In one of the dumbest moves in WNBA history, the league is in full damage control over a video that has surfaced showing members of the Atlanta Dream franchise involved in a parking lot brawl with other women outside a food truck.
Hey WNBA dummies, this is actually good for business. The WNBA isn’t making headlines for games, but three members of the Atlanta franchise — Courtney Williams, Crystal Bradford, and Kalani Brown — involved in a brawl outside the “Tenders and Bites” food truck in a video that was reportedly shot earlier in the season is definitely going to make headlines around the world. This is actually great for the WNBA.
“The behavior in the video is unacceptable and does not align with our values as an organization,” the Dream told Insider, who notes the fight is believed to have started after someone made a comment about a player’s girlfriend. “We are taking this matter very seriously and working with the league to gather more information and determine next steps.”

You should be able to see Williams and her bleached hair throwing multiple fists as she defends her girlfriend from nasty comments. Insider notes that the tall woman is 6-foot-7 Kalani Brown who was waived from the team days before the fight.
Anyway…hell yeah, this is good for the organization. Sports needs storylines to succeed. This is the WNBA’s Malice at the Palace. This is what lands 30 for 30s.
What if I told you Courtney was next in line to get a tendies when some maniac called her girlfriend a b–tch (or made some other snide remark)? This is the story of the Atlanta Dream coming together as a team when one of their own was attacked.

The WNBA will go overboard and fine the current Dream players thousands of dollars (Courtney made $190,500 this season) to make an example of these brawlers. This is clearly not how WNBA players will conduct themselves when there are so many little girls out there looking up to them.
Let’s get real here. You know what I remember most about the Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII besides Joe Montana ripping out my little kid heart? It was my dad losing his mind when it was announced running back Stanley Wilson was suspended for the game after getting lit up on cocaine.
So WNBA moms and dads, show your daughters this video of the Dream brawling outside that food truck. Let them build storylines in their 12-year-old heads. Yes, I understand it’s violence and that’s typically horrible, but this is sports.
It’s just part of the game. Get with the program, WNBA.
