  • WNBA Finals- Game Three

They had done it.

The championship parade starts 1 p.m. Sunday at Seattle Center and will end at KeyArena.

For student Shea Andrews, the focus was on Sue Bird.

"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. It was really imperative that Jewell [Loyd] kind of become part of our flow, and I thought she did a great, great job of giving us that flow at that point.

Fans of the former Huskies paid close attention to the championship game.

Stewart, Bird and Delle Donne could all join Team USA before they open play at the FIBA Women's World Cup beginning September 22 in Spain.

Stewart and Bird have had each had a remarkable year, culminating in a magical end to the season that's been years in the making for their franchise.

The two All-Stars on the team, Delle Donne and Toliver, had a cute moment at the podium minutes after their season ended when discussing the budding chemistry the team has had over the past two years when the pieces first came together. Our team went through a rebuild and yes, I made a decision to stay. In Game 2, Stewart's 25 points were enough to edge the Storm past the Mystics in a 75-73 victory. "I think that they are really, really good and I love watching them play". They also claimed the title in 2004 and 2010. Despite that, the basketball legend has been trying her best to help her young teammates prepare for when she's no longer there. "This wasn't about me. From there they made it pretty easy".

"I'm not even thinking about retiring", she said Wednesday. Breanna Stewart added to her already impressive career by now being a WNBA champion and a finals MVP after winning regular season MVP earlier this year. She's confident in this team, whether she's on the floor or not. The Storm entered the playoffs as the No. 1 seed, and swept the finals.

These playoffs will be remembered for Sue Bird's masked heroics in the fourth quarter. Stewart dropped 17 points in the first half, too, going a ideal 4-of-4 from behind the arc. Stewart is fairly reserved on the court, and her quiet dominance can be taken for granted. At least until she suffered a knee injury in Game 2 of the semifinals against Atlanta. For any player in the league, that's a lot, but for Stewart it's become nearly expected. Stewart averaged 24 points in Seattle's series against Phoenix and carried the scoring load for much of Game 5 until Bird got hot late. Hayes, in her seventh season after graduating from UConn in 2012, was a second-round draft pick by the Dream. "What she did this year was ahead of schedule for us".

When Breanna Stewart left the University of CT after winning an unprecedented four straight NCAA titles, coach Geno Auriemma said that she might be the best of a long list of former UConn icons who have become WNBA All-Stars, Hall of Famers and future Hall of Famers. It really is. It all feels so surreal.
