Lennox star worthy?

The WNBA had an interesting tag on its homepage today.
With the headline “Most Deserving,” there was a photo of Storm guard Betty Lennox driving to the hoop while being defended by Sacramento center Yolanda Griffith. The excerpt wanted fan feedback on who folks thought should be named as reserves, which will be announced on July 8 and are actually selected by the respective conference coaches.
Earlier I mentioned Storm center Janell Burse should be a reserve for the July 12 game and only excluded Lennox because at the time her numbers didn’t sparkle like you know they can. Well, that has since changed. Lennox is averaging 18.6 points on 50 percent shooting from the field (38 for 76) in the team’s past five games and Seattle is 3-2 during that stretch. Plus she’s collecting steals (10 in the past two games), rebounds, and dishing out passes like point guard Sue Bird. The only thing working against Lennox, 29, is she’s in a tough group that includes rookie sensations Cappie Pondexter and Seimone Augustus, along with other vets.
“Betty deserves something? I don’t know,” said Lennox, falling into her third-person speech, which playfully cracked up the media. “I’m just here to play, do my job and get some wins. That’s what Betty is here to do. I know Betty had this in her. This is a Betty you guys haven’t seen before, but I’m just out really having fun. I know that I can do these things, it’s just when the opportunity presents itself and I’m feeling very confident in myself.”
Lennox was an All-Star as a rookie in Minnesota (2000).
“I look at myself from that rookie season to now and I’m a very mature player,” she said. “I’ve been in the league for seven years and I’m hoping I can build off some things. A lot of people are saying, ‘Betty you’re having the best season ever,’ and I’m glad it’s coming that way because you’re supposed to grow in each year that you play the game of basketball.”
