Sue Bird and company are ready to take on the Atlanta Dream at 6:00pm tonight. The game will be televised on ESPN2. A championship is coming to Seattle. Tune in.no comments
The Seattle Storm will play tomorrow in Atlanta for the WNBA championship. It's exciting for this city. Sure it won't heal the wounds left by Clay Bennett, but that's not the point. It's not about if you care or not. It's the fact that Lauren Jackson is the best player in the league. It's the fact that Sue Bird is the most clutch player in the WNBA. The Storm are the BEST team in the WNBA. And they are about to have a WNBA Championship to prove it. Good luck tomorrow, make our city proud!

Via Seattle Times:
"Bird made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds left Sunday and the Storm closed out the Western Conference finals with a 91-88 victory over the defending champion Phoenix Mercury, closing the game with a 15-0 run."no comments
I'm not going to lie to you and say I know a whole lot about the Storm, but it's been almost criminal of the site with the amount of coverage we've given this team. Thanks to those who have pushed for me to write this, the Storm more than deserve some love from SeaTown Sports. I know this won't make up for it, but at least it's a step towards the right direction.
Ever since 2004, for whatever reasons the Storm have not been able to return to the WNBA playoffs. This season, it seems like everything is clicking for this team. Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson finally have the supporting cast around them, allowing the alleviation of some pressure that has been on their shoulders the past few seasons.
The fan base is still passionate, and this team is dominating the WNBA. They just finished their regular season on Saturday night, finishing undefeated at the Key Arena with a 17-0 record. This can only bode well for their path to the playoffs. With home-court advantage locked up, the Storm look well on their way to another WNBA championship.
Their path starts this Wednesday. I don't care if you don't care about the Storm, because in my honest opinion, I am going to give this team my full-fleged support during this playoff run. They may not be the Mariners, Seahawks, or Huskies, but they are winners, and it's been a long time since I've seen a professional team from Seattle dominate like the Storm.no comments
While it is understandable that some people do not care much about women's basketball, the hometown Seattle Storm are currently dominating the WNBA. Self-admittedly, I am not a huge fan of the Storm, but I did go to the game today.
They looked good, real good.
The Tulsa Shock aren't much competition for the Storm, but regardless of the fact, it is clear that this team is on the verge of making history. Their 75-59 win over the Shock set the Storm's record at 20-2, helping them become the second team to ever start their season at 20-2. The Storm are currently undefeated at home and have already clinched a playoff berth with 12 games to go in the regular season.
Lauren Jackson is hands down the best player in the league; she can dominate inside, she is unstoppable on the boards, and she can hit shots consistently all the way out to the three-point line. Sue Bird is making things look easy with her flawless no-look passes and her poise in leading the Storm offense.
This team is special and is the sure early favorite to take home the WNBA crown this season. If you're not on the bandwagon, I'd suggest you jump on. You should have been watching the Storm all along, but these ladies are doing something special and I suggest you jump on for the ride.no comments
