If not the best backcourt in the WNBA, they're right there at the top. It's because of the intangible things. It won't be because of their size. It won't be because of their physical strength. It has a lot to do with their resilience and their tenacity and their competitiveness and just their ability to elevate the team that they're on.

Seattle Storm head coach Brian Agler on the duo of Sue Bird and Tanisha Wright, "An Unbeatable Backcourt." Bird and Wright combined to earn the title of league's longest tenured starting backcourt at 117 games last season and will continue to build on that record in 2012. The pair signed multi-year contracts with the Storm this week.

[Seattle Storm guard Sue] Bird also is an unrestricted free agent. Agler said he expects to have her resigned in February.

From Jayda Evans' Women's Hoops Blog at the Seattle Times. We are getting some notice as you can see in the comments section on tweeting the possibility that Phoenix will make a run at her in free agency, but which team isn't? If Sue leaves, I expect a sign and trade to an Eastern Conference team where the Storm gets 2013 draft picks, for an all-out rebuild.

Q. If you were to switch to the NBA, what team would you want to play for? [Sue] Bird: The Knicks. Q. You wouldn't want to play for the Mavs or the Heat? Bird: Maybe for Mark Cuban. But I associate NBA basketball with the Knicks. It's a no-brainer.

From a Seattle Times interview with Sue Bird, starting guard for the Seatlle Storm, which won the WNBA Finals last year. This may not truly be a Mavs-related link, but I would still consider this quote a compliment to you all for winning one for the good guys!

Q. Did you have any male basketball players you looked up to? [Sue] Bird: Yeah, Larry Bird, obviously, because of the last name. When I got to late high school, Mike Bibby was at Arizona, and that's my favorite player. I really like his game. I think we have similarities. He wears No. 10. He's kind of a perfect fit. His game really reminds me of mine. But he's only a couple years older than me, so it wasn't like I was looking up to him growing up.

From a Seattle Times interview with Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird. If you didn't see already, there was another article from the Seattle Times last weekend. Looks like she's gotten a lot of love since being named one of America's Top 10 favorite athletes.

No. 4 Sue Bird: When you are the leader of a defending championship team, you have more than punched your ticket onto this list. Sue Bird had done nothing but perform at a high level and win in her tenth season in the WNBA as the Seattle Storm's point guard.

From Felix Hernandez Leads Seattle's Top-Five Most Popular Athletes In 2011 - SB Nation Seattle. Lauren Jackson was the first athlete listed as "others in consideration".

Sue (Bird) is the consummate point guard. She's experienced, she's won championships at every level. She's really a coach on the floor, so she understands that when the team leaves the huddle it's her team. And she transferred a lot of that to [Epiphanny Prince] in terms of talking to the team during dead balls and being a lot more vocal and explaining things to her. So I thought it was a tremendous help and I'm sure Piph is going to back that up. Because if you look at the game, I only have so many timeouts but as a player you have several dead balls. And that's when someone like Sue Bird can become critical for you because she's a coach on the floor.

Chicago Sky and Spartak coach Pokey Chatman during an interview with Swish Appeal yesterday on what she saw guard Epiphanny Prince learning from Sue Bird as Spartak teammates during Euroleague/WNBA off-season. While acknowledging that Prince is a natural scorer, Chatman also saw Prince develop as a distributor this off-season as well, which can only be an encouraging sign for the Sky.

It's ok. Taking it day-by-day...I did most of practice, pretty much all of it, except for the last 10 minutes. It's ok.

- Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird after practice today on her health after leaving Sunday's game with what she called a "hyperflexed" knee. For more on the injury, please see StormBasketball.com.
