Check out the social media mentions the Mystics got last night!

Someone needs to give Emma Meesseman a VERIFIED BADGE on Twitter! Especially if LeBron James took notice of it!

The Washington Mystics are back in the WNBA Finals! They certainly received a lot of love on Twitter last night, so here are some of the tweets they received, locally and throughout the NBA.

Emma Meesseman is getting lots of love from the NBA

The Mystics named Elena Delle Donne the player of the game because she led the team in scoring with 25 points. I beg to differ. Emma Meesseman scored 13 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter, making 5-of-6 shots including three three pointers. Yes, EDD scored 9 of her own points, but Meesseman shot the daggers when they mattered.

Anyway, many NBA players took note of that. Some from the Wizards.

And two Lakers players took notice as well.

I know LeBron James is an Aces fan. Hell, he even sat courtside last night with Anthony Davis and Quinn Cook. Starting today, he’s quietly buying himself a Monumental Red jersey with No. 33 on the back!

Finally, if all that weren’t enough, check out Washington Post writer Ava Wallace’s tweet when head coach Mike Thibault hugs Emma. She reciprocated ... sorta?

Enjoy your Wednesdays everyone. Today is definitely a great day to be a Mystics fan!
