The Chicago Sky fought a hard battle to clinch the eighth and final spot for the postseason. The multi-billion franchise has definitely dipped when compared with its performance last year.

Wade, who has now strengthened his ties with Copper, shared the news on his Instagram story along with a catchy tagline, “CHI-KAH-GO!!!”

Why is Kahleah Copper a special deal for The Flash?

The 29-year-old brings a lot to the team. Copper is not just a scorer, but she also makes a mark on the other side of the court. In addition to this, it’s evident that Copper is the anchor of the team who can lead them to another title this season or in the near future. It’s safe to say it would have been silly to let go of such a talent.
