Sheri Answers Your Questions

Lynx forward Sheri Sam took time to answer questions submitted by fans. Here's what she had to say.

June 19, 2003

What is it like to play with Katie Smith and Teresa Edwards? Do you think that coming to Minnesota was a good change for you? Go Lynx!
Christine (Lancaster, Ohio)

It's fun playing with two great players who know the game. I'm still getting adjusted to Minnesota, but so far, it's been good.

Who is the funniest person on your team?
Margaret (Rio Rancho, New Mexico)

It'd be close one between Tamika and Lynn. I'd say those two are probably the funniest.

You are a great addition to the Lynx. What do you like the best about Minnesota/Minneapolis? Have you had a chance to sight-see? Hope you continue to have a good season!
Lisa (Minneapolis)

I haven't really had a chance to get out much. Hopefully in the near future, when we have a few days off, I'll be able to get out a little more and learn about the city. Until then, I guess the best thing going on is the Lynx!

You are an amazing player! Would you consider making Minnesota your home during the offseason? Thanks and good luck — you have my vote for the All-Star Game!
Penny (St. Paul)

Right now in the offseason, I play in Europe, and I also have a home in California. I'm a southern girl from Louisiana, so I don't know if I could ever stay through the winters here in Minnesota!

Who is the most dangerous player on the court this season? Go Lynx!
Joshua (Plano, Texas)

There are a number of players this year that have stepped their game up. It's made the league a lot tougher. I'd have to say, just from looking at stats on the internet, that Shannon Johnson's having a great season. She's ranks high in scoring and in assists and is really dominating right now. She's pretty dangerous with the ball and without.

Sheri, you have been playing awesome so far this season. Who is your favorite team to play against?
Olivia (Minneapolis)

I don't really have a favorite team to play against, but I would probably have to say Connecticut, because I played with those guys and it's always good to go out there and play against them and just have fun.
