2019 Champion Washington Mystics Mystify The WNBA
Expect Fate...

Masks off! That’s a wrap!

The NBA may be back…even if it is only preseason (yeah tell that to everyone in Tokyo, Japan last night), but don’t call it a comeback like the BIG3’s LL. Because like being here for years it never left. Yet the real dear departure we’re about to mourn is the curtain call on the great expectations of one of the best WNBA seasons tonight. One that’s been a Spark and a Storm, despite either of those legendary Los Angeles and Seattle franchises making the finals cut.

But instead it was the MVP with the face-mask, inspiring every Bradley Beal and John Wall Wizard in attendance to follow plastic facial suit, Elena Delle Donne who lead her Washington Mystics to their first WNBA championship crown setting the Sun on Connecticut. Mystifying like INXS for the leagues new sensation that’s about to live baby live.

And you thought the biggest thing in D.C. right now was top ten Japanese draft pick Rui Hachimura? A year before his nation hosts the Tokyo 2020 Olympics for what we’re sure will be a legendary rookie campaign for the ages.

Washington basketball looks as beautiful as the magnificent Mall right now.

Just days after Bradley Beal penned a poignant piece for The Players Tribune sports personality journal entries in support of all of Washington and worldwide basketball, man and women, the Mystics showed it was all about them with an 89-78 win over the Suns. Rising like the trophy they lifted to follow their first banner and the epic emotion you see in the photo above.

Caption contest, greatness, legendary, amazing, everything.

So much more.

So, so much more.

“It feels phenomenal, my goodness, feels so good. Hard to put it into words,”  the epic leader Elena told press postgame. It really is indescribable, but we have a few more to give it a go.

Even with Delle Donne almost done with more herniated discs than you used to have albums in your cars CD changer (get well soon champ), she still hit 21 (all in that LeBron and Kobe face mask), to go along with the Finals MVP (to go along with her regular season one), Emma Meesseman’s team high 22.

Holding the leagues best record and now the trophy itself this was sweet redemption of emotion for the Mystics in this Game 5 after losing to the Storm’s front in last years Finals. When they were without their Belgium superstar Meesseman in the mess. But this year with everything up their sleeve, holding all the cards, the Mystics magic wasn’t going to be affected by any weather. Come Storm or Sun.

Sure when it comes to these Harry Potter themed teams in the United States capital city the Wizards may be pulling something big out their hat this year. But nothing spells the Mystics quite like M-V-P.

Moore To Life Than Basketball

Give Moore...

Kobe Bryant yesterday said that WNBA greats like Elena Delle Donne, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and more could break ankles and bang with the big boys in the NBA today…and those ignorant to this inspired notion making jokes on social media to no real likes need to watch them work this season.

But one player who won’t even be playing in the WNBA next season this Summer is Maya Moore.

The Minnesota Lynx franchise face will sit out her second straight season as she campaigns for the release of an incarcerated inmate she believes innocent. Taking herself out of Team USA consideration for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan also, Moore wants to make sure Missouri man Jonathan Irons behind bars gets his fair day in retrial.

Leaving the Basketball court for the legal one, the WNBA’s loss is much more important to this man’s gain as Maya works relentlessly for Irons’ freedom. The 39 year old is serving a 50 year prison sentence after being convicted of burglary and assault with a weapon. Moore first met Irons in 2017 at the Jefferson City Correctional Center where he is serving his sentence.

Irons has already served 20 years. He was 16 when he was tried and convicted, albeit without witness, fingerprint, footprints or DNA evidence. Although the homeowner involved in the robbery testified that he assaulted him. Still, Irons was tried as an adult, by an all-white jury and convicted of the crime.

From poverty to the purgatory of prison, Jonathan maintains his innocence and Maya is fighting for it for the second straight year. Although she insists she is not retired from the game. But right now this cause is just too important for her to ignore. Playing ball whilst she believes the justice system won’t. Advocating for social justice, change, reform and ministry Maya is showing even more to her skillet than being adept at beating the buzzer. She wants to beat injustice. And it’s a race against time.

The former Rookie of The Year and MVP has taken the Lynx to the WNBA Finals six times, but what she could lead now has much more life changing importance. With full support from club and country the five time All Star is shining a light on what we don’t see unlike highlight after highlight.

Those showing scorn and making another tired WNBA joke realize this is bigger than the game which in turn is much more than your inept, belittling comments. And to those doubting Irons innocence. Everyone deserves a fair trial, even another one when it’s not black and white beyond a reasonable doubt. You only have to watch the latest Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx film ‘Just Mercy’ to see that.

Have some.

Maya Moore once emulated Michael Jordan’s legendary, arm spreading wings poster for an iconic Nike billboard for all the young hoopers looking up to her like a LeBron witness. But now she’s really extending an even bigger hand.

That’s Moore.

Elena Delle Donne With The Most Valuable Face Mask

Elena Delle Donne With The Most Valuable Face Mask
The Phantom...

Vegas may have all the chips with the Sin City Aces and Hollywood the L.A. big-three with Candace Parker and the Ogwumike sister, sisters. Whilst the team they just beat Seattle, a storm of legacy making to legendary players, from Breanna Stewart to Sue Bird. Herself making sport, entertainment and all inclusive headlines for her off-court partnership with US soccer star and World Cup MVP winner, Megan Rapinoe.

But it’s D.C. that have the capital star as Washington’s mystifying Mystics star Elena Delle Donne is the Most Valuable Player for the second time.

EDD MVP of the WNBA.

And she did it all nose to knee injury.

Detroit Piston Rip Hamilton made the face-mask famous. And then ‘Star Wars’ super-fan Kobe Bryant became the Phantom Menace when he wore one for a bit, mauling his man like a Darth Sith lord. LeBron also had his own black, Bat Bron (Happy Batman Day caped crusaders), phantom opera during his time behind plastic like a Hollywood star for the theater. Even the dunking muscle of Russell Westbrook brought some Bane brutality to his. This trademark trend just seems to bring the beast out of the best. You remember how Bird flew through the black eye of the Storm last year with one? And now you can add MVP Elena Delle Donne to the face mask Hall of Fame.

And famous fans were even wearing matching masks in support solidarity as the back-court brotherhood of the NBA’s Washington Wizards John Wall and Bradley Beal sat court-side, faces sweating.

“Thank you to the people who made my mask and my knee brace. There should seriously be MVP awards for them”, Delle Donne told Twitter later in an acceptance speech thread of humble thanks.

Washington Mystics Elena Delle Donne – 2019 WNBA Most Valuable Player

Elena kept the face mask on after her nose healed because…well you know it’s inspiring and intimidating and cool as hell. But the knee brace has been a God send Most Underrated Player Of The Season. After her nightmare playoff injury against the Atlanta Dream last year, this sleeve holding her leg together cap to joint has helped the reawakening of a legends career.

Even without the MVP or LL Cool J knockout, bell rocking comeback, Delle Donne was already one of the greatest WNBA players of all-time…let alone the right now G.O.A.T.’s. But take a look at her now.

She just may be one of the games greatest. Counting either gender.

Ignorantly don’t believe us? Well remember Carter, men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t.

How’s the first player in the women’s game to record 50/40/90 splits in a season suit you?

If you’re not impressed, suit yourself. Because Delle Donne don’t care. Right now she’s focusing on bigger things. Like beating the house in Las Vegas following her Game 2 win against the Aces. And after Hamby’s miracle roll from half-court against Elena’s former team the Chicago Sky, it’s time for the MVP to run it back in revenge.

Now that would really be an ace in the hole.
