Ten years of Candace Parker. Ten years of the Pat Summitt prodigy dominating the most competitive professional basketball league in the world. Ten years of decoration, including two Olympic gold medals (2008, 2012), two WNBA MVP titles (2008, 2013), four WNBA All-Star appearances (2011, 2013, 2014, 2017), five All-WNBA First Team roster spots (2008, 2012-14, 2017) and a WNBA Finals MVP with a World Championship to match (2016). Ten years of the most versatile 6’4 player: the WNBA’s favorite point-forward.
A decade in, Parker’s momentum hasn’t slowed and it’s not farfetched that in one of the WNBA’s most competitive years, she can keep doing Candace Parker things and ultimately lead her Los Angeles team to championship contention. Last night was a reflection of the CP3 we all know and love; her performance showed us she has no intention of regression.
