The Seattle Storm went undefeated in the 2020 postseason.
And now they are the 2020 WNBA champions after spending 97 days in the ‘wubble’ in the Bradenton, Florida for a shortened WNBA season.
Seattle swept Las Vegas after beating the Aces in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals Tuesday night, 92-59.
To have Sue Bird who is in her 17th season, which is technically her 19th season in the league, playing at such a high level, coupled with Breanna Stewart’s MVP Finals performance, the Storm have now won their fourth franchise championship.
The Pacific Northwest of teams and players (both current and past players) shared their excitement and gave their congratulations to the Storm on Twitter.
Current and former NBA players also showed their love for the 2020 Storm squad as well.
And spoiler alert: Sue Bird wouldn’t confirm exactly if she will be hanging it up or coming back to defend her 2020 title. She turns 40-years-old next month and said she is going to “see how her body feels” when she begins training again next season.
“I just kind of start working out and I see how I feel," Bird said following the Game 3 victory. "And I’m not trying to be illusive. Like, listen the way I feel right now – if I can go through my offseason and continue to build on that in a good way, I don’t see why I won’t be playing next summer.”
So cheers to the G.O.A.T. and here’s to hoping she’s not done yet!
