If you log on to the Atlanta Dream's website, you will see a splash page with an ad to buy tickets against the Tulsa Shock and also with dates to see the Chicago Sky and the Phoenix Mercury which have Elena Delle Donne and Brittney Griner respectively. But in addition on the main site, the Dream sells a $100 two ticket package where fans can meet the Tulsa Shock guard post game. Even though I'm a fan of Diggins' game myself and look forward to seeing her in DC on June 30, this thing cannot go without a complaint.

During halftime of the Atlanta Dream's 97-47 win over Brazil last night, James Bowman wondered aloud in his live blog about who would be left off the final 11-player roster for this season.
7:58 PM: End of first half. Dream up 41-26. A friend of mine are trying to figure out the final eleven. Someone has to go home. But who? Clements? Kraayeveld? Swanier? I expect it won't be Bentley or Thomas.
The Dream have answered part of that today by waiving Blanche Alverson and Ketia Swanier, per a team release.
Last season with the Dream, Swanier wasn't particularly efficient as a distributor or scorer behind starter Lindsey Harding, including a career-low 16.7% 3-point percentage. But waiving Swanier assures that the Dream will be relying on young point guards to run their offense this year, whether that be Alex Bentley, Sydney Carter, or Jasmine Thomas.
And based on their current roster size, one of those three would still be logical to released.

Wows: She's extremely quick and had among the highest steal percentages in the nation. That allowed her to slice through the defense as well as any PG in this draft to set up teammates for shots and she can be deadly in transition, nice fit for Atlanta.
Wonders: She wasn't an especially efficient distributor and had a low assist ratio compared to past point guard prospects. How efficiently will she be able to run a pro offense?
Worries: The big knock on her is her scoring efficiency and her inconsistent jumper. At her size, that could make it very difficult for her to be an effective offensive player.

The 2012 Atlanta Dream team reached its fourth straight playoff appearance, losing in the first round to the eventual champion Indiana Fever. The Dream also faced some drama in the middle of the season when then-head coach Marynell Meadors was terminated soon after the Olympic break ended and was subsequently replaced by Fred Williams, who then suspended star swingman Angel McCoughtry, though she did return for the team's playoff run. With all that said, how will Coach Williams retool the roster?
