Stewart was named the Finals Most Valuable Player to go with her regular season MVP award. But a crucial injury to their best player at the worst time turned a promising playoff run - which included a first-ever trip to the WNBA Finals - into a slog and a three-game sweep at the hands of the Seattle Storm. Sanders would return to the end of the Washington bench by the end of the game with her left leg elevated on other chairs and managed to crutch her way off the court once the Seattle celebration began.
In the past year Stewart has spoken up about her assault, posed for ESPN's Body Issue (as did Bird) and won both the league and finals MVP trophies.
The championship parade starts 1 p.m. Sunday at Seattle Center and will end at KeyArena.
"I think exposure is the biggest thing", said Currie about helping the WNBA game grow.
"We thought, 'Oh, crap, what kind of year is this going to be?'" Bird reminisced.
Trust me. I've got a full batch of BreakingT shirts in my closet, and they're the best shirts I own. "That was very far from my imagination". Many question marks surrounded Washington's offseason, from who in the frontcourt could aid Elena Delle Donne to how the team would adapt without the presence of Emma Meesseman, who averaged 14 points and 5.7 rebounds but announced in January she would sit out the season to train for this month's World Cup with Belgium. Natasha Howard and Alysha Clark played key roles, too, in a commanding 3-0 series sweep over the Washington Mystics.
The Mystics also gained critical experience.
The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise.
Maya Moore, Minnesota Lynx: Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and a WNBA-leading 1.68 steals as she earned All-WNBA honors for the seventh consecutive season.
"Last year, we were brand new", Delle Donne said. A reliable scorer and rebounder to pair down low with Delle Donne, Meesseman was an All-Star in 2015 at just 22 years old. For a game featuring teams from Seattle and Washington D.C., Hartford-New Haven had the second highest viewership for markets watching the championship behind only Seattle-Tacoma, according to ESPN.
Thibault has only reached the Finals twice in his career - in 2004 and 2005 with CT.

The shoes feature the image of Emma Webster, better known as "Granny" from the Looney Tunes cartoons.
"I've seen that before", Auriemma added.
Bird and Stewart have worn customized sneakers at times during the season.
Stewart was expected to lift a once-proud franchise from the doldrums and deliver a championship, but her first two years in the WNBA ended with disappointing first-round playoff exits on teams that were the No. 8 seed.
In consecutive years - 1978 and 1979 - the Washington Bullets and Seattle SuperSonics met in the NBA Finals.
Bird hasn't talked about retirement, and based on her success this season and Stewart's hope that they win more titles together it isn't coming for at least a few more years.
