THE CHICAGO SKY ARE WNBA CHAMPIONS!!

Chicago Bulls

For the first time in franchise history … THE CHICAGO SKY ARE WNBA CHAMPIONS!!!!!

Despite holding a 16-16 record in the regular season and walking into the playoffs as an underdog with the No. 6 seed, the WNBA champions took down the No. 7 Dallas Wings, No. 3 Minnesota Lynx, No. 1 Connecticut Sun, and now No. 5 Phoneix Mercury in a remarkable postseason run.

The Sky struggled to gain the lead for much of Game 4 against Diana Taurasi and the Mercury, but the team closed things out with a clutch 15-2 run. In fitting fashion, the hometown kid Candace Parker was the one to tie things up behind the arc with just 1:57 left to go. The Sky didn’t look back from there, and as the final seconds ticked off the clock, Parker let it all out.

Parker came home after 13 legendary years with the Los Angeles Sparks to give the city she calls home a championship. And she did just that in one season. When you talk about Chicago basketball legends, I think it’s safe to say Parker’s name should be mentioned.

Congrats, Sky! Your turn, Bulls!
