Thank you for cheering with me and thirsting with me and I hope to see you back here for more next season.
Instead of a standard matchup preview, because that’s not really my thing, I thought we’d recap some of the out players on each team and what to watch for from each of them.

Women athletes who came out before very recently risked everything to do so: their endorsements, their fans, their spots on their teams, their livelihoods, and sometimes even their own lives. Here are 22 lesbian, bisexual and trans women athletes who changed their games and changed the game for LGBTQ people by choosing to live openly.
Tonight we’ll see if the defending champs can claim a decisive advantage in the series or if it’s just another case of history repeating. If it’s the latter, and this year’s WNBA Finals can even come close to matching the excitement of last year, basketball fans are in for a real treat.
“That was our special thing,” Taurasi said yesterday. “We never kept it secret, we just didn’t want that to be an issue ever.”
