The Seattle Storm take a 2-0 lead into Game 3 of the WNBA Finals in Washington D.C

Déjà vu, and champagne, all over again.

Webb, a 2002 graduate of Mountlake Terrace High School, is in his fourth season as an assistant coach for the Storm and was on the bench when the team won the league title on Wednesday in Fairfax, Virginia.

"We had a goal for this year".

The Storm took the WNBA title Wednesday night with a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics.

If this were the National Basketball Association, the Washington Mystics' front office might be making calls to players of Paul George's or Kawhi Leonard's caliber right now. The aim is that they won't have to go on the road for a month in the middle of the season because of a convention or switch arenas during the playoffs because of a concert or renovations.

Bird returned from a broken nose suffered 48 hours earlier for masked heroics, in which she took over in the clutch while scoring 14 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter of a decisive Game 5 win in the semis.

Once, twice, three times a champion! She burned with the desire for similar prosperity in the pros, and made it happen. Stewart drained all four of her three-point attempts in the first half to build Seattle's insurmountable lead.

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

Heroes abounded for the Storm. Yet less than a minute later, the Storm had the lead back to 15 points, completely shutting the Mystics down.

Seattle guard Jewell Loyd had just six points on 2-for-11 shooting, but it didn't hurt the Storm.

"Stewie was just wonderful", Storm coach Dan Hughes said. Seattle's Dan Hughes and Washington's Mike Thibault have enjoyed incredible individual success leading teams, but neither has ever won a title. Players were selected by position and received five points for each First Team vote and three points for each Second Team vote.

Bird understands her career is nearing the end, even though she remains among the league's best.

The season has not only been her most successful, but her most transformational.

Stewart was expected to lift a once-proud franchise from the doldrums and deliver a championship, but her first two years in the WNBA ended with disappointing first-round playoff exits on teams that were the No. 8 seed. Being considered the best of the best is huge props, considering the abundance of legendary players that UConn has produced in the past 25 years from Rebecca Lobo to Nykesha Sales to Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi, Tina Charles, and the list goes on and on. "There are times when you are exhausted and the crowd goes nuts and you are right back in it".

She cited now knowing Toliver's favorite beer, getting to know the families and pets of her teammates, playing games like 'would you rather?' while waiting in airports.

The championship was Seattle's third in WNBA history. The nucleus is young and still hungry, except for Bird, who is, well, not so young, but still hungry.

"Every one of us, one through 12, the coaching staff ... helped us reach this point".

And Bird became emotional in her interview with Rowe.

"Obviously each is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have - I don't know, just a different meaning for me because so many reasons that we already know, right, like I didn't know if I'd even be playing at this point", she said.

ED: "To get her - trust me, I know, I've got you, Panda".
