WNBA legend Sue Bird ends retirement rumors with epic video for last dance

Sue Bird, WNBA, Storm

Sue Bird isn’t done yet. Roughly a week after tweeting out an announcement about her return to the WNBA, the Seattle Storm superstar confirmed it further with an epic announcement video today. Just… watch this and feel the chills in your spine tingle.

Sue Bird has been one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, WNBA players of all-time. Drafted by the Storm in 2002, the 5-foot-9 point guard made a name for herself as one of the deadliest dual-threat players of all-time. Bird’s ability to lead an offense through scoring or playmaking made the Storm one of the most decorated teams in her career.

Bird’s achievements certainly speak for themselves: four WNBA championships and twelve All-Star selections. Couple that with her strong presence for the US women’s basketball team, and you have a worth resume for the GOAT WNBA player. Despite playing well into her 30s and early 40s, Bird has maintained her stellar performances throughout the year.

The Seattle Storm were a dangerous team last season, thanks in part to Bird’s solid performance in the regular season. She averaged 10.0 points and 5.3 assists on a lethal 41.9% shooting from deep. However, the Storm were bounced out of the WNBA playoffs by the Phoenix Mercury in the second round. A big part of that loss was Bird’s successor Breanna Stewart missing the game due to injury.

Knowing Sue Bird’s competitive nature, she likely didn’t want to retire on a loss. We’ll see if her, along with Stewart, can bring the Storm one last championship before she hangs up her sneakers for good.
