Players to Watch
This year's All-Star format eliminates the East Coast vs West Coast line and instead is allowing the top two vote-getters to serve as captains and select their teams. Here are the All-Stars you should keep an eye on from each team.
Team Delle Donne:
Sue Bird – Sue is a living legend. Recently she set the record for most games played in the WNBA with 500. She will make even more history this year by playing in her 11th All-Star game; the most games by any player in WNBA history.
A’ja Wilson – The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft is already making waves by being selected to her first All-Star Game. She is the only rookie to make this year’s roster.
Maya Moore – The reigning MVP from the last two WNBA All-Star games will back to reclaim her title. The 4X WNBA champion, 2X Olympic champion and recent Best WNBA Player ESPY winner will definitely be the one to watch on the court.
Chiney & Nneka Ogwumike – These dynamic sisters will play side by side on Team Parker. This will be Nneka’s 5th All-Star appearance; she has been selected to every WNBA All-Star Game played during her career. While Chiney is back to play in her 2nd All-Star game since her rookie season in 2014.
