Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and the Seattle Storm absolutely dominated the Las Vegas Aces to win their fourth WNBA championship.
Stewart, who averaged 25.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists, was the WNBA Finals MVP, and Bird added to an incredible string of championships. The 92-59 victory was the largest margin of victory in WNBA Finals history.
Bird has been a member of all four of the Storm’s WNBA title teams.
The championship brought congratulations from all over the sports world.
