Eastern Conference view

The Washington Mystics defeated Sacramento in an exhibition, barnstorming game in Tampa, Fla., on Monday. As the regular season draws closer, I decided to check in with “The Heard” rounder, Ned Griffin of The New London (Conn.) Day about how the Eastern Conference is shaping up.
“The Heard” is what they call the pack of about 12 news outlets in Connecticut that cover the Sun and some spread themselves around to cover the New York Liberty and Mystics.
Anyway, looks like Detroit is the pick until knocked off, although they lost depth and Deana Nolan and Cheryl Ford are dealing with injuries. We both agree Indiana will disappoint because Tamika Catchings just got off crutches and probably won’t be back at full strength until July. She’s also focusing on the Olympics. But Katie Douglas’ return to her native state makes things interesting. The Sun looks “intriguing” and former Storm forward Barbara Turner has impressed the coaching staff with her forceful style. She still trying to prove she’s worthy to play in the league.
But we both like San Antonio in 2008. Of course that might change when we get to see a real game.
