Sue Bird  

“If there is one thing that Sue Bird can depend on, both on and off the court, it is her ability to read a situation and make a connection.”
—Sportswriter Kelli Anderson

“Point guards like her don't come along very often.”
—Former Storm coach Linn Dunn

“You don’t get any better than she is.”
—Hall of Fame coach Leon Barmore

“Sue Bird is a natural in all different contexts—with fans, with kids, with media, on the court.”
—Storm VP Karen Bryant

“She grew up on the ‘mean streets’ of Syosset—the toughest thing she ever had to do was decide which sale to go to at the mall.”
—UConn coach Geno Auriemma

“She’s going to play in the WNBA, but there’s a part of her that would rather be out on Jones Beach with her friends.”
—Sue's father Herschel

“Sue doesn't realize how good she is. She could average 25 a night, but she’s in it to make others better.”
—Former Uconn teammate Diana Taurasi

“Her best basketball’s ahead of her.”
—WNBA exec Renee Brown
