The WNBA has officially tipped off its 25th anniversary season. A year ago, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was uncertainty over how the season would occur and if it would even finish. There were several notable players who opted out or suffered injuries.

On Friday, the league’s opening night was celebrated as players across both the NBA and WNBA expressed their excitement upon arriving to their games.

Before Sabrina Ionescu cashed in on a game-winning 3-pointer, fellow Barclays Center resident and Brooklyn Net Kevin Durant sent praises to the New York Liberty. Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton were among the several NBA players who supported their counterparts in the WNBA. The Phoenix Suns‘ stars wore the jerseys of Phoenix Mercury stars Diana Taurasi and Skylar Diggins-Smith. The WNBA’s iconic orange hoodie was also a popular fashion statement made by several players.
