The Dream's Newest Player

It looks like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has scooped the basketball news again! They're reporting on the Dream's newest acquisition....

According to this Atlanta Journal-Constitution story, two Dream players made an appearance at an Atlanta event....

This year’s Frank Ski Celebrity Wine Tasting & Live Auction raised more than $166,000 for the Frank Ski Kids Foundation. Celebs in attendance included Young Jeezy, DJ Spindarella, Elder Bernice King, author E. Lynn Harris, Trumpet Awards CEO Xernona Clayton, Kenny Leon, artistic director of True Colors Theatre Company, and Atlanta Dream players Chantal Anderson and Tanya Alleyne.

It looks like they misspelled both "Chantelle Anderson" and "Tonya Alleyne". As for our mystery second player, let me tell you about her. Tonya is a 1992 graduate of Seton Hall University who is eighth on the all time assist list for Seton Hall. She was 139-for-190 at the line, hitting 72 percent of her free throws. She also has skills from behind the arc, shooting 44-for-124 for a 35 percent percentage from 3-point land.

Granted, Tonya Alleyne is currently Vice President of Media Relations of the Atlanta Dream, but I'm sure with a nice contract and some enticement we could get her out there on the court.

P. S.: Just kidding. Hey, not even the AJC is perfect!
