LeBron James congratulates Seattle Storm on WNBA title

Storm forward Breanna Stewart signs autographs for fans before game one of the WNBA Finals as the Seattle Storm take on the Washington Mystics at Key Arena in Seattle Friday

Stewart wouldn't allow this series to extend past Game 3, she was eager to get the champagne popping.

To win the first championship in franchise history, the third-seeded Mystics must win three straight games, something no WNBA team has done in the best-of-five Finals.

While Seattle won championships in 2010 and 2004, Washington is the last WNBA team to reach the Finals.

It's the Western Conference franchise's third National Basketball Association championship after Australian Lauren Jackson led the side to titles in 2004 and 2010. "Best feeling in the world".

"To have their own place, not to worry about being bounced out in the playoffs, that's something that will be in the past for the Mystics, and I think that's a great thing", she said. "She truly was the MVP of this league. Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs". "We were champions again".

What Stewart has done the seven years since is no surprise to her. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer.

"We were celebrating, and I am sure we will continue", she said.

"I don't know if we'd lean one way or another", she said, adding that she's been to the White House several times and that it's "nothing new to me". We went through a rebuild a couple of years ago, and who would know we get here this quickly. It's not like we haven't seen her do this before.

But the Storm have yet to win on the road in the playoffs, despite posting the best road record in the regular season. The Mystics were relegated to Smith Center on the campus of George Washington for their home Semifinals games, but scheduling issues there pushed Wednesday night's WNBA Finals game all the way out to Fairfax. Sue Bird can still do it, even at the age of 37 and being the oldest player in the WNBA just got a storybook ending to a fantastic career. The others are Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes, Tamika Catchings, and Brittney Griner. Stewart dropped 17 points in the first half, too, going a ideal 4-of-4 from behind the arc. Hayes, in her seventh season after graduating from UConn in 2012, was a second-round draft pick by the Dream.

As expected, her numbers in the three-game sweep of the Washington Mystics were outstanding: 25.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.7 steals, 51.0 percent shooting from the field and 54.5 percent shooting from three.

Taurasi, the WNBA's all-time leading scorer, tied for third in the league at 20.7 points per game and was fourth in assists at 5.3 per game.

"We can really create something here, and I think we've really grown this fan base", said Delle Donne.

Forward Natasha Howard added a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Storm.
