LOS ANGELES -- They were dancing and singing along to Aretha's "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" in the Los
Angeles Sparks locker room Saturday afternoon. Well, that and a couple
of other songs with the word "respect" in them, but I'm not hip enough
to know what those were.
And the first thing I thought, honestly, was, "Why on earth are they playing those?"
Respect? Does any Spark player actually think that she was "earning respect" by beating New York 69-66 in Game 2 and winning the WNBA championship ...
