The stars were shining bright as the Phoenix Mercury came into Brooklyn for a Friday night showdown against the New York Liberty.

Queens native and Tennis Icon Naomi Osaka was in the building to cheer on her new bff, Sabrina Ionescu, and take in her first WNBA game, but Skylar Diggins and Diana Taurasi had plans of their own.

Sitting baseline for the first time during this pandemic, I had the best view at Barclays to witness the Mercury snatch their 6th-straight win.
