   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 3, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 HERALD-ZEITUNG.COM I Sunday, July 24,2011 | 3B  Douglas’ 3-pointer leads East to WNBA All-Star win in SA  SAN ANTONIO (AP)  ('¿ippie PonHcxter scored 17 points and Katie Douglas h it the go*ahead 3 -X)inter with Sf».7 seconds eft, helping the Fast All-Stars hang on to beat the West in one of the clos('st WNBA midseason showcases in history, 118-113 on Saturday.  Douglas, the Indiana fever guard, finish(‘d with I S points and helf)ed the f as! win just its third All-Star game in 10 frit's—^and third in the last four. Con-ne( ti( ut Sun center Tina ( harles also had IS |K)ints for the East and headlined a r(‘( ord 10 first-time All-Stars  in this year's game.  Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebi)unds and was named MVP for the second time. Former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is the only i)ther player wit fi multiple All-Star MVP awards  Cash, the Seattle Storm'a four-time All-Star, was also named MVP in 2009.  It may have been the WNBA's last All-Star game until 2013. Next summer is the Olympics, and the league may cancel the game — as it did in 2008 — while its biggest names play for the U.S. national team.  Mihriesota lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson had 20 points and nine rebounds fa- the West v^ile starting in place of Los Angeles Sparks center Candace ftirker, who is out due to knee injury.  Neither side led by more than five points.  Tulsa's Liz (]ambage, a late All-Star addition following Parker's injury, scored 1.3 points for the West. Taurasi also had 13 points and Phoenix's Penny Taylor added M .

NT I PA leaders said they were studying the* written )ro|K)sal Friday, l)ut it's now lasic ally take il or leave it.  Packers president Mark Murphy told IcKal rc“[X)rters on ,1 conference call Thursday night that the league  ^ague it has  not on y is confident it a dc>al, but is ck>nc' nc'gcytiat-ing.  "We've put C)ur pens down," Murphv said. "Wc've negotiated in good tatth with the* union. We've rcMc hc‘d an agrecnnent on all the kev points."  We all should Ik- grateful tor that, bc't .luse tor a long time it didn't kK)k like two sidc*s would agree on anything. Owners who thought they had l)een fleeced in the last negotiation werc' dc'termined to make big changes in the way playc'rs got paid, and players were  equally determined to try to hold on to most - if not all - of the lucrative slice of the $9 liillion pie they had carved out for themselves.  In the end, the biggest thing the (>layers gave u|) was the easiest thing they could givt' up - contracts for players not evt'n in the* league yet.

Even that was softened, though, by an agreement to take some ot the* money tc'ams save in rcK)kie signings and ()Ut it in a pool for veteran player [)ertormanc c> and bc'nefits to ( urrent and retirc'd [)lav ers.  Yc's, 10 \ (»ars is ,in awtul long time to commit to a deal. But this is a contract players can live with. It's a contract they can -- and will -- vote' tor.  Let's hc)()e it happens c uic kly.
