Ben York’s countdown of the best players in the WNBA continues to move forward on Slamonline.com, and this week York has spotlighted Storm point guard Sue Bird, ranking her No. 6 in the league. After listing off Bird’s various championships and honors, York notes:
Quite a list of accomplishments, eh? To have that successful of a career, in college and as a pro, is extraordinary and something very few players would be able to match.
Then, after finishing the list, I had something of an epiphany – Sue Bird, in spite of all those accolades, is one of the most underrated players in the WNBA.
Yes, you read that sentence correctly. No, I’m not crazy (in spite of what many of you think).
York also discussed his thought process on where to rank Bird with WNBA.com’s Frank Della Femina in a podcast.
