With the WNBA season well underway what better time for a look at the coolest team names in the league’s history. This list will include franchises that folded along with teams that are still active.
12. HOUSTON COMETS
Comment: The Comets were one of the Original Eight WNBA franchises and were the league’s very first dynasty. The Comets won the WNBA championship for the first four years of the league’s existence. To put that in perspective not even the NBA’s Jordan/Pippin Bulls or Kobe/Shaq Lakers were able to win four titles in a row. Continue reading
The SAN ANTONIO SILVER STARS (logo at left) were at 4-4 headed into last night’s road game against the SEATTLE STORM. The Storm were riding a 2-game winning streak, one of which was a toppling of WNBA defending champs the MINNESOTA LYNX, ending their 10-0 run to start the season.
Seattle withstood a furious 4th quarter rally by the Silver Stars and won 82-76. Tanisha Wright led the Storm to their 3rd straight win with Continue reading
The WNBA season’s only undefeated team suffered its first loss and the only winless team notched their first victory on the same day! The Seattle Storm (logo at left) ended the 10-0 run of the defending champion Minnesota Lynx in a 65-62 nailbiter.
Meanwhile the 0-9 Tulsa Shock won an 87-75 home stand against the Phoenix Mercury to at last log a win for the season. The Shock’s next game will be Wednesday night at the Los Angeles Sparks, who last night utterly demolished the visiting Washington Mystics in a 101-70 embarrassment.

THURSDAY JUNE 21ST RESULTS – Indiana Fever crushed the Continue reading
Right now in the WNBA it’s the Minnesota Lynx’s world and everyone else is just part of their win column it seems. The Lynx are the defending champions of the Association (I feel like Jim Rome when I say that), are the only undefeated team remaining this season AND they just tied the 2001 and 2003 Los Angeles Sparks for the best season-starting win streak at 9-0.
The basketball gods must love drama because we’ll have a whole week of buildup before Minnesota plays its next game this Friday night at the Phoenix Mercury. A win there will naturally give the 2012 Lynx sole possession of a new record for consecutive wins to start the season. Meanwhile this post will serve as a sort of “thread” for WNBA score updates throughout the week.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13TH SCORES – Chicago Sky (7-1, won 6 in a row) over the Continue reading
GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH – The NEW YORK LIBERTY registered their first road win of this young season last night with a 76-70 defeat of the WASHINGTON MYSTICS. It was the Liberty’s first win in Washington, DC since 2009, which is surprising since road teams often thrive in the Black Hole of Sports that the District of Columbia has become in recent years (except for the Capitals). New York improves to 3-5 after starting the year 0-5.
UNDERCOVER ANGEL – Angel McCoughtry, the undisputed leader of the ATLANTA DREAM, helped rally her team in Continue reading
I’ve always felt the Women’s National Basketball Association deserves more attention than it tends to get. Since the bulk of their season corresponds to the summer months when there are no college sports being played I decided they would be a perfect fit for Balladeer’s Blog.
If there is enough interest in these posts I’ll continue my WNBA coverage. First off, a look at the current standings and a shoutout to the Minnesota Lynx, who are the sole remaining undefeated team this season.
WESTERN CONFERENCE – 1. Minnesota Lynx 7-0 *** 2. Los Angeles Sparks 5-1 *** 3. San Continue reading
