    The 3 basketball banners at Talking Stick Resort arena are all Mercury,
    as I was reminded when attending the Bob Seger concert recently.

    With our three All Stars (Diana, Brittney and DeWanna) still intact,
    and help for Brittney at backup Center, I have high hopes for our
    Mighty Mercury to have a successful and entertaining season.

    I wish Grandmama could come back and lead the cheering,
    although she may no longer be able to jump on the scorers
    table after victories at her age. :)

    Well the Suns, after continued tanking, get only the #6 pick in the NBA draft.

    So it is up to the Mercury and D-backs to play winning ball for our annual satisfaction.

    DeWanna Bonner will be called upon to step up for DT as she has, and delivered, in the past.

    But we will still be without #1 of our top 3 and the WNBA's G O A T. Putting more pressure
    on Brittney, who has always been inconsistent.

    With Diana and DeWanna getting on in years, it is a shame that we will have a half a season
    of our Big 3 not together.

    Griner HAS to start making the transition to making this her team. She has to become more consistent.

    I like it, we needed an influx of some young blood. Mitchell will be missed but she became expendable last year when we got January.

    The season begins. The Mercury with an 11-point lead, but Seattle, with tight defense, comes back to tie it at the half.

    DeWanna is missing shots, trying too hard to carry the team. But the Mercury rookies look good as backup and for
    the future. Brittney is inconsistent, as always.

    After a good first quarter, 2nd quarter was blah. 3rd quarter also not going well.

    After Seattle opened up a bigger lead, the Mercury cut it back to 8 after 3 quarters.

    Damnit, Griner needs to be dominate, but hardly ever does. Which makes it easy for
    Seattle to pressure Bonner. Others have to step up.

    Seattle is playing great defense. And Bonners '3' cuts it to a 5-point game. She has
    scored the last 12 for Phoenix. She now has 26.

    It would be great if they could put it together for the final 8 minutes.
