Maya Moore teased on Twitter that she and her husband Jonathan Irons would appear on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning America to give an update on their new life together.
1 year ago my husband’s wrongful conviction was finally overturned. Even though his release was delayed by the Missouri AG we still take time to celebrate the ruling that began his freedom🙏🏽🙌🏽 Tune in to @GMA tomorrow 7am-9am to catch an update with us! https://t.co/mtpoPg8wMn

Immediately, the ears of WNBA Twitter perked up in anticipation of the interview. How have Moore and Irons been doing since her efforts in freeing Irons and having his 50-year prison sentence overturned?
Would Moore announce a return to the WNBA?
On the “will she or won’t she” question, she says she will once again sit out the 2021 season as she is still getting adjusted to her new life.
Robin Roberts asks Maya Moore if she’ll return to the #WNBA. She says that she’s been thinking about it, but she still needs some more time to rest.
Roberts announces that Maya and Jonathan’s story is going to be an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary that is premiering this week. 👀

Anyone notice the other bit of news? The story of Moore and Irons is getting the 30 for 30 treatment from ESPN and the documentary is slated to drop this week.
Uh….time and place, ESPN so we can cancel what other plans we may have had? Time. And. Place.
Here’s the clip from GMA, by the way.https://t.co/J0tngjcUcO

Moore has not played in the WNBA since the 2018 season – the year the Minnesota Lynx hosted the All-Star Game. She has devoted her time to the Irons case as well as other life pursuits.
At the time of her departure from the W, she had already established one of the most illustrious resumes in WNBA history – including her four championships she won with the Lynx.
