    This is why WNBA fails. Now she gotta take like 1 or 2 seasons off. She’s the face of the WNBA right now so thats not a good look. She fine though! Her mans is lucky. I always wanted a fine chick who could hoop (still do). haha

    Candace Parker is the best thing to come into the WNBA since the league was formed. She’s a combination of talent and beauty. She’s a role model for young ladies on how to carry yourself. I wish her all the best. She’s going to have a baby and then dunk on you. “Super Mom”

  • James

    I wish it was Lebron’s seed. Shelden and Candace should make an NBA Starter tho.

    I mean her bro Anthony Parker starts, the kid will at least be that good but taller.

  • Wiz

    that kid is gonna be a pro in basketball either way…..lucky kid right there lol

  • rav

    Here’s hoping the kid looks like her.

    Are teams going to be getting their stars knocked up so they can get first round draft picks? A WNBA version of packing it in?

  • thesubwayconnection

  • Mr.Candace Parker

    Bron thought he had expectations coming outta high school, but after reading the comments above, you lot are placing MJ-level expectations on the child before it leaves the womb! Linkstigators are a tough bunch.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    Grow up, Moosie. I recall a naked Cavalier cheerleader with wine as a topic not so far back.

  • mr. carter

  • Fresh Goods

    Noooooo! Why did her sexy a** have a baby w/ ug-mug Shelden Williams. He looks like Worf from Star Trek the Next Generation, ugh!

    Why would she have a baby now?

    “This is why WNBA fails. Now she gotta take like 1 or 2 seasons off. She’s the face of the WNBA right now so thats not a good look.”

    That comment just infuriates me for some reason. I mean heaven forbid someone let life get in the way of work.

  • James aka…

    I’ll agree with Coco. It’s not because of pregnancy the WNBA is less popular, its because sports fans enjoy things in the NBA game that don’t happen in the WNBA. If more women in general were intersted in the fudamentally sound game, and became sports houds the way men are (or if more men liked to see well executed offensive sets over a bunch of 7 footers ripping the rim down), the WNBA wouldn’t be looked upon so poorly. After all, NBA players get injuries unheard of in the WNBA (Monta Ellis), and no one would argue that the NBA is going to lose fans do to male star players acting like invincible frat boys.

  • rudy2302

    stunned!!!but hey it’s her life and her right..so who am i to judge…but i’m still very shocked.

  • riggs

    hopefully theres another candace walking around NYC for me to holla at :(

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    He/she is dunking out of the womb!

  • Tom

    candace and lebron should definatly have a little boy together, imagine how good he would be.

  • http://www.bbl.org.uk Josh D

    Congrats too Candace, Shelden Williams is really lucky too have her, she’s hot!

  • http://hypebeast.com Spaceship Jay

    2nd Russ’s comment. Unfortunatley.

  • youngmuggsy

    Seriously every WNBA game i see there’s atleast 4 uncontested missed layups and some very shakey ballhandling. They only get called fundamentally sound because they’re less atheletic.

  • http://fdkl.com Jukai

    When was the last time an NBA player took a year or two OFF HIS CONTRACT to deal with “real life?” Once again, I disagree with Co Co’s interjection. Unless your Dave Cowens, you play the damn game!

  • http://fdkl.com Jukai

    co-sign YoungMuggsy too, the only fundamentally sound thing they do is dribble

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    Have y’all seen Shelden Williams’ head?
    Candace Parker’s career is over after she pushes out one of his monster babies? That dude is a hammerhead shark.

  • http://slamonline.com PolowdaJon

    Wonder if the kid will have Sheldon’s “egghead”?

  • http://www.myspace.com/hemantsbeats what

    Hahahaha co-sign Allenp. I was gonna make a hammerhead shark joke myself.

  • liza

    Now I know why they “eloped”….Scheduling conflicts my a@@….she was pregnant b4 they got married….

  • Ivan
