We Don't Care Who's Got Next, We Got Now!

After just eight seasons, WNBA superstar Chamique Holdsclaw has decided to call it quits. The former L.A. Sparks All-Star caught her team off guard when she retired just five games into the season. Holdsclaw quit because she "lost interest" and wanted to move on to other things. Apparently, this decision was made after she watched the first four game tapes of the season. I never thought that a sport could be so boring that the athletes playing in it would become just as bored as the fans. But, I guess when your sports yearly top 10 plays consist of "fancy" bounce passes and reverse layups where the player can't clear a telephone book on her vertical, I would get pretty bored as well. However, after some lengthy research, I discovered that woman's basketball is not completely useless.

I think the NBA should look into hiring some of these ladies to teach the Alonzo Mourning/Larry Johnson's of the world how to throw down. All that was missing from this brawl was a hunched up Van Gundy gnawing at the players ankles.
