They put everything in order on Tuesday night, beating the Las Vegas Aces, 92-59, in Game 3 to finish a three-game sweep in the Finals. With the entire team healthy in 2020, the Storm entered the season looking like championship favorites and delivered. Then, she went back overseas to play, until the COVID-19 pandemic cut short her European season.

"The players came into this season and they wanted to dedicate this season to social justice and Breonna Taylor and say her name", she said. The championship was the fourth in franchise history for Seattle and for the Storm's 11-time All-Star Sue Bird. "This group, we're chill". We're actually kind of made for a wubble. "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".

"You know, I don't even think about the games".

Stewart was named Finals MVP for the second time in her career. The 2020 vote for Stewart garnering the honor was unanimous.

Outside of Sue Bird, who will turn 40 on October 16, the core of this Storm team is young, led by the two-time Finals MVP Breanna Stewart, who just finished her fourth WNBA season with her second championship. (She missed 2019 because of a torn Achilles).

"I know it hurts". "The future was a little unknown for me as far as the comeback".

"The city of Seattle has always had our back".

Stewart since her days at UCONN was well prepared and now that she's a two-time WNBA champion, she'll be able to celebrate with her coach and teammates once they leave the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. There's so much of an unknown after rupturing my Achilles. "And you see a league that has always been activist but this year they've nearly become organizers in a sense.in how they've connected the dots between social justice and voting". "I wish I could give you more".

Stewart's ability to shoot at will was a problem for teams all year long and Bird's quickness to push the ball in transition kept defenders from trapping the veteran at the top of the key.

"We were able to do something as a league that on one else was".

"The way I feel right now, if I can go through my off-season and continue to build on that in a good way, I don't see why I won't be playing next summer", Bird said.
