There really is no predicting who will take home the chip!
Okay so the post season is called and the teams are gearing up for playoffs! As you know you have top contenders Las Vegas Aces(3), the Connecticut Sun(2) and the Washington Mystics
(1). The remaining five teams include, LA Sparks, Chicago Sky, Seattle Storm, Minnesota Lynx, and the ever so impressive Phoenix Mercury.
There are lots of strong teams this season and you can't really predict who will come out on top. With playoffs starting on September 11th, teams still have time to make a last minute push on moving up in the league and improving their stats. Britney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury is climbing the stats ladder leading the league with 20.7 points per game.
Another player who is making her mark in the league is is Chicago's Courtney Vandersloot. Vandersloot breaks her own previous record (283) for most assists in a single season with an updated 258, and she still has time to make that number much larger. Russell Westbrook had 784 this past season but he is an absolute beast. I believe it will take no time to Vandersloot to match that stat. The Chicago Sky won over the Phoenix Mercury this past Sunday 105-78. Vandersloot put up 9 pts while Parker and Ndore put up 18 pts each.
All three teams that lost on Sunday put up points within the 70s. Seattle won over thr Atlanta Dream and although Sur Bird isn't playing on the court for Seattle- my oh my is she killing it with her fashion statements off the court. Bird was spotted wearing John Elliot x Nike Lebron Icon in Parachute Beige last week. The fashion game in the WNBA is stepping up and I am here for it!
There are only 5 more days of WNBA left before the playoffs, so if you dont have League Pass yet, make sure you get it because there is going to be some fantasic ball being played.
