As I predicted in the previous post the Seattle Storm are the 2020 champions! All teams faced some adversity throughout the season in the #Wubble. This is what made season 24 interesting. Some may say that there should be an asterisk next to the championship for this season.
Maybe there should be, but not because this championship was easy to win. Seattle played some great basketball this season. The way that they were able to go to Florida in one piece and win with so much going on. Hearts and minds were in other places and players were making their voices heard on social justice; on top of dealing with separation from home and support system.

Looking ahead to next season I wonder if we will ever be able to attend games again. I sure hopes so, but it does not seem likely at this time. Team have already begun selling ticket packages for next season. Once it is official I will purchase my tickets. Until that is confirmed, I am convinced that there will be another bubble. Then, what happens with the Olympics? Questions just lead to more questions. Hopefully, there will be more clarity soon. How many players would be willing to go through the #Wubble experience again? There were many players that chose to opt out for this season, is it possible that there will be more if required to do it again?
As a fan, I want that safest option for the players. This is much bigger than basketball. It is hard to know what will go down next season. The one thing that is for sure is that free agency is going to be crazy!
The GM’s of the league will have their work cut out for them as players return while having to decide who stays and who goes after players that did not have much exposure were able to show off their talents in the #Wubble.
If you have been here before you know my team is the Dallas Wings. My #Wangs are a total mess right now. Another losing season and now there is no coach. With how things have been going down in Dallas who would want the job? The talent that is here now is the only positive.
The team has so much potential and something big needs to happen soon or Dallas will find themselves in the bottom half of the league still searching for an identity. I do not want that. I am already getting my heartbroken by the Dallas Cowboys, but this is not the place for that.
I love the list of potential candidates that Swish Appeal put together. It would be so wild if Sheryl Swoopes could do it. Vicki Johnson back in Texas would also be crazy. Both are dreams that have a chance to come to fruition. However, anything is possible right?
Overall, I loved the 2020 season. While there is much to be figured out prior to season 25; I cannot wait to see how it all goes down.
