Sue Bird previewed the 2018 WNBA finals talking about her broken nose.

Now with the championship under her belt, she’s talking about another body part – boobs. The three-time champion called out NBA Live creators EA for an animation of her that featured boobs bouncing around under her Seattle Storm jersey.


Bird used The Players’ Tribune’s Twitter account where her preview “So I Broke My F*cking Nose (and 16 Other Things That I Want You to Know Before the WNBA Finals)” was published to point out that the “B” in WNBA stood for basketball.

Jessica Robertson, the head of content for the Player’s Tribune, clarified that Bird was talking about the boob animation.

Bird followed that up shortly after with a tweet from her personal account.


Bird and the Seattle Storm swept the Washington Mystics in the finals, capping it off with a 98-82 win on Wednesday.
