WNBA CRAPS OUT: The Miami Sol folds a month after the Orlando Miracle did. It looks like that the NBA is cutting back on their funding of the WNBA and forcing the NBA parent franchises to do more of their own fundraising, which means that some franchises--in these cases, the Magic and the Heat--are just going to fold up shop because it's too much of a hassle. The league hasn't said if they're going to kill the two Florida franchises dead or if tehy'll relocate to non-NBA cities. I would have to think Kentucky and Tennessee would be good relocation spots, they're underserved pro sports markets. Or they could give Mark Cuban a franchise; I would love to see what madness he would come up with in the WNBA. Heck, just make him league president and see what happens.
