Best Comet (2008)

Tina Thompson

Now in her 11th year in the WNBA, the six-foot-two Thompson was the first-ever player selected in the inaugural league draft. Back then, she was in the shadow of teammates Cynthia Copper and Sheryl Swoopes, but no longer. She's the undeniable leader of the team (and the only original member left). Thompson is also a league leader: A member of the All-Decade Team and Olympic gold medal winner, she's missed only one WNBA All-Star game (she was busy giving birth to her son Dyllan). She's in the top five in the league in all-time points (No.2), rebounds (No. 4), three point shots (No. 2) and minutes played (No. 2).
