SPEAKING OUT: The AP's Jon Krawczynski noted that with Lynx F Seimone Augustus' "adopted home state of Minnesota considering a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage," she is "now becoming a vocal proponent of equal rights for gays." Augustus said, "I felt like it was the perfect time for me, being on a platform where I can make a change with my voice and my situation." The Lynx are "looking to become the league's first repeat champions in 10 years." Augustus also is "fresh off a gold medal at the London Olympics, so she's hoping to take advantage of her increased national profile to help influence the vote."
