Nate Parham is a long time NBA fan whose newfound interest in women's basketball led him to managing SBN's Swish Appeal, which covers the WNBA and women's college basketball around the nation. In addition to contributing to Swish Appeal and Golden State of Mind, he has been a women's basketball contributor for the Capital One Cup and espnW.

Nate has covered the WNBA's Seattle Storm as well as the Seattle University Redhawks and Washington Huskies men's and women's basketball teams. Since returning to the Bay Area, he has wandered around covering things from NBA summer league to Pac-12 and WCC women's basketball.

As a Bay Area native, he is unfortunately cursed with a love for the Golden State Warriors, which is only partially offset by the resurgence of the San Francisco 49ers.

From ESPN’s Chad Ford: Warriors want Kevin Love so they can make ‘compelling case’ for LeBron James by Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.

Now they're just toying with us...

Ford also suggests that it's Harrison Barnes - not Klay Thompson - holding up the deal at this point, as tweeted previously by Jerry Zgoda,

Mercury vs. Lynx final score: Brittney Griner had career night in 92-79 Phoenix win


It's hard to overshadow a 36-point performance by Maya Moore, but as Brittney Griner continues to grow as a player her career-highs of 27 points, 18 rebounds (including a career-high 5 offensive rebounds) really stood out in this game. She was both efficient and dominant; although she was only credited with 2 blocks there's little question that her presence in the middle had a defensive impact.

Diana Taurasi had a nice game herself with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists.
