The WNBA Players Association Is Contesting Riquna Williams's Domestic-Violence Suspension

On Tuesday, the WNBA issued a statement announcing that Los Angeles Sparks guard Riquna Williams would be suspended for 10 games as a result of an incident of suspected domestic violence in December, which led to Williams’s arrest on April 29 of this year. Williams allegedly broke into a home in Palm Beach County, Florida, attacked her ex-girlfriend, Alkeria Davis, and then threatened Antonio...

WNBA's Dallas Wings Fire Head Coach After Argument With Team President

WNBA's Dallas Wings Fire Head Coach After Argument With Team President

The Dallas Wings are three games under .500 after losing eight straight. They still have a shot to get the WNBA’s last playoff spot, but they’ll have to reach that goal under a new head coach, because their old one just got canned.

After the Wings’ 93-80 loss to the Washington Mystics on Sunday night, Dallas head coach Fred Williams was seen in a shouting match with team CEO and president Greg...

Despite a broken nose, some poor early shooting, and a terrifyingly talented underdog opponent that wouldn’t give up, Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird became absolutely deadly when it mattered most. Tonight, in the deciding game of their semifinal, Bird buried the Phoenix Mercury with just a flat-out disgusting...

Elena Delle Donne Had An Awful Knee Injury At The Worst Possible Time

Elena Delle Donne Had An Awful Knee Injury At The Worst Possible Time

Elena Delle Donne was killing it for the Washington Mystics tonight, following up a destructive Game 1 by putting up 27 points, 14 boards, and six assists in Game 2 of her team’s series against the Atlanta Dream.

Unfortunately, with 3:04 remaining and the Mystics leading by two, Delle Donne injured her left knee with a really awkward bend on a drive to the basket and left the game for good....

Diana Taurasi Isn't Done Yet

Diana Taurasi Isn't Done Yet

Fourteen years ago, when Diana Taurasi began her WNBA career with the Phoenix Mercury, she was fresh off a legendary career at UConn, where she helped lead the Huskies to three straight NCAA championships on top of her individual awards. She was also in the midst of training with the U.S. Olympic team, playing alongside women’s basketball royalty that included all-stars like Sheryl Swoopes,...

Elena Delle Donne Balled The Fuck Out On One Leg To Keep The Mystics' Postseason Alive

Elena Delle Donne Balled The Fuck Out On One Leg To Keep The Mystics' Postseason Alive

A standout playoff performance from a former MVP in a do-or-die game isn’t exactly outside of the realm of normalcy—but it is if that player only has one knee at full strength.

Despite suffering a horrific knee injury in Game 2 , Washington Mystics star Elena Delle Donne entered Game 4 of the best-of-five series as a starter with a brace that immediately reminds one of what J.J. Watt wears on...

Former NBPA Union President And New Sparks Head Coach Derek Fisher Joins Up With A Shady Luxury Lending Outfit

Longtime NBA guard, controversial Players Association president, and failed Knicks coach Derek Fisher has reportedly joined up with a shady alternative lender that targets professional athletes and other “high-net-worth individuals and families” who find themselves challenged by the “burdensome and invasive” process of traditional money lending.

I’m no banker, but Luxury Asset Capital’s model...

Elena Delle Donne Will Somehow Start Game 4 After Nasty Knee Injury

Elena Delle Donne Will Somehow Start Game 4 After Nasty Knee Injury

Elena Delle Donne is listed as a starter for the Washington Mystics in their do-or-die Game 4 semifinal matchup against the Atlanta Dream Sunday afternoon. I am sure you will join me in saying please don’t make me watch the video of her knee bending backwards like al dente linguine again.

Delle Donne was killing the Dream in Game 2 Tuesday night when she took a bad step while driving in...

The Washington Wizards announced Tuesday that Washington Mystics guard Kristi Toliver would join the team’s staff as an assistant coach for player development.

The Storm Snapped The Mystics In Half To Become WNBA Champs

The Storm Snapped The Mystics In Half To Become WNBA Champs

The Seattle Storm completed their sweep of the Washington Mystics on Wednesday night, outclassing their opponent on the road and winning 98-82 to capture their first WNBA title since 2010 and third championship overall.

Game 3 had the occasional tight moment—mainly when the Mystics went on a 16-3 run at the beginning of the fourth quarter to cut their deficit to five. But eight straight...

WNBA Players Aren't Actually Trashing NBA Players, But They Are Fighting For Fair Pay

WNBA Players Aren't Actually Trashing NBA Players, But They Are Fighting For Fair Pay

This week, the internet passed around several quotes by WNBA stars who called out their NBA counterparts and asked for better pay. Those quotes are all very fake. Supposedly Dallas Wings player Skylar Diggins-Smith bagged on LeBron James for being unskilled, and Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner asked for “more respect” while taking a shot at “mediocre players” like Tyler Johnson for...

Diana Taurasi Just Doesn't Lose When It Matters

The Phoenix Mercury took down the Connecticut Sun 96-86 on the road Thursday night, advancing out of the single-elimination stage of the WNBA playoffs. Though the final score makes it appear as if the Mercury won with a little bit of comfort, their 10-0 run in the final two minutes gave them the only breathing room of what was otherwise an extremely tight, back-and-forth game, as the superb...

The WNBA's Weekday Afternoon Games Aren't As Weird As They Look

The WNBA's Weekday Afternoon Games Aren't As Weird As They Look

Of the many responses to Elizabeth Cambage’s historic 53-point performance with the Dallas Wings on Tuesday afternoon, one of the most common dealt not with the performance itself, but the Tuesday afternoon part. Why, people quite reasonably wondered, was one of the great moments in league history taking place while most people are at work?

The answer is the league’s unofficial “camp days,” a...

Las Vegas Aces Forfeit Game After 26 Hours Of Travel

With just seven games left in the regular season, in the middle of a playoff push, the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces have had to forfeit a game against the Washington Mystics that was supposed to be played on August 3. The Aces were backed into this corner by a hellish travel experience and some unforgiving decision-making by the league.

After their loss at home in Las Vegas on August 1, the Aces...

Tina Charles Came Home To Win A Title. Instead, She Wound Up In Exile.

Tina Charles Came Home To Win A Title. Instead, She Wound Up In Exile.

You can understand Tina Charles’ season with the New York Liberty, her hometown team, by watching the final two possessions of last Thursday’s game against the Washington Mystics.

The Liberty trailed, 77-75, with ten seconds to go. Charles received the entry pass just inside the paint, guarded by a pair of Mystics, and 6'5" Elena Delle Donne came over to make it a trio. It didn’t...

Liz Cambage Isn't Cooling Down Anytime Soon

Liz Cambage did not have any trouble coming up with an encore. In her first game after her record-setting 53-point performance on Tuesday , Cambage dominated again for the Dallas Wings on Thursday. In a 90-81 win against the Washington Mystics, Cambage put up 35 points on 31 shot equivalents, pairing that with a game-high 17 boards. Those 88 total points across two games are also a new WNBA...

The Connecticut Sun probably thought they would be the only ones with a buzzer beating opportunity as the clock wound down in their 83-83 game with the Atlanta Dream tonight. But they didn’t factor in the otherworldly range of Dream guard Tiffany Hayes.

As the Sun’s Jasmine Thomas tried to drive the lane and break the...

Liz Cambage Goes Off For WNBA-Record 53 Points 

Liz Cambage Goes Off For WNBA-Record 53 Points 

Dallas Wings center Liz Cambage made history this afternoon when she hung 53 points on the New York Liberty. Not only was that tally over half of her team’s 104 points, it’s the most in a single game in WNBA history. Cambage shot 17–of–22 from the field, 4–of–5 from three, and made 15 of her 16 free throws. She also added 10 rebounds and five blocks for good measure in what wound up being a...

Don't Leave Elena Delle Donne This Wide Open

The Mystics squashed the Liberty in dramatic fashion on Thursday night, thanks to an Elena Delle Donne buzzer beater. She got the shot off thanks to a brilliantly drawn inbounds play, but also because the Liberty played some atrocious defense that left Delle Donne with an acre of space at the three-point line. (The scorebug in the video below is crappy, but there were 0.6 seconds left when...

The WNBA Is Standing With Planned Parenthood

The New York Times reported today that the Trump administration plans to implement a rule banning reproductive healthcare providers, like Planned Parenthood, from getting certain federal funds if they provide abortion referrals. Hours later, WNBA President Lisa Borders put out this statement:
