The eyes of the women’s basketball world were on the Climate Pledge Arena as Sue Bird played her final home game of the regular season for the Seattle Storm.

The Storm came out on top against the Las Vegas Aces, falling 89-81 on Sunday. Bird finished with nine points, six assists, four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes on the floor.

But that did little to dampen the mood. From start to finish, Seattle fans made sure to give the 41-year-old a send-off befitting her legendary status:

At least so far, Bird’s final season probably doesn’t have the storybook ending he would have hoped for. The Storm are now in fourth place in the WNBA at 20-13, and Sunday’s loss was another example of how tough the road to a fourth title will be.

But Bird has already cemented her legacy as the best point guard in WNBA history.
