The Wizards are in London, United Kingdom to get settled before their game against the New York Knicks tomorrow afternoon, or evening for our chaps and chapesses in the UK. But the WNBA was also involved.
Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne and guard Natasha Cloud joined fellow guard and Wizards assistant coach Kristi Toliver for the trip across the pond. Here’s a picture of the three at Kensington Palace:

And finally, here’s an iconic shot that pays homage to The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album cover. You can see Delle Donne with Wizards guard Bradley Beal, Wizards legend Georghe Muresan, and G-Wiz walking in a single file line.

Basketball is the most global game in the world outside of soccer. It is also a very good thing to see that the Mystics also participates in activities around the NBA London Game.
