The WNBA Finals are, by any measure, a matchup of the best two teams. No, literally, pick nearly any metric. Let me prove it.

During the regular season, the Minnesota Lynx had the best offensive rating, and the Los Angeles Sparks had the second best. The Lynx and the Sparks also had the best and second best defensive rating, respectively. Minnesota had the best assist-to-turnover ratio. The best field goal percentage? The Sparks first and the Lynx second. Minnesota had the second-best three-point percentage and number of assists. Los Angeles boasted the second-best steal rate. Most importantly, the Lynx’s 14.2 net rating trumped the entire league, while Los Angeles’ 10.2 was far and away the second best.

You can play this same exercise for the players: Four of the WNBA’s last five MVPs are on the Lynx and the Sparks. They are, by every definition, superteams.

This is, in part, how basketball works. We know the NBA has worked like this — in the 2000s, the Lakers and the Spurs won more than half of the championships; in the ‘90s, it was Jordan’s Bulls; in the ‘80s, the Los Angeles and Boston rivalry reached historic levels thanks to the two teams sharing eight of the decade’s 10 titles.

In college, UConn (and a few other select schools) has dominated women’s basketball, while there are a few men’s basketball powerhouses led by coaches who become synonymous with the programs themselves. Of course the WNBA works awfully similarly — the now-defunct Houston Comets won four straight in the late ‘90s, which preceded consecutive championships from the Sparks, and that was followed by three titles in six years for the Detroit Shock. (The Shock relocated to Tulsa and then Dallas, where they’re now the Wings.)

Basketball has fewer players and more scoring, which reduces variability. As such, the sport rewards dynasties, powerhouses, and superteams. It’s no surprise that the league’s two best teams are duking it out again in September.
