Words can't say how much this feel as a Original Mystics STH, coming home game after game with disappointment and finally joy. Wow, 21 years later a WNBA Championship Title comes to the DMV, Yeeeesssssss !!!!!

This thread wasn't going to be complete until you had shown up.

Congrats to the Mystics, and their fans - especially the ones who have been trying to support this team since day 1. It's been a loooooooong wait for this.

Just gets annoying. I much prefer to talk about anything other than the stupid refs. They've been a point of contention since the beginning of time.


Agree 1000%. That's just poor losers talking.

WE WON!!! WE ARE WNBA CHAMPIONS!!!

My only quibble was having The Sheila receive the trophy. We won in spite of her. It took so long to win our first because of her. Sit, Sheila, sit.


I couldn't agree with you more about Sheila. It made me want to puck when she was receiving the trophy and well just seeing her almost ruined it for me.

Has Finals MVP ever been a bench player before?

You didn't not say it. And I felt that it was a reasonable interpretation of what you did say. You appear to disagree.

I was just curious about her reaction. There is a good bit talk here about her being a homer for certain teams and drooling over specific players and I wondered if that played a part.


I mean, I have difficulty believing that Lobo is a homer for a team that didn't exist until after she was a pro, and they became a professional rival, just because they play in her home state. But, I dunno, maybe that's a thing that people do?

Actually it was Abe Pollin naming Wes Unseld the GM of the Mystics that took the team down the wrong road.

Last season? You mean, when they only got to the Finals in the first place because an All-Star got her knee torn apart?

Sour grapes isn't enough for you, expect next day delivery of enough crow for the WNBA off season.

I thought the #Hatehard code was one of the more simple and consistent ones around, but people are still coming to terms with it I guess.

You appear to be unfamiliar with the rules for crow eating: you don't have to eat crow, just because you're salty. That's not how that works.

Natasha Cloud informs us that Delle Donne was playing through THREE herniated disks in her back, not just one

The 2019 Connecticut Sun ended up with 5 players from the 2016 WNBA Draft first round [#3 Tuck, #4 Banham, #6 Jones, #8 Williams, #11 Holmes]. The two lottery picks ended up playing the least minutes in the 2019 finals:
Williams - 178
Jones - 164
Holmes - 63
Tuck - 36
Banham - 7

Messeman really impressed me in the playoffs. She has been working on her offensive skills. At least I don’t remember her having step back/lean back jumpers, spin dribbles and finishing at the basket so well on cuts and drives. And her jump shooting all the way out to the three point line is so accurate. She still seems to be moving at a somewhat slowed down speed to me, but the results are there.

I agree totally. I was very upset to even see her there. Coach T should have accepted the trophy.
