As Twitchy reported, the Chicago Sky defeated the Phoenix Mercury 80-74 on Sunday to earn their first WNBA title. It was notable because the Phoenix team blew off the post-game press conference; they just got on the bus and left after losing the game.
The Chicago Sky got their victory parade, and according to one tweeter, it was a “crazy scene.”

Barely restrained crowds !

Most of the crowd are just people waiting for the parade to end so they can cross the street.

Pretty cool they can all greet the fans individually 😂

Honestly I’m impressed with how the parade featured the team, the coaching staff, all of the season ticket holders, the league staff, and the first 50 to randomly call the radio station.

When there's more people IN the parade than there are watching it. Kind of parallels the WNBA viewer numbers.

Actually thought the WNBA went bankrupt and folded years ago. Didn’t know it was still a thing.

The NBA dumps tens of millions of dollars every year into the WNBA just to keep it afloat

My god what a super spreader event 😂

Many of the “assembled dozens” just look like confused bystanders who happened to be there anyway. I feel bad and a lot of secondhand cringe for the players who were made to wave at them.

Serious wokeness must keep that league afloat.

They’ve been known to walk off the court during the national anthem as part of their “social justice initiative.”
Maybe in a show of solidarity fans decided to stay in the locker room during the parade.

I love my chicago sky and think they deserve more local/national attention, but this is hilarious 😂

We might pay more attention to the WNBA if they played ball instead of pulling woke stunts every game.
