Kahleah Copper crowned WNBA Finals MVP


Kahleah Copper is the 2021 WNBA Finals MVP.

The Sky star was awarded the honor following the team’s championship-sealing 80-74 win over the Phoenix Mercury.

Copper has been the anchor for Chicago throughout the playoffs, putting up 18.2 points per game, with 53.2 percent shooting. The 27-year-old took on Phoenix’s veteran opposition with poise during the Finals as well, notching 22 points and shooting 60 percent from the field for a series-turning Game 3 win.

“I worked so hard and my teammates and my coaches believed in me, and I just stayed down until it was my turn,” said Copper during the MVP award presentation.
