Breanna Stewart, New York Liberty

One of the primary candidates for the title of, "Best player in the WNBA," Breanna Stewart offers a bit of everything on the court. The epitome of a champion, Stewart makes winning plays, produces all-time statistics, and has the collegiate and professional accolades to rival anyone in history.

As decorated as anyone in basketball, Stewart is the face of one of the marquee franchises in the WNBA—and should be known and revered in all sports circles.

Prior to being drafted, Stewart produced a collegiate career that rivals the all but incomparable Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton. She won four consecutive National Championships, earning the NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player award in each of those runs.

Stewart was also a three-time Naismith National College Player of the Year, a two-time Wooden Award winner, and a three-time AAC Player of the Year.

In the WNBA, she's continued her dominance with two WNBA championships, two Finals MVP awards, and two regular season MVP honors. She won Rookie of the Year in 2016, the scoring title in 2022, and has earned five All-Defense nods.

Throw in two wins of the Commissioner's Cup and a Commissioner's Cup MVP award, and it's impossible to describe Stewart with any word below the threshold of all-time greatness.
