New York Liberty star Sabrina Ionescu and Las Vegas Raiders center Hroniss Grasu’s wedding on Sunday was crashed by a special guest: the Oregon Duck mascot. Since both Ionescu and Grasu were Oregon athletes, it makes sense that the giant duck mascot would be a guest of honor at the celebrations. The Duck did have to travel a bit to make it to the wedding, though, as the ceremony and reception took place in Laguna Beach, Calif. Ionescu included some fun photos of the duck dancing during the reception in her wedding Instagram post. The mascot seemed to be havin ..read more

Since entering the WNBA in 2000, the Indiana Fever have lived a fairly low-key existence. They won a title in 2012 and produced one of the league’s great players in forward Tamika Catchings, but never quite found the name recognition of dynasties like the Los Angeles Sparks or Minnesota Lynx.

The ticketing website said Friday that tickets to Fever games are alrea ..read more

Retired basketball star Sue Bird doesn’t see why not. “I think if she plays up to her potential, yes, that’s realistic,” Bird told the Sports Media with Richard Deitsch podcast. “And by the way, that’s not a knock on anyone in the WNBA. It’s going to be hard, but I think she can do it.” Bird emphasized that Clark’s penchant for shooting the ball from distance—a trait that has made her extremely difficult to cover in college—would be the skill that would catapult her into the All-Star conversation as a rook ..read more
