Best Lynx Player

Maya Moore

The star of the Minnesota Lynx can let her stats do the talking: Four-time All-American at Connecticut. Two-time NCAA champion. Four-time WNBA All-Star. Three-time WNBA champion. League MVP in 2014, and Rookie of the Year in 2011. She’s also the proud owner of two Olympic gold medals. She’s only 27, and coach Cheryl Reeve says Moore’s still getting better. “I’ve seen things this year that I didn’t see last year,” Reeve told City Pages. One of those, strangely, was losing: Moore missed out on a fourth championship in a close, controversial WNBA Finals to the Los Angeles Sparks. If the Lynx get back to their winning ways, there’s a good chance that five years from now we’ll be talking about her as Minnesota’s greatest pro athlete. Ever.
