New York Liberty Advance To WNBA Finals After 20 Years

New York City is finally headed to a basketball championship, but it won’t be with the New York Knicks. It’s the New York Liberty who are taking NY fans to the WNBA championship.

The upcoming championship game, slated for Sunday, Oct. 8, will pit the Liberty against the Las Vegas Aces – the only team with a better record than the Liberty. Las Vegas is the current WNBA champion, trying to hold on to that title for another year.
“I think it’s good. That’s the narrative everyone wanted at the start,” Liberty coach Sandy Brondello said.

“I didn’t particularly like the superteam thing … [but] it’s going to be a great series and it’s a promotion for the WNBA, isn’t it? It’s New York, we haven’t done it for so long, but we’re playing the champions from last year. I think it’s going to be a really competitive series and hopefully, more and more people turn their eyes into the game and we can continue to grow it.”
