Layshia Clarendon is grateful for the Minnesota Lynx.

Following a loss to the Chicago Sky in the second round of the playoffs, they tweeted about how losing “sucks in ways that make everything come crashing down.”

“But/and I am so full of gratitude for my Lynx family,” they continued. “They have been my landing place in a tough season of life.”

Clarendon has been a game-changer for the Minnesota Lynx after signing with them on a free-agent contract. With Clarendon at the helm, the Lynx bounced back from an 0-4 start to secure the third seed in the 2021 WNBA Playoffs.

Last Friday also saw Clarendon announced as the August recipient of the WNBA Cares Community Assist Award.
