Mystics Aerial Powers tells Heat forward Andre Iguodala to 'put some respect' on her name after career night


If you can take three seconds to compose a tweet, you can take another three seconds to identify one of the top players on the defending WNBA Champion Washington Mystics, Aerial Powers.

For some odd reason, Miami Heat forward Andre Iguodala failed to utilize the abundance of technology available to him Tuesday evening. 

The Mystics beat the Connecticut Sun in a WNBA Finals rematch Tuesday, 94-89, and Powers was a huge part of it.  In a career night, she scored an extremely efficient 27 points (10/14 FG, 4/6 3P), four rebounds, and three dimes. 


Her performance caught the attention of basketball fans across the globe, including Iguodala who took to social media to offer "kudos."

"Number #23 from the Mystics is nice!" Iguodala said on Twitter — that tweet, however, didn't go over quite well with Powers. 

"Put some respect on my name or keep this tweet to yourself!!" Powers responded.

Since then, Iguodala responded with a tweet saying "... no manners."

Powers has a point. It's difficult to imagine not being able to catch her name in a night when the broadcasters were seemingly yelling it every play because of her incredible performance.

And even if you didn't hear it, just Google it, man...

The Mystics (2-0) are back in action in the "Wubble" Thursday night against Breanna Stewart and the Seattle Storm (2-0).

Washington won two of the three meetings with Seattle last season. Powers scored 16 in the most recent get-together, an 88-59 win for the Mystics on Aug. 14.
