When one thinks of “girl power,” there’s no way you can forget the awesome and talented women who bust their tails every year in the WNBA. From extreme daily practices to long weeks away from home, these women put in the work to be the best; yes, even better than the men. Only other athletes understand the sweat, tears, and sometimes blood that goes into being a champion. With the NBA wrapping up their season (Go Warriors!), the WNBA began their 20th season this past Saturday (May 14), and the teams selected to start the season did not disappoint. Before we move forward, take a look at where it all started and the magic that ignited the league.

The Dallas Wings verses the Indiana Fever, the New York Liberty verses the Washington Mystics, the Phoenix Mercury verves the Minnesota Lynx (the defending champions), the Atlanta Dream verses the San Antonio Stars and the Connecticut Sun verses the Chicago Sky; these teams opened up the 20th Anniversary season of the WNBA and did not fail to entertain.  What will be different this season?  Well, according to WNBA correspondent Michelle Smith, the top eight ranked teams in the league will make it to the post season, meaning two teams in the same conference could possibly win the WNBA title. The comebacks of Diana Taurasi and Glory Johnson were celebrated by fans but Johnson still has to remain seated for 7 games due to her domestic violence incident last season.

This season is one to tune into. If you’ve never watched a WNBA game, then you’re truly missing out on some of the best and most competitive women in sports history. These ladies not only run their homes, take care of their offspring and keep it cute, but they make sure to bring their A-game every night! Who is your favorite WNBA team?

GOOD LUCK LADIES, and may the best teams WIN!  Take a look back at the first WNBA Dynasty.
