The key will be replacing players like Whalen and others around 30 when the time comes. Drafting is an in-exact science, and the future requires stumble free draft choices.

Congratulations to the Minnesota Lynx for modeling what a real "Dream Team" is. Over the past 15 years, I'm proud to have watched the transformation of this team, built with patience and timing, player by special player -- and the right coaching staff assembled by ownership. Early on, friends questioned why I bothered to renew my season tickets. Those same friends now attend games and talk WNBA -- and the Lynx are a franchise well-positioned for the future and worth the price of admission. During the "scant years," winning seemed less important than supporting a womens pro basketball pipeline, but landing two championships in three years has made the journey that much sweeter. The Lynx core and style of play will organically evolve in the future, but let's hope playing as a cohesive team that brings non-stop focus, discipline, pride, intensity and integrity to both ends of the court always stays. Most appreciably, they're a modest and deserving collection of talented athletes and coaches -- consistently gracious to their fans and giving of their community -- who care more about winning as a team than individual accolades: that's really what it's all about. Thank you for another class-act season, WNBA Champions Minnesota Lynx: you are who we thought you are!

Sad for you kinnick but enough people care for it to matter, ha ha. And those of us who do, are enjoying the heck out of supporting WINNERS. Our Lynx are better then the LA teams, But, before our Lynx reach or surpass the Houston Comets, they have to match the Detroit Shock. Kent the Shock went to 4 finals in 6 yrs and won 3 titles. If the Lynx can put togehter 3, 4 more yrs of playing for titles, they just might be get to the top of the list.

unfortunately what snippet says is true still a lot of people that prefer to watch men's teams consisting of shellfish overpriced athletes on losing teams then on a women's team where everybody puts aside their egos and work together to bring home a championship

I don't care where they rank, and we won't know until someone makes Strat-o-matic WNBA. They're awfully fun to watch, and I'm proud to be a fan, I'm glad they won the thing, and when you have 14,000 people at your game, that means something. I believe their future point guard is Lindsey Moore, and I really wish one of these years that Amber Harris would get her game together because she's a good matchup for the bigs.

A sign of true sportsmanship is giving credit where credit is due, you’ll hear it in most postgame interviews. So the bemoaning of the jealous un-sportsmen bunch that have followed the failed men’s teams in this town should not bother those who understand what sportsmanship and team play is all about. This is the Lynx time to shine…they earned it…they deserve their day in the sun (or clouds according to the weathermen). Who cares if this team could beat teams of the past…who cares if this team will be a dynasty…what we should care about and what Lynx fans do care about is that they won! They won handily and they are bringing a championship trophy home. YEAH LYNX!!
