Sabrina Ionescu’s First Two Years WNBA The trip was very difficult. A nagging ankle injury shortened her season in 2020 and limited her effectiveness in 2021. Although there were flashes of greatness in her first two years, she didn’t take the next step and didn’t fully enter the ranks of elite basketball keepers. In 2022, she reminded people of how special she is.
On Thursday evening, the World Basketball Association (WNBA) announced that Ionescu has been named to the All-WNBA Second Team.
She’s the first Liberty player to be named All-WNBA since Epiphany Prince back in 2015. Join her on the team:

- 2022 Player of the Year and Best Defensive Player, Aja Wilson of Las Vegas ace
- Brianna Stewart from Seattle Storm
- Candice Parker of Chicago Sky
- Skylar Diggins Smith in Phoenix Mercury
- Kelsey Bloom of the Aces

“I am honored to be nominated to the All-WNBA Second Team alongside some of the best teams in the league. Our entry this year in good health has been a team-making factor, and I feel we have only scratched the surface in terms of what we can achieve together.” “As exciting as this award is, I’m even more excited about the future of the New York Liberty Organization.”
SABB deservedly deserved this award as it finished:

It is indeed one of the triple multiples ever leaders In the history of W, she joined all her peers in the WNBA CP and AT. Beautiful, beautiful, very good!
As Ionescu improved day by day, the defenses got into her more. After a dominant victory over Lynx in Junewe asked Ionescu about dealing with all the different coverages thrown at her, and this is what she told us:
Staff writers more in next one She helped explain why Sab received this award, writing:
“By the end of the regular season, she was averaging over 15 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game, something only Candice Parker had done previously. But then Ionescu made huge improvements to her game, shattering countless countless records, and she was a vital part of the effort to lure New York to the playoffs.”
Ionescu is healthy and on the rise. At the end of its off season an interviewShe stated that she is excited to develop her game further this off season and does not have to rehabilitate her ankle. Liberty believes they can break into the top four in the WNBA standings, and with Ionescu running things, they have a chance to do that and more.
