The WNBA is trying to give the NBA a run for its money.
The Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks have met in the last two WNBA Finals, the Lynx winning last year and the Sparks winning the year before. Minnesota hosted Los Angeles in the season opener Sunday, and the Lynx unveiled their banner and presented players with rings.
Before that, while the Sparks were practicing in Minnesota, the Lynx played their video for the event.
Holly Rowe of ESPN:
The Sparks beat the Lynx on Sunday, but I don’t think that’s enough to override Minnesota’s power move.
