The Las Vegas Aces win their first championship in franchise history after beating the Connecticut Sun in four games. Chelsea Gray was named finals MVP after the playoff run that she had to help lead the Aces to victory.
“They’re unbelievable on the court, but they’re unbelievable humans, first and foremost,” Hammon said. “They care about each other. They invest in each other. It’s been an absolute honor to be their coach. I saw excellence, and I wanted to be a part of it.”
“You see it. You see it,” Wilson said in the on-court celebration. “This is what we’re building. This is what we’re doing. This is it. I’m so happy right now.”
“My teammates are awesome,” Gray said as she broke into tears. “I worked so hard for this.”
“They can keep that All-Star and first team,” Gray said. “I got the ring.”
After celebrating on the floor and in the locker room, A’Ja Wilson and Chelsea Gray were asking questions when their teammate Kelsey Plum interrupted their postgame interview with a boombox over her head, something that JBL Audio would later co-sign because it’s their product that Plum is carrying. JBL Audio is also one of the official sponsors of the WNBA and NBA.
