Seattle Storm wins 3rd WNBA championship

2018 All-WNBA Teams Announced: MVP Stewart Headlines First Team, Taurasi Selected for Record 13th Time

2018 All-WNBA Teams Announced: MVP Stewart Headlines First Team, Taurasi Selected for Record 13th Time

Seattle ended up losing that game by 2 points, and in an essay for The Players' Tribune Bird said that she was proud of the team because they proved they could do it without her - something she's been pushing them to realize all season. League MVP Breanna Stewart scored 30 points in the victory and was selected Finals MVP after averaging 25.6 points through the three games.

Sue Bird says she will not visit the White House if the Seattle Storm is invited after winning the WNBA championship.

When Storm coach Dan Hughes was hired after last season he told Bird that he hoped he could get her one more. Kristi Toliver had 22 points.

What took place on Wednesday night on the campus of George Mason University, in a green-and-yellow arena turned red-and-blue, would have been hard to imagine just two years ago. Sanders would return to the end of the Washington bench by the end of the game with her left leg elevated on other chairs and managed to crutch her way off the court once the Seattle celebration began.

But this year, the Storm's third-year star fulfilled her promise in spectacular fashion.

Now in its 22 season, the league continues its struggle for mainstream support.

What was billed as a battle between two of the league's most lethal three-point shooting teams turned into a one-sided display for the Storm. This has been an outstanding season for this team and without a doubt, their best season in franchise history. She had 13 points, four assists and four rebounds in Sunday's game cheered on by the Storm's fans.

Check out the brand new t-shirt - which honors the Storm's previous titles and their current roster - below. After eliminating Phoenix in a thrilling five-game series in the 2018 WNBA Semifinals, the Storm collected two triumphs in the Emerald City against Washington (89-76 on September 7; 75-73 on September 9) before defeating the Mystics on Wednesday to complete the sweep.

The Storm did it in style, completing a three-game sweep of the Washington Mystics on Wednesday with a 98-82 win in Fairfax, Virginia. So it's incredible to be sitting here right now, I was just saying this earlier, I really believe it just came to me. Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner were not with the team for those two games due to their participation in the WNBA playoffs, but did join them for the trip to France. "We're already onto the next thing". Washington went on a 16-3 run to again close their deficit to just five points as Tierra Ruffin-Pratt had eight points in six second-half minutes. "Now I can go to the bar and order her everything she needs". "To do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react".

"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", the 37-year-old veteran point guard said.
