Detroit Shock Brawl Fallout: Sign 50-Year Old Hall of Famer

Well, the Shock sure seem determined to keep the WNBA in the news. After Detroit had five players (and assistant coach Rick Mahorn) suspended following Tuesday's brawl with the LA Sparks, they decided to sign on additional help. That help, as it turns out, comes in the form of 50-year old Hall of Fame player Nancy Lieberman, who last played in the WNBA in 1999. Liberman got a seven-day contract, and will get a shot at playing while the Shock are depleted by suspension.
"Can she still compete at this level? I don't know," [Coach Bill] Laimbeer said. "But I'm going to throw her in the fire."
Please, Coach, don't throw her. She might break a hip.
