LA Sparks looking to get back on winning track after two losing seasons in a row

The Los Angeles Sparks used to be one of the benchmark franchises in the WNBA when it came to winning games and championships.

The franchise has won two world titles and three Western Conference titles.

But in recent years, without superstar player Lisa Leslie, the team has been dogged in losing.

Last year LA was 15-19 and two years ago, they were 13-21.

General manager Penny Toler is determined to get the franchise back into the top of the league.

This team was very active in the offseason. The Sparks hired former Atlanta Dream assistant Carol Ross to be the new head coach. Toler acquired Nicky Anosike and former WNBA All-Star guard Alana Beard and they drafted Nneka Ogwumike.

They have other top-notch talent in former Ohio State star Jantel Lavender, DeLisha Milton-Jones, Ebony Hoffman and Candace Parker.

The Sparks did lose one of their older, reliable players in Tina Thompson, who is 37, the WBNA’s all-time scoring leader. She signed with Western Conference rival, the Seattle Storm.

They need Parker, the league’s 2008 MVP, to stay healthy.
