The New York Liberty have had a strong start to the 2024 season under the leadership of two-time WNBA MVP Breanna Stewart. Stewart has had an impressive run during her seven-year career. Moreover, the star forward provided an annual WNBA Mount Rushmore list that includes the likes of greats like Candace Parker, and even Stewart herself.

Stewart was asked to name four of the greatest players of all time, and she named some great legends. Her WNBA Mount Rushmore included Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, and Candace Parker. Then, she caught viewers attention by listing herself in the final spot, as seen in the video provided by The Athletic (h/t The Score):

Is Breanna Stewart's WNBA Mount Rushmore take valid? Fans on X seemed to be skeptical of her list.

One user listed Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoops, Lisa Leslie, Maya Moore, and Candace Parker as their top five, with Laren Jackson and Yolanda Griffin tying Parker for the last spot.

Another fan claimed that Stewart's list was surely just for the era and not all-time.

Brenna Stewart looks to have more stout years ahead of her, so while some disagree with her 2024 take, she certainly can solidify herself by the end of her career.

Stewart started her professional tenure with the Seattle Storm when the team drafted first overall in the 2016 WNBA Draft. The former Connecticut Huskie made an immediate impact. She averaged 18.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, and 1.2 steals during her rookie year.

Stewart continued to take her game to new heights with the Storm. She earned her first WNBA MVP award in 2018 and led Seattle to a championship. The star forward continued her stellar contributions and won another title with the Storm in 2020. After four All-Star appearances, two championships, and an MVP, Stewart decided to take her talents to the New York Liberty.

Breanna Stewart looks to continue to elevate the Liberty

Stewart's decision to leave Seattle for New York in 2023 sent shockwaves across the WNBA. Her arrival at the Liberty formed what many considered to be a super team. Stewart joined All-Stars Sabrina Ionescu, Courtney Vandersloot, Jonquel Jones, and Benijah Laney-Hamilton, making a highly touted squad.

Stewart's first year with the Liberty did not disappoint. She averaged a career-high 23.0 points and 3.8 assists along with 9.3 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, and 1.5 steals per game. Her efforts earned her second WNBA MVP award. In the process, she helped lead New York to a 32-8 record and a WNBA Finals runner-up finish.

The 29-year-old is not satisfied yet. She and the Liberty want to win a title in 2024 after bringing back most of their stout core. New York was undefeated through the first part of the 2024 season until taking their first loss to Angel Reese and the Chicago Sky on May 23rd.

Stewart amassed 18 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists in the defeat. She and the Liberty will remain focused on an attempt to stay at the top of the Eastern Conference. New York has the potential to make a deep playoff run, but if they make it far enough, they will have to overcome the reigning champion Las Vegas Aces again.

Will Breanna Stewart lead the Liberty to a title in 2024?
