Will 13th Season be Lucky for Lynx?

The Lynx held their annual media day today....

WNBA Commissioner Donna Orender

P1070610.JPGOn the league and the economy:
"We think the WNBA is really at the heart of main street America in terms of the values we possess and in terms of the value proposition we provide in these tough economic times."

"Having 11 players on the roster instead of 13 is going to make it extra competitive and continue the growth of the quality of play."

4th Overall Pick Renee Montgomery

P1070645.JPGOn the prospect of losing:
"In high school we lost 4 games, in college we only lost like 11. (In this league) you are going to lose a lot more games, I guess I will just have to learn to handle it quicker. When we play (back-to-back games) I can't be upset about losing the night before and blow the game the next day. It's something you learn, something you adapt to, but I don't think I'll ever get used to losing."

Rochester Native Kelly Miller

On playing in Minnesota:

"I am excited to be back in my home state, it's always been a good basketball state. I am looking forward to playing this summer."

"I've always kind of looked at the Lynx and thought it would be nice to come back home and play. It's great to be back here."

9th Overall Pick Quanitra Hollingsworth

P1070664.JPGOn coming to Minneapolis:
"I am pretty low key and laid back, so I really haven't done much. I am looking forward to going to the Mall of America pretty soon and go to the movies and things like that."

On Always being the youngest:

"I've always fit in. I've never had to adjust to that. I think moreso the people on the outside looking in have had to adjust to it mentally. They never really know what's going on (with me). I haven't had a problem with it and don't think I'll ever have a problem with it."
