The Minnesota Lynx held their 2017 Media Day on Monday afternoon at The Courts at Mayo Clinic Square in Minneapolis.

The players and coaches took pictures, met with the media and interacted with fans on social media throughout the day.

“It’s been going great. I’ve made the rounds and talked to a lot of people and a lot of familiar faces, which is very fun,” Lindsay Whalen said. “That’s the part of our start and the start of our journey is media day. You see a lot of faces from not only within our organization but in our community and it’s definitely really fun.”

The day also consisted of players joking around with each other, including Renee Montgomery giving Lynx fans a tour on Periscope, coaches showing off championship rings from past seasons, and players giving updates on how they expect to bounce back this season to try and compete for yet another championship.

“I think it speaks to what special of a group we have,” Maya Moore said. “I’m already feeling it in training camp that we have the energy, we have the bounce that we are going to do our best to fight. . . We are prepared for anything that is thrown at us and are willing to do what it takes to make the most of what we are given.”
