We have Good News . . . and we have Bad News.

For former Terrapin, Shay Doron, the month of May began on a very high note. Shay and her teammates on Elizur Ramla prevailed over Raanana Hertzeliya in the finals of the Israeli Championship. In typical unselfish fashion, Shay had this to say after her team secured the victory:

“Luckily for us it all finally came together at the end. I told my teammates before the game: ‘I don’t care if I don’t score at all tonight as long as we win the championship’. It’s an amazing feeling, the best feeling in the world. To win like this, it’s sweet. It’s something else.”
Of course, Shay was not held scoreless; in fact, she contributed 15 points to her team's winning effort. Congratulations to Shay on another important championship!

Unfortunately, the news today out of the New York Liberty training camp was not what Shay or her fans were hoping to hear:

Well, the writing was on the wall, that's for sure. Now I have a team to root against. Watching a player with her passion on the bench last season was so frustrating. Not being as educated about the workings of the WNBA as WCBB what does this mean for Shay? Is it too late for another team to pick her up?

Not to say it never happens, but at this late stage in the WNBA preseason, the odds aren't good for a waived player to get picked up by another team. Let's hope Shay is the exception.

I guess we don't need her?

The difficulty is finding a roster spot for another SG. The Mystics already have Alana and Coco at that position. That makes it tough for Shay.
