Happy Fourth of July!

Fireworks.jpgSeems the Australians and Americans are getting their fireworks started early with Lauren Jackson calling DeLisha Milton-Jones a thug after the Los Angeles F smacked the Storm star in the nose. Aussie Penny Taylor looked to whip Cappie Pondexter after the latter was ejected from the Phoenix-New York game for smacking Taylor in the face on a drive to the hoop.
After the game, Pondexter, who was traded from Phoenix during the offseason, made the following two posts on her Twitter account:

New York plays at Seattle on Tuesday at noon while the Aussies and Americans will meet in a scrimmage on July 11 in Connecticut. Milton-Jones won’t be involved, but the other three will.
Jackson suffered a concussion due to her hit. The Storm is off on Sunday, so I’ll have an update on her status Monday. Enjoy the holiday!
