Your WNBA Finals Champions the Chicago Sky has easily transformed from being once the underdogs in the WNBA last season to your favorites to take it all yet again.
Being led by 2x WNBA champions, 2016 Finals MVP fifteen year veteran Candace Parker, Courtney Vandersloot, Allie Quigley, and 2021 WNBA Finals MVP Kahleah Copper, the Sky without question is a team to be reckoned with as they sit on top of the Eastern Conference 26-10 and that is why they should be favored.
The Sky has the chemistry advantage over the rest of the WNBA as they have found a way to keep their big three in Chicago this past offseason with maintaining Parker, Vandersloot, and Copper this past offseason, along with keeping Quigley who except Parker were free agents after the 2021 season.
Since the beginning of the season, the Sky have picked up where they left in the WNBA Finals last season and that’s being the red hot in the league that nobody would recommend playing against.
Copper is picking up where she left last season as she heads into this postseason averaging a career high of 15.7 points per game, along with 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 0.5 steals.
With having Parker as the enforcer and signal caller to run their offense and defense and still playing high caliber basketball even in year 15, averaging 13.2 points, 4.5 assist, 8.6 rebounds, and has a shooting field goal percentage of 45.8%, expect her to not be slowed he WNBA playoffs is right around the corner as it starts this Wednesday when the Sky host Sabrina Inosecu and the New York Liberty in Wintrust Arena (Chicago, Illinois) @ 8:00 pm ET on ESPN2.
