If you’re a New York Liberty fan, I understand how my headline has you scratching your head, but please know it’s the truth! Despite winning just two games during the WNBA’s restart in the “Wubble,” I still have a lot of faith in the Liberty during their rebuild. Why? Because it’s all about context.
We’re talking about a team who experienced another off-season of tremendous change between moving (again), trading away their best player in Tina Charles, and watching key pieces such as Bria Hartley, Brittney Boyd, Rebecca Allen, and last year’s No. 2 overall pick, Asia Durr, not return to the team or choose to opt-out of playing this season. But with that said, look at what happened.
In her brief stint of action, Sabrina Ionescu quickly showed why she was one of the most-anticipated No. 1 Overall Pick in the WNBA. Kia Nurse did produce a solid third season despite some initial struggles.
And in case you didn’t notice, Layshia Clarendon (11 PPG) and Jazmine Jones (10 PPG) held it down in the backcourt and helped the Liberty become more competitive later on during the regular season. All I know is next year, the NY Liberty could compete for a post-season spot if it all comes together!

this week, in professional athletes ribbing each other on the internet:
little jordin canada shredded alysha clark over how she wears her socks. then alysha scored the game winning buzzer beater, so maybe they should do this all the time? considering the rough few days had by the storm, it’s nice they can joke around— but also who wears socks like this alysha please explain.
megan rapione ripped her girlfriend and seattle storm player sue bird over the pictorial evidence of alysha clark’s aforementioned buzzer beater. this is just a hug of desperate relief and maybe possessiveness— THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE HERE PINOE. / amanda zahui b shaded herself and her former wubble roommates/current teammates kiah stokes and kia nurse for being equal parts normal and abnormal (i’ll let you decide if i think being a morning person is normal or abnormal lol).
lindsey horan let us know emily sonnett is being exactly as chaotic as predicted in the swedish tundra by posting this of her modern take on primitive survival skills. i am confused by everything except the forks. the double forks in the foreground make total sense here.
more lindsey, and this time the joke’s on her for bringing a dog who hates water to a city where it rains 154 days out of the year. welcome to the pacific northwest ferguson! it will only get worse. / jill scott made a joke about advancing age towards herself, steph houghton, and ellen white which tbh i don’t quite understand but steph seems to agree? monarchies require endless fascination.
speaking of britishisms, two months ago tobin heath posted this foreshadowing/easter egg caption and we all missed it. this joke was definitely on us. happy sunday!
She is funny AND sexy 😍
I love these three!!!
Ignore the man. We all know where our eyes go to first 🍑👀
If I started a petition to get kiah stokes to hug me would you sign it?
Just realized they signed seven new players…. last time a team I liked signed seven players it didn’t end well….
No FB games! Finally! All are televised
