The Other Basketball Team In Phoenix

With free agency in the NBA in full swing and all the talk about where Lebron James will end up the Phoenix Suns are a hot topic again.  Everyone in Phoenix has high hopes for the 2014-2015 version of the Phoenix Suns.  But wait, they are not the only show in town.  That's right Phoenix has another team that call U.S. Airways Arena home.  It's the Phoenix Mercury!
In case you didn't know the Phoenix Mercury are our WNBA team, and they represent the state of Arizona well.  They are currently 14-3 and hold the best record in the WNBA.  They also have two of the games best players in their starting lineup in Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner.  Both are completely dominating the league and are being rewarded with starting spots in this years WNBA All-Star Game, which will be played here in Phoenix next Saturday.  The Mercury is having another memorable season and is looking to bring another Championship to the valley, something the Suns have failed to do.  The WNBA isn't nearly as popular as the NBA but with Taurasi's scoring ability and the fact that at 6'8 Brittney Griner can dunk, and does so often,  the Mercury are worth the watch.  They are an exciting team that is keeping many fans occupied with basketball this summer.
