This will be the second General Manager in two years for the Justice as Dang will essentially be succeeding Kate Mitchell. This is a major step forward for Dang and one that surprised many as she had been a big part of the Gladiators. Many were surprised and saddened to see her announcement that she was leaving Los Angeles just 24 hours ago.
Seeing as she has experience managing Team USA for the Overwatch World Cup and has had front office experience for the last two year with Los Angeles, Dang should be a good fit. She will be walking into an interesting situation as before Stage 4, the Justice job seemed like one that no one would want due to their struggles. Now, it looks like a fantastic job with star dps, Corey “Corey” Nigra leading the way to the Justice not only have their first Stage above .500 but they are also working their way towards a perfect Stage. Justice fans will be hoping that over the offseason Dang can join Grant Paranjape in creating a winning team for the third season of the Overwatch League and one that will see the team in the Nation’s Capital.
