There is clearly no love loss between Tina Charles and her former Phoenix Mercury teammate Sophie Cunningham.
Hours after Charles and the Mercury agreed to an immediate mid-season “contract divorce” over the weekend, Phoenix would rally to beat Dallas, 83-72, in their first game without the former league MVP. In the midst of that comeback, Cunningham reportedly celebrated the win by yelling “F–k Tina Charles!”
Charles was unhappy with her role in the offense and desired more shot attempts and a bigger role in the absence of Brittney Griner who has been imprisoned in Russia since February after the Russian Federal Customs Service claimed it found hashish oil in her luggage at an airport near Moscow.
On Tuesday, Charles would sign with the Seattle Storm.
Charles played 16 games for Phoenix before her departure, and averaged 17.3 points per game.
