We can't quite stick a fork in them yet.

We clinched out 8th straight playoff berth last night.

Maya appears to be heating up at the right time - which is huge with Whalen and Brunson out the past 2 games.

Unfortunately Danielle Robinson looked like she suffered a pretty bad ankle sprain.

Goes without saying how cool it would be to muster up one more just for old timeys sake ...


How long are Lindsey and Brunson out?

Whalen will retire as the WNBA’s all-time wins leader, racking up 322 career victories, including 54 in the postseason, which ranks second all-time behind teammate Rebekkah Brunson (57). Whalen ranks third in WNBA history in assists, trailing only Sue Bird and Ticha Penicheiro. Her impressive résumé includes six All-Star appearances, 13 playoff appearances, eight WNBA Finals appearances, four WNBA championships and Olympic gold medals with Team USA in 2012 and 2016.

As a couple of posters have already said; Lindsey is without question on the Minnesota Sports Mount Rushmore.

With one small tweet, that man may just have changed an entire career of hate from me.
I feel like such a cad now.

Nice, KG

You look at the accomplishments she's achieved, glad the big boys recognize that.

It seemed really strange her retiring right before the playoffs. I would have laid 10 to 1 odds on her retiring after this season. Now the team can rally around her. Win one more for Lindsay.

Reeve says she talked to her about making an announcement. I think, in part, that is part of Reeve's strategy to get the Lynx going.

Whalen didn't want a season long retirement party. She really didn't even want a 2 home game retirement party. Classy.
