TV Alert

Life on the court has been rough in Atlanta for former Storm starters Betty Lennox and Iziane Castro Marques. Doubt it gets any better tonight when the expansion Dream (0-10) hosts San Antonio (6-4). But if you’re missing the duo, you can catch the game tonight on NBA-TV at 4 p.m. PST.
Local papers focused on G Becky Hammon’s decision to play for Russia in the upcoming games and Lennox extended her support, stating, “I’ve been coached by Anne Donovan and it wouldn’t surprise me the things she’s saying abut Becky.”
Incidentally, for those concerned about Donovan’s health after seeing clips of the former Storm coach on TV, I spoke with Connecticut coach Mike Thibault, who said she’s in good spirits and is in good health from what he knows. Thibault will serve as one of Donovan’s national team assistants and said he spends about one day a week dealing with USA Basketball during the WNBA season.
As for his opinion on Hammon, he’s staying out of it.
“I don’t really have an opinion about the whole thing,” Thibault said. “I don’t know, is Anne getting as much criticism as Becky? I don’t know. It has become an issue that nobody will totally understand on either side. That’s all I’ll say. There’s been things that haven’t been talked about and there’s no point in doing it. It’s a different generation and the money in Europe is so different. At this point, I just really don’t have an opinion on it.”
