Special edition: Tweets from last week... and then there were two

 

Twelve teams began the season with high expectations of the 2010 WNBA season. Just eight teams entered the post-season push for the prize. And now only two remain to fight for the trophy. 

When the Seattle Storm and Atlanta Dream took just two games apiece to win their conference and earn the right to play in the finals, many were watching. Not only the traditional WNBA fan, but also those from around the league that were eliminated from contention. During the finals-deciding games, many of those who are used to being on the court, rather than watching with the rest of us let us in on what they thought of the competition. Here is a side-by-side compilation of tweets from players during both games.

Seattle Storm win 91-88 vs. the Phoenix Mercury
