Aces A'ja Wilson, Kelsey Plum star in raucous WNBA title parade: 'This is just the beginning'

·3 min read

The Aces celebrated their WNBA championship on Tuesday in Las Vegas fashion.

The champs held their victory parade surrounded by revelers on the Las Vegas Strip. Where most cities opt for early starts for their title parades, Vegas got the Aces party around happy hour. It kept going as the sun went down.

Players danced in confetti atop a double-decker bus.

The view from on high was just fine as they passed the Bellagio fountain — and a swarm of fans on both sides.

Once the parade transitioned into a party, fans demanded to hear from two-time and 2022 league MVP A'ja Wilson.

Wilson was happy to oblige, with champagne in one hand and a championship trophy in the other.

Before she took the stage, fellow All-Stars Kelsey Plum and Finals MVP Chelsea Gray had their moments in the sun.

Plum — who announced to the world that she was "so faded" the night of the Aces' championship win over the Connecticut Sun — made the most of Tuesday's celebration.

After the sun went down, she vowed that there was more to come.

Rookie head coach Becky Hammon made the most of her WNBA coaching debut after eight seasons on Gregg Popovich's San Antonio Spurs bench. She soaked it all on Tuesday.

Owner Mark Davis — who also owns the Las Vegas Raiders — thanked "the greatest fans in professional sports."

While those are highlights from the official party, the festivities surely didn't end there.

Enjoy, Las Vegas.
