Seattle Storm win 4th WNBA championship

26 Novembre, 2020, 13:22 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

This is Seattle's fourth championship overall and second in the last three years, previously winning it all in 2004, 2010 and 2018.

Stewart finished Game 3 of this series with 26 points, setting a WNBA record by scoring more than 20 points in six consecutive WNBA Finals games.

"We have a solid group around us. What we did in 2018, to get stung by injuries in 2019 and not have everyone back in 2020 and still be playing at the same level if not better is motivating for us".

Stewart was runner-up to the Aces' A'ja Wilson for regular season MVP this season, after averaging 19.7 points and 8.3 rebounds, coming off an Achilles tear that sidelined her for the entire 2019 season.

Breanna Stewart has added another impressive accomplishment to her impressive career.

For all the success she's had (and it's A LOT of success), Stewart can still crush the celebration. Taylor, a 26-year-old Black EMT, was.

"It's been a really tough but rewarding season", said Sue Bird, who earns her fourth WNBA championship ring, all with Seattle.

Houston Comets' Cynthia Cooper, Los Angeles Sparks' Lisa Leslie, Phoenix Mercury's Diana Taurasi and the Minnesota Lynx's Sylvia Fowles are the only players to win two WNBA finals MVP awards.

It was an unprecedented season for the league, which took place in Bradenton, Florida, in what was deemed the "wubble", a play on words for the bubble, because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2020 WNBA Finals between Seattle and the Las Vegas Aces averaged 440,000 viewers for the three-game series, up 15% over the 2019 WNBA Finals through Game 5 and up 14% over a year ago through Game 3.

Stewart shot 71.4 percent from the field and 3 of 4 from deep, adding 4 rebounds on Tuesday. But when playoff time came around, Bird was ready to lead the Storm back to another title. And in 2020, she returned to win yet another championship. Bird, who turns 40 next week, has been a part of all four of the Storm championships during three decades. In its place were countless hours of rehab as she worked her way back to full strength.

If Bird is healthy, it would be hard to see her not come back and give it another go, especially with the Tokyo Olympics in play. She could become a five-time Olympic gold medalist - something never done in women's basketball.
