San Antonio Stars guard Kelsey Plum is in the midst of an unfortunate rookie season, but her play of late shows there is still time to turn it around. The Stars selected Plum No. 1 overall in the 2017 WNBA draft, but have rarely given the Cheap NFL Jerseys 22-year-old guard enough minutes to showcase her skills this season.
That wasn’t the case in San Antonio’s 87-80 win against the Seattle Storm on Aug. 5. Plum played for a season-high 40 minutes and poured in a team-high 23 points, while shooting over 60 percent from deep. She is a pure markswoman from beyond the arc and seems to be finding her rhythm in the league. San Antonio is at the bottom of the WNBA standings at 6-21, so anything the Stars can get from Plum would be a welcome change.
Van Gundy isn’t overly emotional in either role, but he’s barely keeping afloat. He was brought in to carry the Pistons into a new era of success, but he has two losing seasons in three and not a single playoff win. The current setup is not working. He is still a helluva coach — he was always underrated in Miami and Orlando — but someone else needs to be in the seat of power when it comes to the roster.
Detroit has some important decisions coming. Heck, the Pistons have already made some big decisions! Detroit sent Marcus Morris to Boston for Avery Bradley, which is a good move that opens some playing space for Johnson in theory. In a domino New York Yankees Cheap Jerseys effect of that move, Van Gundy renounced the rights to restricted free agent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, which was a bit mystifying to be honest.
Overall, Detroit isn’t appreciably better this season. That’s not good when you consider they missed the playoffs in the mediocre Eastern Conference last year.
The time had come for Roc Divers, and he accepted his fate. Will Van Gan Stundy do the same? Will he be forced to? For the Pistons, that would be best.
