Mostly because none are currently coaching.  But, it may also speak to who else is willing and/or available.

Kobe Bryant’s dad is LA’s new coach

From Mechelle: Joe Bryant a good fit for Sparks

It seemed to be sort of an “enough is enough” weekend in the WNBA. Friday night, coach Nolan Richardson stepped down after the 10th loss of Tulsa’s season, finishing his stay in the WNBA at 7-38.

Then Sunday, Los Angeles announced that coach Jennifer Gillom was being relieved of her duties, as the Sparks are 4-6 and have lost five games in a row. Assistant Joe Bryant is moving up for his second tour of duty as Sparks’ head coach. It’s also the second time he has taken over during the season.

Meanwhile, welcome to coaching, T: Teresa Edwards can’t help Shock from being trounced by Mercury

Penny Taylor scored 16 of her 18 points in the first half as the Phoenix Mercury built a big halftime lead and routed Tulsa 102-63 on Sunday in Teresa Edwards’ debut as interim coach.

Meanwhile, welcome to Chicago, the turnover machine,coach Pokey.

After the end of the first half, the Sky had an 11-pt lead (which ballooned to 17 in the second) and 7 turnovers. Then they got a case of fumble fingers (they finished with 19TOs) and Essence got her (goggled) groove back, and the Liberty snagged a 80-73 win at the Rock.

The Sparks came off a big win on Thursday night against San Antonio right into their fourth match-up against the best team in the league, the Seattle Storm.  It is hard to argue with the level of basketball Seattle is playing. They have the best record in the league because they have earned it — playing consistently good team ball with a core that has been together for a couple of seasons and some great new additions this year.  Going into the game, I still felt that if we played our best basketball and they made some mistakes, we could have things go our way.  Although we did not continue our win streak — Seattle beat us 75-62 — I left the game feeling that we really competed hard. Seattle just didn’t make enough mistakes.

and Clay Kallam: Peeking Over the Women’s Basketball Horizon; USA Basketball, WNBA Playoffs and Gonzaga on the come up

Yes, it’s pretty safe to say that Tulsa and L.A. are lottery bound, though the latest in a series of Minnesota injuries (Candice Wiggins this time) may cause the Lynx to sink to fifth.

That seems unlikely, though, as Nolan Richardson, as expected, is clueless in Oklahoma, and Jennifer Gillom, as some feared, can’t seem to get the Sparks all pointed in the same direction.

In the East, Anne Donovan, as expected, has done little to inspire New York fans who have been turned off by years of mismanagement by James Dolan and Carol Blazejowski – so the Liberty will need a late-season hot streak to get in to postseason. Steve Key, also a target for disgruntled fans, hasn’t done much with the Sky, though the absence of Shameka Christon hasn’t helped. Like New York, Chicago will need to catch a fire to avoid a place in the Maya Moore sweepstakes.
