Chicago Sky invite door that Diana Taurasi broke to WNBA Finals celebration parade
The Phoenix Mercury lost the WNBA Finals to the Chicago Sky on Sunday that resulted in the ‘G.O.A.T’ reportedly smashing a door in the locker room at Wintrust Arena.
The Sky held their championship parade on Tuesday, celebrating the 3-1 series win over Phoenix, and had some fun at the Mercury’s expense by welcoming a special guest to the stage — Taurasi’s least-favorite door.

Taurasi spoke to the media on Monday for the first time since the series-clinching Game 4 loss on Sunday and was asked about the door.
“There were a lot of doors in there,” the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer said briefly through her mask.
This was presumably Taurasi’s first run-in with a door as she was previously 3-0 in her appearances for the championship, including a 2014 win over the Sky.
Although the door took some punishment from the Mercury star, Taurasi was not the only one that took the game hard.
Phoenix players as a whole waited until a day after the contest to speak to media.
