This is a team starved for attention, a league craving more of the spotlight. The Lynx are becoming more relevant with every season, and theirs this year was a compelling story. So why end it early, when there was another layer to explore? Why not come back, however sad, and talk? Tell us what it’s like a day, two days, three days later. Tell us what you’re doing this offseason, where you’re going. Let us all gasp when you say you’ll be playing in China, Australia, Prague, wherever, in a matter of days. Tell us how excited you are for next year to give it another shot, how thrilling it is to get another chance to play with this talented group.
There was no need to end the conversation early, not when this team has so much to be proud of.
Something, anything would have been better than this….
