MCCRAY'S JUMP TO WNBA ISN'T GOING OVER TOO WELL IN COLUMBUS

          The ABL Quest's Valerie Still, on former teammate Nikki
     McCray's signing with the WNBA: "What is the WNBA going to
     do, market Nikki McCray as the MVP of the ABL when they've
     never acknowledged the existence of the ABL?  I'm not
     against the WNBA if they truly are for women's basketball. 
     But so far, everything at the WNBA is, 'I got the money, I
     got the power, so I'm doing it the way I want to, and you
     just have to be satisfied'" (USA TODAY, 9/18).  In Columbus,
     columnist Bob Hunter, on McCray: "It's a short trip from
     grateful to greedy. ... By this summer, her perspective had
     changed.  She wanted three times more money, the right of
     first refusal on league endorsement deals and enough
     exposure to make her face as familiar as Michael Jordan's.
     ... [S]weet and appreciative Nikki turned into the
     reincarnation of Alonzo Mourning" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 9/18).
