Mercury in retrograde like a Maggie Rogers song?
Skylar Diggins-Smith is about to take Phoenix out the ashes.
The former Wings of this warrior like Steph Curry played last year pregnant without telling a soul. This year she’s about to give birth to the next contending big-three with G.O.A.T. Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner as Mercury rises like a 90’s Bruce Willis movie.
With one of the most major moves of the off-season like Seimone Augustus to the superstar sparked purple and gold Los Angeles out in Hollywood, PHX out in the dry desert of Arizona now have the sand to be associated with the greatest in women’s basketball. Let alone the West best.
Now they’re about to stick you like a city cactus.
Raising Arizona like Nic Cage, Suns legend and two time MVP, Canada’s own Steve Nash interviewed explosive Phoenix franchise starter, Mr. 71, Devin Booker for TNT yesterday. The court culmination of Taurasi and Diggins-Smith feels like this…if not better. It feels like Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike for the Sparks. Or even better, Parker and Lisa Leslie for the legendary Los Angeles franchise in this legacy making league.
And celebrating International Women’s Day with Book at the half of the Suns and Bucks game it doesn’t get much more inspirational than these two.
Add Brittney Griner and its a wrap like your birthday. Right now out in the desert it feels like Christmas.
But with breaking new telling us that the big brother league of the NBA will be suspended like James Bond’s ‘No Time To Die’ until further notice after Rudy Gobert contracted coronavirus like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson today and thousands of people that deserve just as much of our attention have been too for weeks now, we may not even seen a WNBA season this year. But still that’s beside the point. Vaccinating this virus for good is all that is important right now.
But if we do have one we are set for one scorching Summer this season with the Suns sister franchise. Right now the Mercury and their two Queens sound as good as Freddie in a ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
And if we have an Olympics too in Japan, expect these three to lead the way for Team USA in Tokyo 2020. As the former Dallas Wings former Tulsa Shock draft pick who is still only 29 gives the Mercury a Taurasi, Griner and Diggins-Smith that could even shock spark the Candace Parker, Ogwukime twins, Augustus and Chelsea Gray purple and gold. Let alone mystify the Delle Donne Mytsics out in D.C.
Unlike the last X-Men movie it’s no longer dark in Phoenix with their new Jean Grey.
With the Wings of Skylar, the order of the Phoenix Mercury are about to spread theirs.
Now watch them fly.
