On Monday, Monique Currie announced that she will retire from the WNBA. She played 13 seasons in the WNBA, most of them for the Mystics from 2007-14 and once again in the 2018 season. Currie made the announcement on her Instagram account.

Though Currie’s playing career is over, a new chapter begins. She will move to Portland, Ore. this summer to work for Nike at its corporate headquarters. It is also Currie’s 36th birthday!

The Mystics gave their thank you’s as well.

Currie will forever be known as one of the Mystics’ all-time greats. She only made one All-Star Game appearance in 2010 when it was an All-Star vs. Team USA format before the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Championships that year. Currie was also a member of each of the Mystics’ best two teams. In 2010, the Mystics had their first 20-win regular season and finished first place in the Eastern Conference after a six-game win streak to close out the year. She was also on the 2018 team that made the WNBA Finals for the first time.

Thank you for representing D.C. well Mo!
