The Detroit Shock has won its 3rd WNBA Championship in six years!
Even though the star of the 2003 and 2006 Championship Team, Swin Cash, was traded.
Even though a top-tier player, Cheryl Ford whacked her knee and sat on the bench.
Even though so many Shock players were involved in a brawl, they had to be penalized in rotation.
Even though none of the final round games was played on their home court.
Bill Laimbeer, one of the former "Bad Boys" of the Championship Detroit Pistons of the 1980s, led the Shock to a 76 - 60 win over the San Antonio Silver Stars in three games. Laimbeer has been the coach of the Shock for all three championships.

The home court of the NBA Detroit Pistons and the WNBA Detroit Shock, "The Palace", in on a street named "Championship Drive". When the Pistons won a championship, the street was re-named "One Championship Drive". When the Shock won its second championship, the street was re-named "Two Championship Drive". Well, it's time for another street name change: The home of the World Champion Detroit Shock of the Womens' National Basketball Association will have to be called "Three Champion Drive"; and it's all because of Bill and the GIRLS!!
