There’s a whole Latta disappointment inside the Atlanta Dream these days.
Losing “is really hard,” said Ivory Latta (photo with coach Marynell Meadors), the Dream’s 5-foot-6 point guard. “It hurts. I may go home and I may shed a little tear here and there. That’s just my mentality.”
“I dream about winning. I dream about winning championships. I dream about winning our first game. I dream a lot.”
The Dream, the WNBA’s expansion team, is 0-10 and one loss away from breaking a record. Houston opened the 2007 season with 10 consecutive losses and five years earlier, Detroit opened 0-13.
If they drop tonight’s home game against San Antonio, they break the tie with Houston as having the league’s second-worst start to a season. It’s a good thing owner Ron Terwilliger said he wants a winning record by the third season. With 10 losses already notched in a 34-game schedule, digging out of this hole gets tougher every day.
