Honestly, I’m so happy to have Ticha join this team. She is a great assist leader, and she has the ability to get the ball to the right person in the right place. Wow this is a big pick up for the Sparks, and she provides great leadership.

What’s up LOS ANGELES SPARKS FANS…we officially have a new point guard on the team, her name is Ticha Penicheiro .Former Sacramento Monarchs point guard, has just signed with the Sparks. Here is her tweet:
TichaPenicheiro:Ok, enough…I have tortured you guys enough!! I’ll be a SPARK!! Hopefully, literally!! 😉 I’m excited!! Thank you for your support!!
I personally asked Ticha about two weeks ago where she thought she might go, and if LA was an option, and she responded by saying: “Wow 2 be on a team w/ gr8 players like TT,CP3, DMJ, &BL would be a point guard dream!”
So people holla at me and tell me what you think about this move by our beloved Sparks. Instead of her, creating havoc against us, she is now on our team. I personally think it’s a great look.

Check out WNBA star Candace Parker with her baby girl Lailaa Nicole.Superwoman…she is over in Russia playing basketball,and has her daughter with her. Her husband Shelden Williams plays for the (excuse me Laker fam) the Boston Celtics…well everything can’t be perfect..lol. Naw I love you Shelden, and Candace is a former Lady Vol..so you know how I feel about that!
SparksNation stand up! The L.A. Sparks are one series away from the promise land. This time the road to the finals run through the “desert” and believe me the Mercury are thirsty. Even though they are only a year removed from the championship, the 3 headed monster of Diana Taurasi, Cappie Poindexter, and Penny Taylor are in desperate search of that opportunity again. They have one problem, for the land of sun, beaches and pool parties, the Sparks are more thirsty than they are. It’s been 7 long years since a championship came to the L.A. basketball community and coincidentally, the last time the Lakers won a championship, so did the Sparks! The Lakers with a three-peat, and the Sparks making it a back to back championship celebration. So if history repeats itself, there is about to be another celebration in L.A., this time for the Sparks.
It’s only fitting that the “Queen” of the WNBA and USA basketball(which doesn’t get enough shine in my opinion) finish her career holding that WNBA trophy. And this is the year to do it. I think a lot of us are so caught up in the fact that this is Lisa’s last year (as we should) that we are forgetting that with another Sparks title, Tina Thompson will have an unprecedented 5 WNBA titles, which is the most of any WNBA player, active or retired. Now that’s putting in work. Had she been our “6th woman”, she would have had that award this year as well. What I’m loving most, is watching this team play with everyone healthy. With this entire team intact, the Sparks have lost only 3 games (?) including the playoffs.
SparksNation holla at ya girl! That was a hard “pill” to swallow last night. It took me about 2hours to “begin” to shake it off, and yet I still have not succeeded! I can tell you one thing I am though, mad. I’m ready to see my team impose their will on this Storm team. Let’s be clear, I’m not crazy…I know that they have some good players on their team, but the leading scorer is out, the lil general is their (Sue Bird), but these “role” players are treating our olympians with no respect.
SparksNation what it do? On April 9, 2008 our Los Angeles Sparks “proposed” to Candace Parker. They rolled out the purple and gold carpet for her, and let her know from the beginning-when Lisa Leslie retires this will be her team! Well that time has come, with Lisa Leslie announcing at the beginning of this season, that she will retire at the end of the 2009 season.
With all of Lisa accomplishments, one that we as Sparks fans can really appreciate is the fact that she “married” the Los Angeles Sparks. We knew that when she retired, it would be in a Sparks uniform. She is nothing less, than the greatest female center to play the game. Now she is leaving the organization she built…and I mean that literally, from promotion, to community events, Lisa has done it all to make sure that the league would be around for the likes of Parker, and others. So now comes the time for Candace Parker to decide if she will accept the proposal for a “career” commitment to the LA Sparks.
SparksNation remember Candace’s husband Shelden Williams plays in the NBA, and I won’t hold it against him, that he plays for the Celtics, but that means she can make her home almost anywhere. She constantly talks about how “expensive” it is to live in LA…lol, yet we know she isn’t truly worried about that. I’m just saying the things she have to consider, before setting the date, after they win the 2009 WNBA championship.
Ok enough of that…we know that Candace will indeed “marry” the Sparks…she is more than ready to continue the house that Leslie built. By the time Candace is done, and ready to retire, they will have to share that floor…lol. We will watch this marriage begin next season!
