Breanna Stewart can add the Best WNBA Player ESPY award to her list of accomplishments from the past year.

Stewart led the Storm to a WNBA championship in the 2020 bubble, earning Finals MVP honors with her performance in the series. The three-time All-Star also finished second in 2020 WNBA MVP voting to Las Vegas’ A’ja Wilson.

In her acceptance speech, Stewart highlighted the role the WNBA plays in the fight for equality. “In the WNBA, it’s bigger than basketball,” she said. “We’re continuing to fight for social justice, for social change.”

Stewart beat out Wilson, Arike Ogunbowale and Candace Parker for the ESPY.
