Born in Syosset, New York
With early signs of athletic greatness for WNBA legend Sue Bird, a competitive spirit began to boil within the young star. Feeling that the competition was not at a high enough standard in her hometown of Syosset, New York, Sue enrolled herself in a Queens area high school to further her game. She was named the New York State Player of the Year and decided to commit to the University of Connecticut for college ball. Apart from the dominance that is the Women’s program at UCONN, Bird was a member of the 2000 and 2002 NCAA Division I Championship teams. Shattering records left and right, she was a three-time recipient of the National Point Guard of the Year Award. Ranking as the University’s all-time leader in 3-point and free throw percentage, she was selected first overall by the Seattle Storm in the 2002 WNBA Draft.
Sue Bird’s mark on the game of basketball is infinite. She’s one of only six players who have won an NCAA Championship, WNBA title and gold medal. Speaking of Olympic medals, she has not one, but four gold medals with Team USA. She’s one of the most decorated players in WNBA history, an eleven-time All-Star and she never came off the bench in her career. Having spent her entire career with Seattle, she helped her team win three Championships and is the league’s all-time leader in assists. Like many of her peers, Bird spent her off-seasons playing overseas where her championship mentality continued. She’s a five-time champion in both EuroLeague and Russian National League.
Bird’s star power is flying high right now, with her style being recognized on an international level. Always with an athletic flare, her style has graced various covers of fashion magazines and is a reflection of her strong personality and game. She’s a big fan of the layering look and her blazers and jackets are usually the highlights of her style. True to her ballers ways, keep a close eye on her shoe game, it’s likely on point.
