Storm on NBA Access

Make sure to tune in Saturday as NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad devotes an entire show to the Storm. NBA Access airs Saturday at 1 p.m. Eastern and 3 p.m. Pacific on ABC (KOMO 4 in the Seattle area), and if you understand why it's earlier in the East than the West, you're ahead of me.

Anyways, here's what you'll see:

This week, NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad takes a behind the scenes look at the WNBA's Seattle Storm and its newly-assembled all-star lineup. The show takes a ride to practice with 3-time WNBA MVP Sheryl Swoopes as she talks about making a change in her career after a legendary run as a member of the Houston Comets. Cameras also catch up with 1999 MVP Yolanda Griffith, who adds experience to the Storm frontline and gives viewers an all-access look at Storm practice. Two-time WNBA champion Swin Cash left the Detroit Shock for the Storm, and she visits a scenic overlook in Seattle to talk about her career transition. The heart and soul of the team remains the inside-out tandem of point guard Sue Bird and two-time MVP Lauren Jackson, and viewers will see how they've accepted all the new players into the fold. The show combines newly-shot all-access footage with a trip back through the NBA Entertainment archives for a rare look at this group of star players looking to make a run at the WNBA title.

Any idea if it will be shown on NBA TV? I know they sometimes show repeats of NBA Access. My local channel plays it on Saturday mornings, but I didn't see this post until after it had aired.

I'm sure it will be on NBA TV at some point, but I don't know when. You can keep an eye on this page for a schedule:

Also, these videos usually end up on WNBA.com at some point. I'll update if I see them.

I really enjoyed the segment on Sue's and LJ's friendship in particular.
