Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird holds up the trophy after the team defeated the Las Vegas Aces to win the WNBA Championship for the fourth time Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020, in Bradenton, Fla.


The Seattle Storm won its fourth championship title Tuesday night, after sweeping the Las Vegas Aces in the finals. The team's 92-59 rout was the biggest margin of victory in WNBA Finals history. Can the Storm sustain this level of success? KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel talked about the team's future and the excitement of this past week with Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick.
