"I, unfortunately, wasn't able to practice a lot in the moments that we had off, so I was kind of trying to figure out my go-to moves as games were going on and just trying to get comfortable finding different ways".

For years, Bird has sidestepped talk about when she'll put an end to a Hall-of-Fame bound career that includes two NCAA titles at CT, four Olympic gold medals, three FIBA world championships and four EuroLeague championships.

With a 98-82 win over the Washington Mystics on Wednesday night, the Seattle Storm completed the series sweep and clinched its third WNBA Championship in franchise history at EagleBank Arena on the campus of George Mason University. The Storm entered the playoffs as the No. 1 seed, and swept the finals. She scored 17 points in the first half as the Storm raced to a 47-30 lead.

But everyone on the delirious Storm side may have been happiest for two people - first-year coach Dan Hughes, and the venerated veteran Bird. "She truly was the MVP of this league". She was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four an unprecedented four times.

Sue Bird, also a member of a Seattle's championship teams in 2004 and 2010, had 10 points and 10 assists. "There is probably no comparison to be honest".

The Mystics, on the other hand, didn't have a single player score in double figures, and only had two points off the bench. The team was young, and Bird knew they were rebuilding, but she chose to stay.

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise.

Stewart was a part of 151 victories and only five losses at UConn.

"I can't speak for everybody in here, but certainly I wanted to win for Sue every single day", backup guard Sami Whitcomb said.

In July Bird said that she believed Stewart opening up about her past had a connection to the maturity she's seen in Stewart this year, also noting that on the court she seemed more confident and driven.

Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and a WNBA-leading 1.68 steals during an injury-plagued season for Minnesota as she earned all-WNBA honors for the seventh consecutive season. We don't feel like we've peaked and this was it for us.

The Mystics began the season picked to finish eighth in the Associated Press preseason poll. Past year we were brand new.

She cited now knowing Toliver's favorite beer, getting to know the families and pets of her teammates, playing games like 'would you rather?' while waiting in airports. That's a pretty important thing to know about Panda. When asked how it compared to the other two WNBA titles she's won, she said there's "no comparison honestly". Alysha Clark has been the trigger of their suffocating defense all season, was again on Wednesday, and added 15 points in the clincher.

But this year, the Storm's third-year star fulfilled her promise in spectacular fashion. She missed Game 3, and while she returned for Games 4 and 5 and the entire WNBA Finals, she was a shell of her capability. Each lost Game 3.
