Chennedy Carter is the Female Trae Young

Recommended Posts

Looks like a bit heavier weight towards penetration over perimeter shooting but exciting new addition to the Dream!

Some NBA fans here will find it necessary for their grass to really step it up.  You know who you are.  "Watching my grass grow is more exciting than watching a WNBA game."

Dream play tonight on NBATV, FYI!

Actually on CBS Sports Network tonight (10 PM Eastern, right after Sabrina Ionescu's New York Liberty face the Dallas Wings at 8), but NBA TV has been dropping games out of the sky lately, so check there if you don't have CBS SN!

Done in by what once was "our female Joe Johnson" and her knowledgeable veteran friends! lol

Still plenty of flashes of something very good this way comes! The ballhandling and wizardry passing is there. Like Trae, she needs somebody to be consistent on the other end of those tasty dishes.

Y'all remember when Trae "struggled" in his first couple Summer League games, the narratives that flooded in?

Remember that Chennedy gets no Spring/Summer League (in any season), and sat for months with no scrimmaging except against some of her own teammates (like "Bleak" Dietrick lmao, what on Earth was she doing at the end of the first half? Princeton, eh?) in recent weeks.

Carter arrives on a team that finished a league-worst 8-26 without Angel last season, and what would be the two top returning scorers from that team including the only legit 3-point shooter they had before Shekinna Stricklen, opted out of playing in the Wubble in 2020.

Three of the team's four biggest veteran offseason additions, Stricklen being the exception, all came down with COVID and have yet to join her team on the floor. Two of her other 8 teammates are second-rounders that normally wouldn't make a final roster cut. Two more were signed just before it was time to head down to Manatee County.

And the second game of Carter's professional career is against Angel, the borderline-Hall of Fame star she just replaced here in town, on a squad that's still a contender without arguably its most dominant big in the league, led by perennial MVP candidate A'ja Wilson and three-time WNBA champion coach Bill Laimbeer.

Carter wages against a team that was gifted three #1 overall WNBA picks the past four seasons, one of whom opted out, while the other hardly has to lift a finger off the bench because their depth is still good. Angel's arrival makes it four #1 overall picks on Bill's 11-woman roster. A 2017 All-Star and a 2015 All-Star come off the bench, too, not even counting 2019's Sixth Woman of the Year.

Chennedy's teammate, with a league-high 30 points on Sunday versus a young Dallas Wings club, got herself in early foul trouble and finished with a mere five. Bleak and the bench shot 2-for-20 on threes. It's rough out here.

I'm legit surprised the outcome wasn't worse. We'll see if the club can fare better against New York, who has the fantastic Sabrina Ionescu (33 points last night, but in a 13-point loss to that same Dallas team) but also six other rookies in tow, tomorrow night (7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and NBA TV). With only a day between games the rest of the way, for talented youngsters like Carter and Ionescu, the learning will have to come on the fly.

 

Go Dream!

Angel's Aces won but the Dream bounced back and won the next one!

Atlanta had 2 come from behind wins Friday night.  Dream was behind at the half and the Braves were down by a lot before their victory!
