Quotes

"Champions. We are the champions. That feels so good," Taurasi said with a smile. "i didn't want to say that word all year because you get lost in winning a championship and you forget to do the hard work."
"She fights so hard, and she wants to teach you every day," Griner said of being teammates with Taurasi. "she brings the best out of you."
"When I saw BG on the floor the second time," Taurasi said, "i said 'get up right now.' i was like 'get up, we're gonna go do this right now.'"
