With the 2012 Olympics under way both USA men’s and women’s basketball teams continue to flourish as expected, a new task arrives for the women. The task is stopping the twin towers of Australia, 6′ 8″ Liz Cambage and 6′ 5″ Lauren Jackson. Both ladies are very skilled players, but there size is just untouchable. I watched a bit of their game against China today and I must say I was very impressed. I found my self rooting for the two Aussies as they seemed invincible. All the team has to do is dish it to Lauren or Liz, and they deliver 99.99% of the time. Am I saying that USA will lose? Of course not, I’m just saying that THEY WILL have problems. I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up rooting for Australia on Thursday.
The WNBA is not the place to look for big and strong basketball players, but new addition, Liz Cambage, plans to change all that.
Liz was selected 2nd overall in the draft by the Tulsa Shock this year, the reason? She is six foot eight inches tall. This is not a common for women so we all know she has gotta be a great b-ball player.
Although Cambage has become a major threat against any team, her team, the Tulsa Shock has had the worst WNBA season in history. Liz plans to not let her team have a season with only three wins again, but this might not be possible. The Tulsa originazation is not the smartest in the WNBA, this year they picked up fourty year old Sheryl Swoopes. Sheryl was one of the greatest players about five years ago, but now can hardly run down the court.
Tulsa sure is pretty dumb when it comes to some decisions, but drafting Liz Cambage was one of the best decisions a WNBA team has ever made.
