Sue Bird is a basketball legend and an icon who transcends sports. A champion who’s won at every level, she’s also an inspiration to many for coming out publicly with her girlfriend, soccer star Megan Rapinoe, in 2017. On this episode of "The Tuff Juice Podcast," the Seattle Storm point guard and fellow UConn Huskies alum joins Caron Butler to discuss how her expectations of coming out compared to the reality of it, social distancing and how playing overseas in Russia prepared her for it, Kobe Bryant’s efforts for the women’s game, how the UConn women’s team has achieved sustained greatness, how the WNBA has changed since she entered the league in 2002, what keeps her going as the oldest player in the WNBA, and much more. Sue keeps it 100 throughout and you do not want to miss it!
