Wow oh wow! I feel like it has been ages since we have conversed! What’s up guyssss I’ve missed you all! And hello to the new members of TeamCAPPA. Season is ALMOST HERE!!!!!!!!! Before I start talking about the draft though, here’s an overview of what Cap has been up to in Turkey.

GAME 1 of the FINALS Capo had 17 points, 2 steals, and 4 rebounds!! Fener won by 6!!!!

GAME 2 of the FINALS Capo lead the way with 29 points and 3 rebounds!! Fener won by 5!!!!

Now GAME 3 will be on Tuesday!!!! ONE MORE WIN AND FENER ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways back to the draft THAT IS HAPPENING TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This here is our current roster:

Liberty Roster
 2012 Roster
NUM PLAYER POS HT WT DOB   FROM YRS
45 Kara Braxton C-F 6-6 225 02/18/1983   Georgia 7

15 Kia Vaughn C 6-4 208 01/24/1987   Rutgers 3

Although her name has not been inputted into the roster, the Liberty have just signed Demya Waker (Mystics.) ……………………….

image  [We shall discuss Walker’s and Miller’s pick ups at a later date..]

So! We currently have 13 layers already on the roster, and of course we can only have 11 players. Time to do some subtraction and addition! I won’t be the one to say who deserves to stay or go here.. But I will be giving my opinions on who we should pick up! Sadly we have the 7th draft pick  However last year we were even frather up on the list, and we were able to get Alex who has showed us she has great potential!! This 2012 draft is not as stacked as last years one was however, so the Liberty will have to be smart about who they pick because I don’t see much room for trading this season.

MY PICKS:

Think to yourself, “What does my team need to be the last one standing??”  Well clearly we already have the best player in the world

 But clearly that just isn’t enough! What else do we need? Now a lot of these “professional analyst” are saying we need to go BIG! And I honestly do not agree with that. Piers is a freaking BEAST, Q is playing with so much potential I just KNOW she is going to bring it this year, and HELLO KV got Most Improved last season!!!!!! BIG is seriously not our problem here!!!! Cappie our star, that is clear to everyone, and although Cap ‘s talent was clearly God-Sent, she is a HUMAN. Cap can not continue to play the entire game and be 100%! We need another G that can come and handle Cap’s role when she needs to take a breather! Now yes yes, we did just sign Kelly Miller!

Who avg 7 points and 3 assist. I am very happy about this grab!! Brings leadership and basketball knowledge! However I am a realist… Miller is 34 years old……………………………… annoyed Miller is like a fitness nut, so her age really ins’t a problem for now. However I am just thinking of our FUTURE. Miller will prob gives a 1-2 years. But what next? Kia and Q are babies, we have many more years with them being our BIG’s! I want to make sure we have many more years with our smalls as well! Lei is just 27 years young, but we all know that she feels the most comfortable in the 1. Sydney Colson [if you follow me on Twitter you know that I LOVE her] But she didn’t get hardly any PT last season. We need a young guard that can come into the game making wise shots and passes. That is why I will stop prolonging this blog and just say it…….

WE NEED SAMANTHA PRAHALIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now if you are not sure why I picked a player many people may not be familiar with, remember that we have the #7 pick! We are not going to get Hayes or Nneka! Be real! Prahalis played for OSU! Although they did not go to the Final 4, they were a very strong competitor in their conference leading the way! Jantel Lavendar (Spark) played with Sammy last season, Jantel made all the shots and Sammy got all the assist. With the loss of Lavendar, Sammy had to step up BIG TIME in order for OSU to even win games. She went from AVG 14.5 points a game last season, to AVG 20.1 points this season!! Sam has brought in nearly 1000 ast in her college career as well as 246 steals! This girl is LIGHTENING FAST!!! Which is something else the Libs can use. I have seen many people call us slow before…………..not the best feeling in the world. Carson, Alex, and Syd are the fastest people on our team right now. We need someone that is going to push tempo every second she is on the court!!!! Here is some game footage on Sammy!

GO TO 1:20!!! WTHHHHH!!! Dude us not getting this kid will be just foolish!! We will never come across another guard that has eyes in the back of her head like this!!!! A great play marker is EXACTLY what we need! Getting a passer like this will create so much more opps for our BIGS!!!!! Not only can she get others shots, she gets her self shots too! I could not find a video but this girls crossover game is just NASTYYY. With the mentoring from Cappie, I seriously think Sammy could be the face of this team down the road!!

PLEASE NY LIBERTY GET US A BETTER BALL HANDLER!!!!!!! -Signed, ALL LIBERTY FANS!!!!

Lol. Cap is a clown! Just watch this video!

It’s only been a little over a 2 weeks that Cap has been in Turkey; And the country is already feeling her presence strong! Cap did not play in the first few games, due to jetlag. However the first time she suited up was to play in the teams BIGGEST rivalry! Fener vs Gala. Gala being the team that now holds Diana Taurasi, Tina Charles, and E.Prince. Despite these two teams having All-Star rosters.. FENER GOT THE WIN!!!! BIG win I might add. 81 – 65! Capo had 7 points and 3 rebounds in that win! And here is some footage of Cap with her team after the game:

[

Bu Cap Türkiye’de olduğuna dair bir 2 hafta biraz fazla oldu sadece oldu; Ve ülkenin zatenonun varlığını güçlü hissediyor! Cap jetlag nedeniyle, ilk birkaç maçta oynamadı. Ancak o kadar uygundur ilk kez takım BÜYÜK rekabet oynamak oldu! Fener vs Gala. Gala şimdiDiana Taurasi, Tina Charles ve E.Prince tutan takım olmanın. All-Star Kadroları sahip bu iki takım rağmen .. FENER WIN GOT! BÜYÜK ben ekleyebilirsiniz kazanmak. 81-65! Capo bumaçta 7 sayı ve 3 ribaund! Ve burada oyundan sonra ekibiyle birlikte Cap bazı görüntülerişöyledir: ]

So as you can see Cap is having a great time at her 2nd home! The fans take great care of her! She also had a good game this morning bringing in 10 points. Below are more pics of her in Turkey. And once I find links for you guys, i’ll post them!

Yeni Türk taraftarların hoş geldiniz!Bu Cappie Pondexter için bir numaralı fan sitesi.Cappiezaferi uçmak olarak bizimle uçmak gel!Kullanıcı Fener git!
 Team CAPPA we’re back in actionnnnn!!!!!!!!!!!
 Hahah! Capo has landed in Turkey safely and is dying to lace up her Kobe’s to get back into action!! As you know, or if you do not, Cappie left her Russian team (UMMC) and decided to take some time off for herself to prepare for the up and coming WNBA season/Olympics; However her plans changed when Fener reached out to her and reminded Cap that she had made a promise. Cappie’s promise was made to Fener nearly four years ago when she decided to leave Turkey for Russia.
I will be back.
Are words that resemble what Cap actually said to her Fener teammates and fans. It is now 2012, and as promised, Cappie has returned to play Fener ball for the remainder of the EuroL season! Cappie is entering the team that already has the best record in the EL; And with Caps help, no doubt that the winning streak will only magnify.
Here is Cappie’s first interview with an Turkish Sports Center since her return! Check it out Team CAPPA
Although Cap’s vacation was not as long as she had hoped, she was still able to get some chill time in with family and friends! Over the break Cap spent a lot of her time at her favorite tattoo place! Cap has 2 new tats! One of her grandmother, and one of her image consulting company.
 
Cap also has been going to sooooo many Knicks games!! (Despite their horrible record) As well as going to her alum game! Rutgers!
Cappie suits up tomorrow! 2/4th! I will post the link as soon as I can find one. Like I said earlier, Turkish links are harder to find than Russian. I will try my hardest TeamCAPPA.

Back to top

Yesssss the rumors that have been spinning around for the past year are finally being silenced! The whispers can stop because the truth has been revealed people!! Cappie just signed a contract to return to the beloved city of INSTANBUL!!

We’re headed to Turkey my friends!!!!!!!!

Now for those who are not familiar with Cappie’s overseas career… hmmmm….. Let’s make this short and sweet..

“Our” Cappie is a freaking GOD to Turkish people!!!! She began her overseas career in Turkey. Playing with such WNBA players as DT, Penny Taylor, Tammy Sutton-Brown, Ebony Hoffman, etc.  While she was dressed in blue and yellow; Capo lead the only undefeated team in Fener history! Adding another 2 championship victories under her belt!

So clearly you can see that Capo handles her business on the court while in Turkey. However I want you guys to truly understand the significance of Cappie’s return to Turkey! Overseas players are the people who invented “Die-Hard Fan!” Fans overseas will literally kill over sports! I would say there might even be more Turkish fans following me than Russian or American! So yes our Cap is in great hands!!

Capo heads back over seas in late January! Her first game with Fener will be on Feb 1st. Fener will be taking on Perfumerias Avenida that day. Which leads me to my main topic.

Games!

Now you guys know that I always find a way to get you guys links and live streaming of games. However, it also helped that UMMC [Capo’s former overseas team] Had many links available for the general public. Now Turkish sites are not at all as user friendly. Yes, I will be able to get you guys some links; but not all of them. Many teams in Turkey have website that want you to pay an subscription fee. Even though I will probably buy the subscription, I highly doubt that many of you guys will. I am currently speaking with different Turkish fans on trying to beat the system. I just want you guys to understand I am trying the best I can; so please do not be impatient.

Another topic..

Teammates

Capo will not be the only legal citizen of America on this Fener team. The current WNBA players are Penny Taylor and Angel mcCoughtry…. And of course all leagues have their own special and stupid rules. The current rules are as follows.

There can be no more than 2 American players on the court during  an EuroLeague game.

–That’s of course in my own words.

So clearly during every EL game someone has to sit out… Nowwwww call me cocky..i don’t really care.. But Cappie Pondexter is not about to be sitting on no bench! –However if for some reason something that ridiculous does happen; No now that you will not be seeing Cappie suit up that game. Reason I am bringing this to your attention is because the majority of the games that I can find for you, will be EL games.

No worries #TeamCAPPA Cappie is super excited to finally be back in Turkey! Which is one of her favorite places to be in the world! Sad she is not going to get the 5 month rest like she planned; She is still getting a longer rest than she has had in yearssssss.

Also!!!!!! Cappie finally gets to spend a birthday with her friends and family!!!!!

Yess Capo’s 29th birthday is in just 4 days people!!!!!!! Jan 7th!!!! I am going to need you guys to send her lots of love and blessings on that day!!!!!!

That’s it for now folks! Stay blessed!!!!!

UMMC/ УГМК/ EKAT/

Wow. The first half of the 2011-2012 season has come to a halt. Amazing how time flies.

But what’s even more astonishing; Is that this is the final year I will be writing about UMMC. In case you have not heard, yes it is true. Cappie is no longer apart of the UMMC organization. Four years Cappie has spent wearing an orange and white jersey. Being the starting point guard, and one of the best players on the team. Cappie is leaving Russia to head home and for once in her life get some rest. Since high school years Capo has been flying in and out of the country, doing what she was born to do. Although Cap is taking just a few short months off from work, I will now take this time to answer an absurd question that I keep receiving.

Is Cappie retiring from basketball??

 Let’s not ask anymore dumb questions. K?K!

This is a message to the Russian fans:
Вы, ребята, так приятно, и я ценю все, что вы помогли мне. Было так весело узнать ваше lanuage и культуры. Теперь я знаю, что определенные символы означаютнемного LOL. Вы giys очень посвящен моим игроком, и это благословение в нейсамого себя. Это заставляет меня чувствовать себя хорошо, что мой любимый игрокимеет поклонников, которые ее очень люблю и в других странах. Я не могупроснуться в предрассветные часы утра для игры, но я перспективные вы, ребята, что я буду продолжать болеть за УГМК, как они побеждать в каждом чемпионате в этом сезоне! Да Кэппи ушла физически, но не ментально. Cappi любит УГМК и так буду вечно! Пожалуйста, по-прежнему оставаться в контакте со мной. Я буду скучать по всем вам. Люблю тебя очень
——————————————————————————————
This is a message to the American, English, fans:
     Well guys, you won’t be seeing me blow up your TL anytime soon..sadly. Bitter sweet moment right? So thrilled that the hardest working woman in America finally gets to breathe….. and then upset that I am out of the job for the next 6 months. Not sure if anyone will understand where i’m coming from.. But running a fan page [A great one] takes a lot from a person…that person being me of course. Everyday I wake up i’m having to remember that part of me is 1000000’s of miles away in another country. Traveling with your favorite players takes a lot of loyalty. This is my job and I have an obligation to keep you guys in the know of everything Cappie is up to. Yes it is very tiring however I know I am about to miss this like crazy. I have a set schedule. Every Sat I am the only teenager in there right mind that sets their alarm.
[For instance, this morning, I woke up at 5 am…only to see Cappie not even get in the game 
]  Being an international fan of an overseas team is one of the most fun things I have ever done. It’s cool putting yourself in the shoes of players. Listening to huddles and thinking “what in the hell.” It really makes you understand just how hard these WNBA players have to work just to be an honest living. Of course I say this woman works harder than any other player. [Yes i’m bias, big shocker]
———————————————————————————————————————————————–
Cappie gives 110% regardless of what country she is. I believe this little break will give her just what she needs to be an even better player next WNBA season! And don’t forget this is an OLYMPIAN!!! Soooo much happening for Cap in 2012! So please please please do not think of this as “the end” of her overseas journey. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!!! That was so cheesey!
———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Lol Im in a great mood because I am thinking of the future! So please #TeamCAPPA stay positive! I will continue to blog and tweet on here and https://twitter.com/#!/teamcappa about anything Cappie has gotten herself into during this break.
Я люблю тебя и да благословит вас Господь
 It’s fashion time!!!!
—————————————————————————————–
ONE MORE THING PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Turkish:

Cappie Türkiye olacak bana soran durdurmak!Biliyordum ben size söylemeyeceğim!
 Russian:
Пожалуйста, прекратите спрашивать меня о Кэппи собирается в Турцию! Я не могу сказать, если бы я знал!
 English:
Please stop asking me about Cappie going to Turkey! I couldn’t tell you if I knew!
