Seems like your beef is with @Britt87 for changing the subject. I just was trying to help out because I know not everyone around these parts is super proficient in the ways of IG.I’ll make you a deal. I’ll post that story for you if you start your own thread. This is Collier thread. I’m repping Collier only in this thread.
Normally, the Lynx roster is one of the hardest rosters in the league to make for rookies and free agents. With only 4 returning players in camp, there's plenty of openings this year. A lot easier than in years past. We know that Collier, Lexie Brown and Shepard are keepers. I don't believe Reeve will be able to keep Collier on the bench for long periods of time.There's a story on the Lynx website:
Training Camp Report | Lynx Anchored By Familiar Faces As They Welcome A Changed Team - Minnesota LynxThe Lynx kicked off their 2019 training camp on Sunday, welcoming a ton of new faces into the building and getting off to a great start in what is sure to be a productive, fun, competitive two weeks.lynx.wnba.com
I had no idea there were only four returning players:
"Reeve was upfront in saying that there will be a learning curve, after all there are only four returning players from last season. However, it’s a bright, competitive group, and they are anchored by the always-solid Seimone Augustus, Sylvia Fowles and Danielle Robinson."
From Sylvia Fowles:
“These girls are amazing; it feels good to actually have some people that we can run with. These young legs, fresh out of college, I’m liking the process of just keeping up which is good for me because I like to run. They out here doing their thing and they’re making the coaches’ job real hard about who they are going to pick for the season.”
Given that there are only four returning from last year's roster, I'm not as sure about my earlier remark that they'll be competitive this season, but I still think with Collier, Shepard, Karima, Lexie Brown et al., they will be.

The “4” must be the returning players in camp NOW. Not sure where that number came from.Normally, the Lynx roster is one of the hardest rosters in the W. to make for rookies and free agents. With only 4 returning players in camp, there's 8 openings this year.
I can't wait to see how Collier performs in her first regular season game on May 25 vs the Sky. 14/8 would not surprise me.The “4” must be the returning players in camp NOW. Not sure where that number came from.
They would be
Larkins - She was a fill-in player last year that stuck because Brunson had a season-ending injury. Not sure she survives the whole season this year.
But there’s two players from last season that are arriving late from overseas obligations.
They would be
Both are locks.
There’s also returning players from previous seasons
Dantas (2014-2015), a lock... might be starter
Shao Ting (2017 camp), not sure how she’ll do
And Pheesa will think to herself where have I heard that line before“This is the most new-ness we’ve had since my first camp in 2010… There’s going to be a lot more teaching,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said after practice. “Things that were just a well-oiled machine, I could say something and people knew what I was talking about, this group has no clue.”
