The Most Badass Jewish Sports Figures of All Time

Sue Bird

Team(s): Seattle Storm
Sport: Basketball
Years Played: 2002-Present

Accolades: 7x WNBA All-Star, 2x WNBA Champion, All-WNBA First Team (2002-2005), WNBA All-Decade Team, 3x Olympic Gold Medalist, 2x NCCA National Champion

Badass Justification: She got game. You may laugh and snicker at women's basketball, but this seven time WNBA All-Star is no joke. She's done it at home and abroad, racking up numerous trophies and accolades along the way. By winning her first WNBA championship in 2004, Bird became one of just nine women to receive an Olympic Gold Medal, an NCAA Championship, and a WNBA Championship. She's reached the postseason in all but one season with the Seattle Storm, who picked her first overall in the 2002 Draft. What is it about Birds and basketball? And word is, Sue is single and ready to mingle. Best bring your A-game to this court.
