Can do it all from that one side of the court? Shoot from anywhere, drive, cut, explosive first step, prolific passing ability, etc.

I'm sorry more people did not get to see Cheryl Miller play. I also never got to see Hortencia, from what I've heard, she might have gotten my vote if I'd seen her play.

I never go to see peak Coop, but peak LJ was the best I have ever seen. I would add Swoopes as a close second.

Cynthia Cooper -- and she was in her mid-30s at the time. Frightening to think how good she was at 25.

Hard decision until i saw the "Shoot from Anywhere" section. No one had range like SS22 In her prime. The things she did with the ball at the speed she had was unmatchable. Coop not far behind she was a guru on that end also.

Shoutout to Hortencia. Watched some old clips of her taking it to Team USA, double and triple along with disciplined help didn't stop her and she kept her teams within striking distance.

I saw this post and right away had my vote ready...THEN I read the whole thing and realized I had to think about "score from anywhere" so who was the most versatile of those players who was money...

That means to me, Lauren Jackson is the best.
Second to me would be Swoopes
Third would be...Lisa Leslie...

Taurasi and Coop...get some kudos but I had to vote for them.

I also never got to see Hortencia play and remember Miller only slightly, so I couldn't honestly vote for them.

Yay for the old school players Hortencia and Cheryl Miller. Lynette Woodward was also amazing but, like Hortencia, I never saw her play. Can't fault the votes for LJ or Swoopes. Cooper had the best four years of anybody in the WNBA.

Surprised Dee isn't running away with this, though as she's about to become the top scorer in WNBA history and we know she can make the right pass as well.

Cheryl will always have a special place in my heart. After dominating the National Championship game, she was exhuberant and photogenic. That was back in there was one women's game broadcast per season. Cheryl knew how to make that one game count.

Candace Parker has a tendency to coast during the regular season.But she's a top 5 offensive playoff performer IMO.Parker is also better at creating offense for her teammates than most of the players listed.

Playoffs:
20.5p/9.5r/3.2a/50%

I see that some of you named male players and not female players. When I made a similar response to a thread like this I was ridiculed for using male examples and not female ones. Confused

It's a Rebkellian attitude. Forget about it. I make a lot of off the wall responses when I am fairly interested in a topic, otherwise I'm all about the Sparks.

Poor Rock, abused and picked on by all and sundry Wink

btw: I voted DT also. The others are pretty awesome too but to me DT has just been other-worldly (in many ways!) throughout a very long career.

Had to go with LJ. She had a wicked outside touch, but get her the ball down low and few players (or combinations of players) were going to stop her. She just had that combination of fire (which she sometimes called "white line fever") and talent. I wonder what all she could have accomplished if she wasn't almost always playing hurt.

I remember one game...I think against CT, in Seattle. Our offensive plays were stymied and we were down in the last half of the fourth (if I recall correctly). Memorably in a timeout Lauren yelled at Sue something like, "Just get me the #@$# ball!" So Sue did, and LJ just started willing those shots in against double and triple teams. Good times.

Lots of good choices on this list, though. Cool
