Sue Bird stands alone in WBA history with epic new record
Seattle Storm superstar Sue Bird may be retiring after the 2022 season, but she’s not done making history and adding more accolades to her already legendary WNBA career.
On Wednesday against the Las Vegas Aces, Bird helped propel the Storm to a huge 88-78 win, scoring 13 points while making two rebounds and six assists. In the process, she became the winningest player in WNBA history with 324 wins.
As ESPN Stats & Info noted, she broke a tie with Lindsay Whalen for the incredible record.

While Sue Bird breaking the record was only a matter of when rather than if, especially considering how the Storm are playing this year, it doesn’t make it less impressive. After all, how many players in the league can actually say they won more than 300 games?
Bird is definitely a role model for both longevity and success in the WNBA, having won four championships in her career and 13 All-Star selections on top of several other recognitions. It’s no wonder why she’s considered one of the greatest players to ever play in the league.
The fact that Sue will be ending her career as the winningest player is certainly a fitting way to exit the league as well–even though she is definitely far from over when it comes to piling more records.
