The Sparks edged the mighty Lynx to win last season’s championship. It was an incredible series. Now, the Sparks are tasked with defending their title. This will prove to be tough as the Minnesota Lynx are looking to bounce back in a major way. The GM’s have already predicted that the Lynx will win the championship. I believe that, coupled with Candace Parker still not getting the respect she deserves will keep the fire burning for this tea. Also, some did not believe Ogwumike should not have been MVP over Tina Charles, that could also be added motivation. This is a new look team and some players are arriving late. The chemistry will not be there, but if anyone can get a team ready its Brian Agler. It is amazing how he got the team over the hump. I hope they do not regress. They did not necessarily get better because they lost a sharp shooter in Kristi Toliver, but Parker ad the reigning MVP can take this team a long way. It is very difficult repeat. It has not been done since the Sparks did it last in 01-02.
