Breanna Stewart took to social media to express her displeasure over an apparent lack of respect for the deciding game of this year’s WNBA Finals.

On Thursday, the Washington Mystics and Connecticut Sun met in Washington D.C. for Game 5 of the Finals. Despite the fact that it is last game of the WNBA season, and a winner-take-all game for the championship, the buzz surrounding the game did not match that of other sporting events that evening. That didn’t sit well with the Seattle Storm star, who made reference to the attention an NBA preseason game was receiving.

Stewart’s tweet garnered responses mentioning Game 5 of the ALDS between the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays as well as the “Thursday Night Football” game between the New England Patriots and New York Giants that were also taking place Thursday evening. It’s those types of comment that confirm the basis of Stewart’s frustration with the place of the WNBA in the American sports landscape.

The Washington Mystics beat the Connecticut Sun 89-78 to win their first championship.
