Sabrina Ionescu and the New York Liberty are on a stunning trajectory

The New York Liberty have gone from one of the worst teams in WNBA history to the top of the standings. And it's not just about Sabrina Ionescu. The 2021 New York Liberty were supposed to improve, but maybe not this much and this quickly. In six games, the Liberty have more than doubled their win total from a year ago at 5-1, and look nothing like the team that posted the second-worst winning percentage in WNBA history eight months ago.
