They act like two legends cannot coexist.

When it comes to the WNBA, it’s hard to determine the greatest of all time — the GOAT. But if there’s any debate in the modern era of the W, it comes down to Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi.

From teammates at UConn and Team USA to fierce competitors whenever the Seattle Storm and Phoenix Mercury faceoff, the Point God and the White Mamba are forever top two.

While the head-to-head battles have been entertaining, the DT vs. Bird matchup came to an end (for the regular season, at least) as Sue Bird visited the Phoenix Mercury and DT one last time as she continues her farewell tour into retirement.

To celebrate her litany of accolades & her friendship with one of the best, Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury gifted Sue Bird a custom Air Jordan 1 created by The Valley of the Sun’s own Vick Almighty and Gemifly.

The custom Air Jordan 1 features the Storm’s signature green and yellow color scheme, her championships & jersey number on the heel counters, and other details like her name instead of the signature Air Jordan wings logo.

Take a detailed look at Sue Bird’s custom Air Jordan 1 below.
