA)
The Sting need
a power forward who can guard Lauren Jackson and Ford of Detroit and provide some
rebounding and scoring punch inside. Maybe Tillis of Duke could have done that
if we would have gotten her in last year's draft instead of Powell, maybe not.
Janell McCarville looks good this year to fill the bill for Charlotte.
-Curt (Gastonia, N.C.)
-Tristan (Tiplersville, MS)
I think that Milena Tomova deserves to be selection in
the Draft this year. She is a quality basketball player at FIU in Miami. Thank
Mitko (Sofia, Bulgaria)
I would love for the Liberty to get Liberty
center Katie Feenstra. Isn't that fate?
-Jeanne (Armonk, N.Y.)
