I think Thompson going to LA would be great. They would be unstopable in the league and would defiently bring home the or many championships. After all the battles that her and Lisa have had over the years, I think it would be great for them to finish their careers together. Imagine that lineup. Center-Lisa Leslie, Forward-Tina Thompson, Small Forward-DeLisha Milton, Shooting Guard-Marie Ferdinand, and Point Guard-Candace Parker. That is the Dream Team of the WNBA!!!

I think that the WNBA choosing to start the season off right with the Sparks taking on the Shock is a good move. Not only is it good for the ratings, but I think that my Sparks have a point to prove to Detroit. The Shock suck and have only one person on their team with talent. They only win games because they have a bullish-over tempered coach that preaches nothing but physicality and aggression. The referees allow them to play that way too. I think once the Sparks knock them back on their ass to start the season, they will tone that hype that their a good team, DOWN!!!!

hopefully the Sparks can sign Thompson, a lineup of Thompson, Parker and Leslie would be great. The team also needs a point guard.

Hopefully the Sparks can sign Thompson. A lineup with Thompson, Parker and Leslie on the floor at the same time would be awesome. The Sparks also need to sign a pure pooint guard

Wow, I've always admired Tina Thompson's game. She is an amazing player. For her to end her career in LA (with LL also ending her career in LA) that would be awesome! I was disappointed when the team folded but I must admit, if LA could get Tina Thompson that would be amazing! I agree that we need a point guard I would trade Johnson if I needed to in order to get a more adequate guard. Can we traide her and get Nikki Threesley back! Imagine that!
