The Minnesota Lynx have had a special 2021 WNBA season and they have been rewarded for that success with a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The regular season ended on Sunday and four teams will receive a first-round bye including the Minnesota Lynx.

The Connecticut Sun, Las Vegas Aces, and Seattle Storm are the other three teams that won't have to worry about having their season end in the first round of the playoffs.

In addition to the first-round bye for all four of those teams, the Sun and Aces will get two rounds of byes and automatically advance to the Semi-Finals after having the two best records in the league.

Minnesota will look to win another WNBA title this year and would mark their first since 2017.

They will have to go through a loaded field to accomplish the ultimate goal considering how great Connecticut and Las Vegas are as well as the teams that didn't receive byes.

It is going to be fascinating to watch as this year's season was unpredictable and the expectation is the playoffs will be the same.
