7/20 Storm vs. Sun

Storm fans know Kevin Pelton. We know that as the beat writer for he has single-handedly made the Storm web site one of the most interesting and informative team sites in the league. People like Kevin and Paul Swanson of the Lynx are prime examples of why the WNBA might be the most friendly league in professional sports today. We know that Bill Lambier and Donna Orender read and post to fan sites like Rebkell, but so do people throughout the league like Kevin, Paul, Matt Wurst and others who are lurking or have managed to maintain anonymity. I love the game of basketball and I would not be able to enjoy it near as much without the active participation of people like Kevin and Paul. Their passion for the game and their ability to remain fans while they also earn their paycheck from the league is fantastic, but it is their willingness and desire to share their knowledge and access with fans that sets this league apart from others. Paul and Kevin have both helped me out with getting data I couldn't get in other ways or pointed me in a great direction to learn something new and see the game from a new perspective. They help keep the game alive between the final buzzer of one game and the first jump ball of the next. If you haven't done it before drop them a comment at their blogs or pm them at Rebkell just to say thanks, they don't score the points, but they help bring the game to us every day.

Still 2 games behind.
