Um, hello! The draft is going on right now.

I knew Maya Moore would be #1, Minnesota is gonna be good!

First round:

Round 1

* 1. Maya Moore [+] Minnesota Lynx
* 2. Liz Cambage [+] Tulsa Shock
* 3. Courtney Vandersloot [+] Chicago Sky
* 4. Amber Harris [+] Minnesota Lynx
* From CT
* 5. Jantel Lavender [+] Los Angeles Sparks
* 6. Danielle Robinson [+] San Antonio Silver Stars
* 7. Kayla Pedersen [+] Tulsa Shock
* From PHX
* 8. Ta'Shia Phillips [+] Atlanta Dream
* 9. Jeanette Pohlen [+] Indiana Fever
* 10. Alex Montgomery [+] New York Liberty
* 11. Victoria Dunlap [+] Washington Mystics
* 12. Jasmine Thomas [+] Seattle Storm

Chicago is idiotic to take Vandersloot. Sure I love her last name, but she's a big time BUST! Indiana got a steal at #9, she should have went #2 IMO.

And I can't fucking believe Harris went top five. I bet she'll have a good rookie showing, get knocked up, and come back and score 2 points a game. Fucking whore.

She's just a hoe. I wouldn't want her near the sky.

From wiki on The Sky's first rounder.

By her own admission, Vandersloot came to Gonzaga as a shy freshman. During that first season, Graves suggested that she call the school's greatest point guard in history for advice—Hall of Famer John Stockton. Vandersloot would recall that it "took her a couple of weeks to build up,"[2] and when she finally called Stockton for the first time, she hoped that she would reach his voice mail so she wouldn't have to talk.[8] Vandersloot eventually worked with Stockton throughout her Gonzaga career.[2]
As a freshman in 2007–08, she was the West Coast Conference newcomer of the year and named to the 10-member All-WCC first team after averaging 10.3 points, 5.7 assists, and 1.9 steals per game entering the WCC tournament, finishing in the top five in the WCC in the latter two categories while the Zags went 13–1 in conference play and earned the tournament's top seed.[9] However, the Bulldogs lost in the WCC final to San Diego[10] and ultimately missed out on the NCAA Tournament, playing instead in the WNIT. They defeated UC Davis in the first round[11] before falling to Colorado in the second round.[12]
Year Team Record (WCC) Games Played/Started Minutes/Game Points/Game Rebounds/Game Assists/Game Turnovers/Game Assist/Turnover Ratio Steals/Game
2007–08[13] 25–9 (13–1) 34/27 28.3 10.6 3.9 5.6 3.0 1.85 1.8
In her 2008–09 sophomore season, she set a school record in assists with 239;[2] at the end of the regular season, her average of 7.3 per game led the conference, and she was also third in the conference in scoring at 16.4 per game.[14] Vandersloot won the first of what would be three WCC Player of the Year awards.[14] The Bulldogs went on to win the WCC Tournament, with Vandersloot named tournament MVP.[15] In the NCAA Tournament, the Zags defeated Xavier for the program's first NCAA Tournament win[16] before narrowly losing in the second round to Pitt.[17]
Year Team Record (WCC) Games Played/Started Minutes/Game Points/Game Rebounds/Game Assists/Game Turnovers/Game Assist/Turnover Ratio Steals/Game
2008–09[18] 27–7 (12–2) 32/31 32.8 16.4 4.1 7.5 3.8 1.99 2.2
As a junior in 2009–10, Vandersloot led Division I in assists, averaging 9.4 per game,[19] while leading the Zags to an unbeaten record in conference play.[20] During that season, she broke her own school record for assists in a season with 321,[19] and also broke the Gonzaga and WCC records for career assists.[2] Vandersloot was again named both WCC Player of the Year[20] and WCC Tournament MVP[21] while leading the Bulldogs to a second consecutive WCC Tournament title. In the NCAA Tournament, Vandersloot led the Zags one round farther than in 2009, upsetting #2 seed (and 2011 champion) Texas A&M before losing in the Sweet Sixteen to the Xavier team they had knocked out the year before.[16]
Year Team Record (WCC) Games Played/Started Minutes/Game Points/Game Rebounds/Game Assists/Game Turnovers/Game Assist/Turnover Ratio Steals/Game
2009–10[22] 29–5 (14–0) 34/34 32.6 14.1 3.8 9.4 4.3 2.21 3.6
Her senior year at Gonzaga, 2010–11, can be summed up as a season of milestones. She led the WCC in both scoring and assists on the way to a second straight unbeaten season in conference play.[23] Vandersloot was named WCC Player of the Year for an unprecedented[2] third time.[23] The Zags again won the WCC Tournament, and Vandersloot was named tournament MVP for the third straight time,[24] also becoming the first women's player in WCC history to win that honor three times.[2]
In the NCAA Tournament, the Bulldogs were a #11 seed, but had the advantage of playing their first-round and potential second-round games at their home court of McCarthey Athletic Center. They would take full advantage of their home court in the first two rounds. The Zags, seeded #11 in their region, opened the tournament with a 92–86 upset of Iowa, with Vandersloot scoring a career-high 34 points.[25] In their second-round game against #3 seed UCLA, Vandersloot finished with 29 points and 17 assists, one assist shy of the record for a Division I tournament game, as the Zags took down the Bruins 89–75. During that game, she became the first player in Division I history to amass 2,000 career points and 1,000 career assists.[3] The win advanced them to the Sweet Sixteen for the second straight year, and to a regional tournament that would be held less than two miles (3 km) from the Gonzaga campus at Spokane Arena.
During the Bulldogs' next game, a 76–69 win over Louisville, Vandersloot broke the Division I women's record for assists in a season previously held by Suzie McConnell. She finished with 29 points, 7 assists, and 7 steals as the Zags became the lowest-seeded team ever to reach a regional final in the women's tournament.[26] Their tournament run, and Vandersloot's college career, would end one game later as Stanford would defeat the Zags 83–60. While she finished with 26 points, only four came in the second half.[27] In addition to her other milestones during the season, she also broke the Gonzaga single-season scoring record.[28]
Year Team Record (WCC) Games Played/Started Minutes/Game Points/Game Rebounds/Game Assists/Game Turnovers/Game Assist/Turnover Ratio Steals/Game
2010–11[29] 31–5 (14–0) 36/36 32.9 19.8 8.4 10.2 3.3 3.08 3.2
Vandersloot became one of the most decorated players of the 2010–11 season. She won the women's Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award as the top Division I player no taller than 5'8" (1.73 m),[30] and the Nancy Lieberman Award as the top point guard in Division I women's basketball.[28] She was also named to multiple All-America teams. The AP named her a second-team All-America; she became the first women's player in WCC history to be named to that specific team.[31] She also was named to the five-woman Wooden All-America Team, another honor never before achieved by a WCC player.[32] Finally, she was named to the 10-player USBWA All-America team, becoming the first Gonzaga player so honored,[33] and the 10-member State Farm Coaches All-America team, another first for a WCC player.[34]
Her impact on the Gonzaga program can be measured by another statistic—home attendance. The year before she arrived in Spokane, the Bulldogs averaged 1,492 with a team that would make its first NCAA Tournament appearance. By her junior year, attendance had risen to 2,935, and rose again to 3,824 in her senior season, with the Zags selling out the McCarthey Athletic Center twice before the NCAA tournament.[2]

Sounds to me like she can carry a team. Good pick.

Ahahaaha.. seriously, I saw the draft listed on my espn page as top news, I was like wtf?? the open series against the angels will have more fans in attendence that care to watch the game then any teams whole season in the wnba.

Has one team made a profit yet?

Also, I think it would be more interesting if the wnba teams had to play random boys high school teams. At least that way some basketball was being played.
