Liberty star Stewart named WNBA MVP

New York Liberty forward Breanna Stewart has been named the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) MVP for the second time. This recognition comes after a dominant season where Stewart led the team to a franchise-best 32-8 record. She previously won the MVP award in 2018 with the Seattle Storm, making her the second player in WNBA history to be named MVP with multiple teams. Stewart also set a single-season WNBA record with four 40-point games.

Jonathan Kolb, the Liberty General Manager, praised Stewart’s historic season with the team. He highlighted her constant resiliency, belief, selflessness, toughness, and professionalism, which contributed to the team’s success.

In the MVP voting, Alyssa Thomas from the Connecticut Sun finished second, while last year’s MVP, A’ja Wilson from the Las Vegas Aces, finished third.

Stewart, who joined the Liberty this season as a highly sought-after free agent, had an outstanding performance. She finished second in scoring, third in rebounding, and third in total blocks. Stewart achieved a career-best average of 23 points per game.
