Storming To The Championship
The Seattle Storm are the only team that provides any hope in the Emerald City of winning a championship. Sue Bird, Swin Cash, and Lauren Jackson comprise a nice nucleus and will be difficult to stop in the playoffs. The biggest obstacle in their path happens to be the most dominant player in the league. Diana Taurasi is the WNBA's reigning MVP and defending WNBA champion. The Western conference finals will come down to a battle amongst Huskies and Sue Bird has something to prove. The stakes are high for friendly rivals Bird and Taurasi and somewhere Geno Auriemma is smiling. How hard could it be to recruit when all you have to do is tell young athletes to turn on the television and see what happens when you go to UConn? In the end Sue bird's Storm are a better team than Taurasi's Mercury and the Storm have yet to lose a game at home. The Storm have home court advantage in the Series so I like their chances. Seattle embraces women's basketball more than other cities and I know the support will be there to help the Storm get over the hump. That being said they still have to find a way to stop Taurasi from having monster games and dominating the series. This type of rivalry is good for the league and serves as an inspiration for young lady ballers everywhere. Young Sam Rothstein predicts the Storm in 3 on their way to their 2nd WNBA title. Let's see if Sue Bird can beat her home girl.
