The Chicago Sky recently captured their first WNBA title in franchise history with a 3-1 series win over the Phoenix Mercury and celebrated in style with a championship rally on Tuesday. During the rally, the Sky had a special guest in attendance for the festivities at Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago.
The Sky brought a door from Wintrust Arena -- where they play their home games and won the title -- which was reportedly broken by Mercury star Diana Taurasi following the Chicago's Game 4 win.
The Mercury blew a 14-point lead in Game 4 over the final minutes and Taurasi struggled throughout the game. The 39-year old scored 16 points on 4-of-16 shooting in the loss.
As a result of their frustrations, the Mercury declined to attend the WNBA Finals postgame press conference. Once they got into the locker room, Taurasi allegedly took out her anger on a door in the locker room.
Taurasi was asked about the door on Tuesday and said "There was a lot of doors in there."
The Sky clearly felt that they didn't need clarification as to whether or not Taurasi admitted to breaking the door. They took it as an opportunity to poke a little bit of fun at their recent opponent as they celebrated a huge moment in franchise history.
