One week into their first training camp under Bill Laimbeer, the New York Liberty are full of excitement and optimism.
The Washington Mystics were glad to finally get their first road win of the season in their last game before the Olympic break.
"He has a great system for us, utilizes everyone at their strengths," forward Essence Carson said Monday at the team's annual media day. "We're just trying to get this chemistry together and get it rolling."
"I was just coming into the league, just looking to win, period," she said. "I didn't care who I was playing, what coach it was, what the other team was. I just wanted to win. It doesn't feel weird to play for him. It just seems weird that he's in New York because you always identify him with Detroit, his playing days and his coaching days."
