The New York Liberty select Sabrina Ionescu with the first pick of the 2020 WNBA Draft.
She’s the only player in NCAA history to record 2,000 points 1000 Assists and 1000 rebounds. She joins a struggling team that went 10-24 the previous season. She now joins Kia Nurse and Tina Charles in what should form a good team this season.
The clock is ticking on the career of 31-year-old former MVP Tina Charles but even without her, the Liberty are In good hands for the future. Kia Nurse was an all-star last year and many expect her to take an even bigger leap next year. Asia Durr has proven to be a talented two-way player tho her rookie year was hampered by injuries.
Sabrina Ionescu was the driving force behind the revival of the Oregon Ducks and establishing them as a powerhouse in the Women’s division. Her ability to stretch the floor and the all-around Brilliance she possesses could turn around a liberty team that has seen brighter days. Ionescu’s impact will stretch further than the court however, her personality is perfect for the bright lights of the big apple. While the WNBA doesn’t get as much respect as it should for the City that never sleeps it could be a welcome sight to have at least one team winning. With the knicks struggles and the fact that most New Yorkers shun the Nets like a parasite Ionescu could return winning Basketball to the great city of New York.
