Silver Stars Sign Vickie Johnson
As the Stars head into their 15th season in San Antonio, we’ll be taking a look back at the top 15 moments in Stars history. Below is our #13 moment, when the team signed now-head-coach Vickie Johnson.
In 2006, the San Antonio Silver Stars signed 10-year WNBA Veteran Vickie Johnson as the franchise’s first free agent signing. Vickie joined veteran guard Shannon Johnson in the back court. The duo then helped lead the Stars to an impressive 9-8 record.
“We just put that combination together, Johnson and Johnson, and just go out there and play well together,” Shannon Johnson said. “It’s been a lot of fun playing with another veteran out there who understands the game. If I throw the ball to her I know she’s going to do some great things with it. I don’t worry about it once I give her the ball.”
