The Canberra Times brings word on major changes at the Canberra Capitals as the old guard tire of winning championship after championship:

The Canberra Capitals are without a captain for the 2010/11 WNBL season following Kellie Abrams’s decision to retire.

Abrams has led the Capitals to back-to-back championships in the past two seasons but The Canberra Times understands the inspirational leader will not take any part in the team’s bid to win a third consecutive grand final.

Also departing are Lauren Jackson, Nat Hurst and Abby Bishop. Coach Graf is really going to earn her pay this coming season.

Fare thee well, Abby. Sexiest knees in the comp!

I dunno…they still look pretty solid to me….
Alison Lacey
Jess Bibby
Suzy Batkovic
Carly Wilson
Michelle Cosier
Marianna Tolo
Nicole Romeo
Hannah Bowley
Plus there’s always the chance that Carrie will pull off some kind of recruiting coup mid season like she’s done in the past.
Look for Wilson, Cosier or Batkovic to take over as captain. Caps will be fine!
