ESPN – The Shock signed 50-year-old Nancy Lieberman, a Hall of Famer and one of their former coaches, to a seven-day contract on Thursday. She played 9:14 seconds in the Shock’s 79-61 loss to the Houston Comets on Thursday night. Lieberman was 0-for-1 from the floor with two assists and two turnovers.
“It’s really a one-game deal,” Lieberman said in a telephone interview. “My motivation stems from the fact that I love this game and I never stopped playing it whether it’s a pickup game with Deion Sanders and Tony Romo at a church or at a park with my son.”
So I guess this was an effort to distract fans from the mishap of the other night when the women got into a huge catfight.
Did it work?
I don’t know but it certainly got the media’s attention, and rightfully so. Lieberman is 50. That’s right, 50. No I’m serious, she’s really 50.
The only player in recent history who still played professional sports later than her was Julio Franco who just recently retired at the age of 132.
It’s too bad Lieberman really didn’t help the much. Without most of their squad, the Shock easily got pounded by the Comets 79-61. Oh well. Better stick to bingo.
