Some notable surprises…

No Kristi Toliver. She was traded to LA Sparks yesterday for LA’s 2011 2nd round draft pick.

No Courtney Paris. It wouldn’t make sense for the Sky to keep both Olajuwon and Paris. Having three players on the roster that can ONLY play center (Abi, Paris and Syl) wouldn’t make sense. The Sky had a tough decision and they chose Olajuwon because, well, she played better than Paris. Definitely a good decision here.

No KB Sharp. Okay, that one’s not exactly surprise, but well…Chicago Sky Veteran K.B. Sharp to Forgo 2010 Season

“This has been a tough decision to come to,” Sharp said. “I’ve experienced many feelings, many ups and downs. There are many reasons for my decision including wanting to finish my diploma to secure my future after basketball and spending time with my family. I loved playing in Chicago and am happy I got to finish my career playing there.”

Sounds like she’s done with basketball and will focus on other things like school and establishing a post-basketball career. Good luck with everything, KB.

Sandora Irvin on the roster. Irvin played well in preseason and I thought she fit nicely on the roster. Problem is, I really couldn’t figure out a scenario that would allow her to be on the team without leaving Big Syl as our only center. Well, getting rid of Toliver for nothing solved that problem. Essentially, Toliver was traded so the Sky could keep Irvin. The only reason this crappy move was necessary is because Sylvia Fowles is the least reliable player on the planet. I understand the reasoning behind it and Irvin’s good, but I still don’t like this move at all. Toliver could have done big things for us this year. There’s no way Irvin can have the kind of impact that Toliver could have had.
