DRAFT DAY PHOTO GALLERY
It was a pretty boring draft day, with no stunning surprises – until New York’s John Whisenant took Kelley Cain with the seventh pick, thus inspiring the entire Liberty fan base to rise up as one and call for his immediate execution.

BRISTOL, Conn. -- The Guru has a few quick impressions after a draft whose overall worth won't be known until it is determined who actually makes the 11-player rosters of the 12 teams who already are loaded with veterans.
Nneka Ogumwmike will be a value in the tradition of overall No. 1 picks, maybe not necessarily on the scale of a Lauren Jackson, but will bring positive returns to the Los Angeles Sparks and to the WNBA both on and off the court.
No surprise. Los Angeles quickly takes Stanford all-American Nneka Oguwmike of Stanford as the No. 1 pick. Incidentlally, it turns out that Tennessee's Glory Johnson has also has a Nigerian background.
