Breanna Stewart spoke to social media to express her dissatisfaction with an apparent lack of respect for the decisive game of this year’s WNBA finals.
On Thursday, the Washington Mystics and Connecticut Sun met in Washington D. for the fifth game of the final. Despite the fact that this is the last game of the WNBA season and a winning match for the championship, the buzz around the match was not up to that of other sporting events of the evening. That did not please the star of the Seattle Storm, which referred to the attention that had an NBA pre-season game.
It’s a problem when the fifth game of the WNBA final begins in 6 minutes and we discuss the preseason of the NBA … not to mention its broadcast on ESPN2

Stewart’s tweet sparked reactions to the fifth ALDS game between the Houston Astros and the Tampa Bay Rays, as well as the Thursday night football game between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants, which was also held on Thursday night. These are the comments that confirm Stewart’s frustration with WNBA’s place in the American sports landscape.
The Washington Mystics beat Connecticut Sun 89-78 to win their first championship.
