“Serena Williams and Simone Biles Must Be Accountants Then”: Megan Rapinoe Faces Unfair Ridicule for Suggesting Former WNBA Star Sue Bird Is the Greatest Athlete Ever

American soccer star Megan Rapinoe has stirred up quite the storm on Twitter by hailing former WNBA star Sue Bird for having the “best career in any sport ever”. Sports fans were up in arms at this statement, throwing a multitude of names of athletes with apparently better careers at Rapinoe. And when it comes to athletes with arguably the best careers ever, Serena Williams is always going to be a prominent name that crops up.

Seattle Storm, the WNBA team that Sue Bird played for, retired her number 10 jersey as a tribute to her amazingly long and decorated career. Bird’s fiancé and soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who was one half of the emcees with the other being Macklemore, made a statement that she probably did not expect to kick up such a storm.

What about Serena Williams?
Sue Bird has had quite the career, one certainly worthy of catapulting her up on the list of some of the best sporting careers of all time. And when she is your fiancé, you’re not going to have eyes for anyone else are you? Naturally, Rapinoe was not going to be really thinking about Serena Williams during such an emotional event that was celebrating her partner in life. However, rather than giving her a pass for the same, many took to Twitter to voice their indignation at her suggestion.“Congratulations on like, arguably the best career that anyone has ever had in the history of any sport ever.”

Many of these protestors had Williams on their list and they weren’t shying away from hammering that at Rapinoe.
