Best duos in Chicago Sky history

Nothing’s more exciting on a WNBA court than when two teammates are in sync and together make magic happen. The WNBA as a league has been around for just over 25 years, but in that short amount of time, it has built a solid reputation for having the best basketball players in the world, who thrill fans with their skillful moves and elevate the excitement and drama of each game no different than their male counterparts in the NBA.

The most successful teams, however, don’t just revolve around one player. They find more success when they have players who can work together to bring victory to their team. Just as in the NBA, every team in the womens’ league throughout its brief but storied history has had a dynamic duo whose names, like Cooper and Swoopes, Fowles and Moore, and Ogwumike and Parker, have earned the right to be spoken in the same breath as Jordan and Pippen, Magic and James Worthy, Bird and McHale.

Who are they, these players whose tag-team dominance drive up the score and whose names are inextricably tied to their franchise? Stacker compiled a list of the best duos in Chicago Sky history using stats from Basketball Reference.
