Dream Catchers

by George and Barbara Barany

This "mid-week level" puzzle (17x15) was released just in time for the 2013 WNBA Finals.  Bonus points to any solver who can deconstruct the puzzle's title, and the photo to the right.  After completing the puzzle (spoiler), you may want to click here (21-Across), here (29-Across), here (44-Across), here (63-Across), here (70-Across), and here (title of puzzle) to learn more about All-Stars and teams revealed in the puzzle. Update October 11, 2013: Click here for a photoessay about the 70-Across championship season.
