Washington Mystics officials and coaches told the Washington Post how disappointed they were by Tuesday night’s Detroit/L.A. brawl.

“I don’t think it’s good for our league,” Mystics GM Linda Hargrove told the Post.

I used to try to follow the Mystics, but this was the first and only WNBA story I’ve read this year. Highlights of the melee are the only WNBA highlights I’ve watched this year.

There’s not even a “Mystics” category on our blog.

It’s good for the league.

The brawl might not be good for Rick Mahorn, however. In every story about the fracas, the former Bullets Bruise Brother and current Detroit assistant coach gets sort of accused of hitting a woman.

Maybe not all publicity is good publicity.
