End of Game
Elena Delle Donne was already a two-time MVP and perennial All-Star. Her performance through pain in the 2019 WNBA Finals turned her into something greater.
Mystics teammate Natasha Cloud says Elena Delle Donne played through not 1 but 3 herniated disks in her back during the WNBA Finals, but the 2019 WNBA MVP didn't let that keep her from her first WNBA championship.
The Mystics were right all along. Swept in the 2018 Finals, they said Emma Meesseman would be the difference. Thursday, she led them to the WNBA crown.
