With WNBA Training Camp set to open tomorrow, it was "Media Day" yesterday for the 2009 Mystics, as players, coaches, and front office personnel posed for "glam" shots and talked with reporters.
And the extra competiveness of training camp hasn't been lost on the players either. Example: this from Mo Currie . . .
". . . . you've got to challenge yourself. That's the way you get better. And then to know your job is on the line too, I know that will bring out a lot more in people who are just comfortable in their situation."That's right, Mo. Don't let up and don't get too comfortable . . . there's a certain rookie who could be gaining on you!
In the Washington Post, Kathy Orton's article focuses on the decision by former Mystic Chasity Melvin to return to a team that's had little in the way of success. Chas tells Orton that Angela and Julie wooed her back to the Mystics because "I like their goals and their vision for the team."
