I think what's happening here is that some of us are talking ourselves out of the fact that Gaines could take Della Donne...because we want The Sky to get her.

I have a hope for Della Donne...I just face the reality that Phoenix could take her and it's not as *crazy* a some think.

It makes perfect sense for Phoenix to take either one...and we have to face up to that!

I'll just be watching the draft and hope to hear...

"THE PHOENIX SUNS SELECT BRITNEY GRINER"...

I will then greatly exhale!

I disagree, and I'd be willing to bet on it.

I would hope the sky would not let go of Syl. this team has let way too many players leave. She's the face of the team and a lot of sky fans may become disenchanted.

Agree Mavcarter.

Did some of you not see the article the Sky staff just posted on the Sky's main site about Syl being their franchise player? Syl will be here for a long time! bet that.

All this trade Syl talk is ridiculous point, blank, period.

I guess we'll see.  Several things would have to happen, most of them highly unlikely.  1) Phoenix would have to take Della Donne, 2) The Sky would take Griner, 3) Pokey would have to think that neither Griner or Fowles could play the 4 and then finally 4) someone would have to put together an explosive package for a franchise player.  2 starters minimum.  That's a lot of ifs.  But if they all came in?

IF the deal made basketball sense and made the team better, they'd get over it.  They've gotten over trading Dupree, and they got jack squat in that deal.

They got jacked in the dupree trade. They got jacked in the tolliver trade. They should've held on to their draft pick last year. And you can only pray that they'll get it right this time. I also think the sky should give pokey the GM position only. And go hire a coach. Holding two title's doesn't work for everybody. she should concentrate on one role only. she's often times out-coached or just doesn't understand match-up strategies. either way. Whatever her blue print for success is. Its not working.

The first thing that immediately comes to view is the erroneous thinking that Syl cannot play PF...

*IF* Phoenix takes EDD...The Sky will take Griner...and they will keep her!!!

If Griner were to come in, especially if her team goes undefeated again in college and she gets regular Sports Center exposure, you would see a major influx of new fans to the Sky games.  If she were to perform up to her capabilities- no one would care one way or another if Syl was here or not.  Only time will tell if she is the real deal or not. 

You don't hear a word about Syl or the Sky on the Score or WMVP radio.  I'll bet if we get Griner, you will start to hear some Sky talk on these stations which means you have arrived as a team.

This thread titled is about the fans wanting Della Donne and Della Donne wanting the Sky. Let us keep the focus on that. Let us direct conversations away from Griner and more about EDD!
