In a familiar flurry of purple and gold, the two-time WNBA champion Sparks continue to blaze through their 16th campaign and contend for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. After missing the playoffs a year ago for only the second time since 1998, the team has returned to its dominant self in 2012, compiling a 15–6 record behind 25-year coaching veteran Carol Ross and rookie forward Nneka Ogwumike. Ogwumike—who led the Stanford Cardinal to four consecutive Final Four appearances—has already made her presence known, averaging 14.1 points per game through 20 games and ransacking the paint nightly for rebounds and clues to the Staples Center’s famous hidden treasure chest. Candace Parker, the 2008 MVP and Rookie of the Year, continues to shut down opposing stars after earning an early commendation as the league’s player of the month in July.
As a special promotion on August 25, the Sparks welcome rapper Baby Bash and Cuban-American singer-songwriter Jon Secada for a postgame concert. Last Comic Standing winner Felipe Esparza will join in with a standup set, eliciting raucous laughs that will lift spirits to heights matched only by getting slam-dunked by canine mascot Sparky.
