Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird are both back for 2022. That's reason to celebrate.

"One more year!" According to the GOAT, Sue Bird herself, it was this playoff chant—nay, demand, from Storm fans that boosted her into a 19th season with Seattle's WNBA team

As evidenced by a salary that makes the four-time champion look a lot more like the average Seattleite—and opens up some extra cash for the Storm to recruit other star players—she's jockeying for another big win. Want to boost her into that one, too? Gear up in some of our favorite Storm merch and go cheer on some of the best athletes in the game.

Nineteen seasons (21 if you count the two she sat out for injuries) with one of Seattle's best athletes of all time? We've earned the right to brag. But we'll keep it simple.

Custom jerseys make great gifts for sports fans—loose-fitting, moisture-wicking fabric also comes in handy on the sidelines—and if you're the sports fan in question, all the better. Add your nickname and a lucky number, or choose from the full roster of Storm players (Bird and Stewart are in good company).

Storming Buckets Black Hoodie, Simply Seattle Local

$25

The last time we saw a nice hoodie for $25, Seattle had two basketball teams—and while those lightning bolts over the Space Needle make this full-on Seattle Storm, graphic simplicity means optimists can plan to wear it to a Sonics game one day, too.

Free agent forward Breanna Stewart, who has also returned to the Storm for the 2022 season, inspires us on and off the court: She's the first WNBA player in over a decade to land a signature shoe deal. She advocates for abortion rights and racial equity.  She was among the first female athletes to speak out about sexual abuse she'd experienced earlier in life. In short: She does hard things.

Price Varies

Sneakerhead Sue Bird helped design a line of Kyrie shoes for Nike, complete with her signature and hashtag Keep Sue Fresh (we will certainly try). This pair's in near-Storm colors, and though most sizes are only available on the competitive resale market, those prices look relatively reasonable. For the time being. Let us know if they make you fly like a Bird.
