“Sue Bird with the no look pass.” That’s one phrase that is synonymous with the brilliance of Sue Bird’s basketball career. I’m not even going to lie, I’ve been a HUGE fan of Sue Bird ever since she lead the UConn Huskies to two National championships from 1998–2002. Watching her play in college was like watching a well orchestrated symphony. With her assist finesse, beautiful stroke of her shot and her leadership skills, Sue Bird is one in a million player.
After her brilliant career at UConn, she transitioned to the WNBA. The question for college players, including Sue, would be: Could she handle the rigor of the WNBA after performing so well at the college level? The answer was and is a resounding YES. She has since lead the Seattle Storm to three WNBA Championship (and played with fellow badass Lauren Jackson). After 16 years (omg I feel old) in the WNBA, Sue continues to slay as she led the Storm to a championship as recently as 2018.
Let’s support Sue Bird by tuning into her incredible show in the WNBA and let’s hope she’ll one day appear on Uncensored Visionary.
