The WNBA is a young league, but it is by no means limited in its scope of icons. In fact, it is frustratingly difficult to put together a list of the greatest to ever do it because there are so many caveats.
For instance, Cheryl Miller could have gone down as the greatest woman player of all time, but she never had a chance to play professionally—she retired at 24 due to devastating knee injuries that would have been navigable today. There is also the matter of accounting for an ever-evolving league: play in 2020 is much different than it was in 2000, as all-around athleticism and skill are at an all-time high in a league that hoards talent.
This list, though, pays tribute to trailblazing legends, some of whom haven’t even retired yet. Greatness is changing, but we must always pay respect to our WNBA icons. In no particular order, these are the ten greatest players in WNBA history.
