Okay, So the Mystics Made a Coaching Change: Now What?

After demanding it for quite some time, in multiple posts and comments, Monumental Sports and Entertainment finally did the right thing and terminated Trudi Lacey yesterday. Before I get to...

We want to build teams in the NBA, NHL and WNBA that are generationally great. And by great I mean teams that: * Qualify for the playoffs year after year * Are in contention for a championship * Make the community and fan base proud * Are popular and can sell out every game * Ultimately win a ring That isn't easy. If you make the playoffs year after year, you have the opportunity to win a ring. It is obviously difficult to have all three teams in synch, but I would love to see the Capitals, Wizards and Mystics all participating in the playoffs in the same year at Verizon Center! ...The Capitals and the Wizards currently are in different stages of their development. The Caps have made the playoffs five years in a row. ...The Wizards are just entering the third year of a rebuilding project (more on that during our Wizards Q & A), but we probably have made the most amount of change in the shortest amount of time in the NBA of late. ...The Mystics altered course from a team built around youth to a more veteran team. The plan is not working as we thought. So we will have to work together and implement a plan that gets us back to being a playoff participant.

Washington Mystics owner Ted Leonsis reiterates that he wants all three teams he owns to be generational and specifically mentions the Mystics in an answer without being asked about the WNBA team specifically. This comes from Japers' Rink, the SB Nation Washington Capitals blog.

Thank you again Mystics for a win yesterday!

Thoughts of a Mystics Fan from the 2011 Season: Is Ownership Truly Committed to the Mystics?

After last offseason, this question went through my mind.  It is actually quite sad that I even have to ask that question, and it hurts more when the same owners of the NBA team I love also own the...

Here is what I do find NOT acceptable. If I hear a radio station sportscaster again say, "I didn’t even know the WNBA season had started"; when we buy advertising on that station; or we do promotions on that station for the team then we will simply take our business elsewhere. Pretty simply, we will spend our money where we get respect and a shared commitment to grow the game.
