The Russians Are Russian Is Coming

Tomorow (Sunday), the Mystics will make their first home appearance in nearly two weeks when they take on the Silvers Stars at 1 PM at the Phone Booth. San Antonio currently sits atop the Western Conference with a record of 11-6 and is led by that famous Russian star and soon to be Russian Olympian, Becky Hammonova, who hails from Moscow and who spearheaded her University of Kazakhstan team to a Steppes of Central Asia championship before joining the New York Liberty as an undrafted free agent.

Becky, shown here telling a BasketCases correspondent how much she is looking forward to playing in Beijing next month, very much impressed our reporter with her fluency in English (which, we concede, is much better than our command of Russian).

Sunday's game will be televised nationally on ABC, so if you can't make it to the Phone Booth, there's никакое оправдание no excuse for you to miss it!

Why is it I get the feeling you aren't exactly thrilled with Miss "Hammonova's" decision to suit up for Russia this summer?
