The MVP And Her Campaign Manager Have Fueled One Of The Best WNBA Teams Ever
Jenn Hatfield (FiveThirtyEight)

Quote:
Cloud would have to wait 10 more days, but Delle Donne was indeed named the 2019 WNBA Most Valuable Player — and it wasn’t close. Delle Donne secured 41 of 43 first-place votes from the panel of national media members after a season in which she averaged nearly 20 points per game and became the first WNBA player to shoot 50 percent from the field, 40 percent on 3-pointers and 90 percent at the free-throw line.1

But Cloud wasn’t satisfied: “How do you not unanimously name Elena Delle Donne, the first player ever in the WNBA to [shoot] 50-40-90, who shoots as efficient as she does, who upped her defense, who upped her rebounds. … She upgraded all facets of the box score.” Cloud blamed the two first-place votes that Delle Donne did not secure on “bias” and added, “People were laughing when I was campaigning, but I was just making sure everyone knew who the real MVP was.”
