Hello and goodbye

Of all the off-seasons to not have a year-round Storm blog! Man, I’ve felt stifled the last few months with the sale, new owners, and goodness! All of the free-agent signings.
It’s weird, but thank heavens for Sonics rookie Kevin Durant and the guys at this auto shop in Renton. They love women’s hoops, so we caught up on the latest. And many in the area are still stunned the Storm left guard Betty Lennox unprotected in the expansion draft. Atlanta promptly picked her up and she could be a key piece out there. Via trade, the Dream also took promising forward Iziane Castro Marques, who is working on securing her work visa to play in the states this summer.
It’s hard to look back with all the star-studded faces the Storm roster now has. Yet, Lennox wanted to say good-bye to those who supported her throughout her four seasons in a Storm jersey. Here’s that e-letter and know I’m excited to be back. It should be a rocking season.
Dear Seattle,
I would like to thank all the kind people of Seattle who made my time there so special. My home away from home, The Oakwood Village apartments entire staff. They kept me safe and looked out for me every year. Thank you. The fans who supported me and my foundation. Thank for being a big part of my success in Seattle: If it was not for you I would not have made it this far.
The four years I spent in Seattle felt like home. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and bringing me into your lives, as a member of your family each night by the support and love you gave me. Continue to support the women of the WNBA, if it was not for your love and support this league would not exist. The fans play a big part of the success in Seattle and I hope some of that can rub off in Atlanta. I will carry your spirit with me always and remember your chants, love, and how you embraced me when I came to your town.
I will one day return but know my love for you all will still beat in my heart. I was hurt when I first got the message on my answering machine that I would not be protected by Seattle. And then to find out later I was leaving, but know everything happens for a reason and we all must still look forward for the positive path, even if we do not understand. Just know that B-MONEY thanks you and appreciates all that you have done for me. Keep the DREAM alive.
Much love,
Betty Lennox
