Detroit Shock are champs for third time in 6 years

It wasn't exactly a surprise development for Bill Laimbeer.

The Detroit Shock coach fully expected his team to go out this season and win their third WNBA championship since 2003.

And that's exactly what they did.

"This is what we thought was going to happen when we started the season. We knew we had a good team, and we knew we had heart,'' Laimbeer said after the Shock completed a three-game sweep of the San Antonio Silver Stars with a 76-60 win on Sunday.

Laimbeer knows a thing or two about winning, having been the coach for the Shock's previous two championships and also earning a pair of NBA crowns as a player with the "Bad Boy'' Detroit Pistons.
