WNBA superstar A'ja Wilson rocked a Bill Laimbeer jersey pregame to celebrate his birthday

The stars of the WNBA love a good pregame outfit and perhaps no one does it quite like A’ja Wilson. 

From Sheryl Swoopes Houston Comet jerseys to repping Las Vegas Golden Knights jerseys, Wilson has made a splash in the fashion game.

On Thursday night, the former NCAA champion and 2020 league MVP pulled up to Michelob ULTRA Arena rocking a throwback Bill Laimbeer Detroit Pistons jersey from the 1980s.

There’s no coincidence here. The former Bad Boy Piston had coached Wilson from 2018 up until this current season when leadership replaced him with Becky Hammon as the team’s head coach. 

Laimbeer was back in attendance to celebrate his 65th birthday on Thursday as the Aces (-10.5) honored him with Bill Laimbeer Night.

A’ja understood the assignment.
