Lady ballers are making waves, and recently guard Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm, became the first WNBA player to score 5000 points and gain 2000 assists when she reached the milestone against the New York Liberty.

While the Storm suffered a 78-62 loss, Bird took pleasure in the fact that she was able to put on a show for fans in the place where she grew up.  After playing two years for Syosset High School, Bird transferred to Christ the King, and the rest is history. The 5’9’’ guard is a two time WNBA champion and a nine time All-Star.

When asked about the season and her team, she said,

“The one thing I can say about this season is it’s been really enjoyable, and it’s not often somebody can say that about a losing season. It’s really the group of people that we have and the types of people that we have and how eager everyone is to learn. Both on and off the court, we get along really well.”
