: : Granada is by far the best team in City this year. Debate me if you don't agree.
: :Are they a better team than last year? If not, then they might be in trouble because ElCo has a stud transfer from Nade.
As of now, I would agree Granada is the favorite for the City title. I still say Narbonne can give them trouble because of the constant pressure they can bring the entire game, which has long been a problem for Granada.
Anyway, much like most teams, I don't see them being better than last year.
Mitchell and Miranda were way to vital to what they try to do. The new PG is a nice player but cannot do the things Mitchell could. And Miranda was a big reason Berfield got so many open looks, as many teams doubled her at the high post and she would effectively pass out of it. Or if they didn't double her, she could drop the elbow shot with regularity against most defenders.
To me, the key to GH this year is the big post. Last year, she was not an option in their offense. If they don't incorporate her this year, teams will just sit on Berfield. And she is a really good shooter, but basically, she is the one who scares you, so teams will scheme to not give her the open shots she got last year.
So at this point, the title is theirs to lose. But in a match up against last year's team, I would take last year's version every time.
