They’re masters at this now.

For the second consecutive season, the Aces celebrated their WNBA championship with a victory parade in Las Vegas. And they did it in style.

Kelsey Plum started the parade route with a victory cigar.

Meanwhile, Finals MVP A’ja Wilson proudly carried the trophy.

Throughout the parade, Wilson showcased her determination while wearing the MVP voting tally that placed her third in a close race, with Breanna Stewart as the winner and Alyssa Thomas as the runner-up. She made sure to highlight the single fourth-place vote that grabbed everyone’s attention.

When the parade route came to an end, Wilson carried the trophy to the celebratory stage.

Franchise owner Mark Davis joined the team on stage to celebrate.

Davis gladly took the microphone to express his joy.

Head coach Becky Hammon also took the mic to praise A’ja Wilson with some colorful language.

“Listen here,” Hammon said. “I’m an experienced player. I’ve competed against all the greatest players. I’m gonna say it. A’ja Wilson is the greatest of the greatest…”

“I’m trying to think of an NBA comparison. I’m trying to think of a WNBA comparison. And there’s no one else in the world like A’ja Wilson.”

Wilson took the microphone to express her gratitude to the person who voted her fourth.

“One last thing, to whoever out there voted me fourth, thank you. Thank you so much,” Wilson said. “I want to express my appreciation. It just means I have a lot more work to do, and we’re coming back. We’re coming back, baby. We’re going to do this again.”

Plum ended her speech by reiterating Wilson’s commitment to return and continue their success.

“I don’t have much to say. All I know is that we’re going to keep coming back, and everyone hates it. Let’s go, baby.”
