The Storm announced the signing of Yolanda Griffith today, a 1999 MVP who spent her first nine seasons in the league with Sacramento. The addition of the 6-foot-4 post gives Seattle three MVPs, four of the 10 players selected to the all-Decade team, or eight total championship rings - just depends on how you want to rack up the star power.
While Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett didn't have that much between them, the Storm could have a parallel season after losing in the first round of the playoffs the past three seasons. Or they could be like the 2004 Los Angeles Lakers when they added Karl Malone and Gary Payton and flopped in their pursuit of winning the NBA title.
Age is a factor. Griffith is 38 and coming off a thumb injury while Sheryl Swoopes, who won four titles for Houston, is 37 and had back surgery this offseason. Either way, the Storm should be a happier storyline than the Sonics.
