The Phoenix Mercury, Arizona’s very own WNBA team, are currently on the hunt for a fourth WNBA title, which would tie the league record. The team’s current lineup includes all-stars like Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and DeWanna Bonner, all of which have racked up awards and recognitions for being some of the best in the league. In fact, the three hold the record for most points scored in a season by a trio of teammates in WNBA history, at 1,967 points in 2018.
If that’s not enough to convince you of the excitement that’s in store then their accolades surely will. Bonner was most recently named the Western Conference Player of the Week, her sixth career honor among others like two-time WNBA Champion, three-time Sixth Woman of the Year and two-time WNBA All-Star. Notable titles for Griner include Olympic gold medalist plus two-time WNBA Defensive Player of the Year and five-time WNBA All-Star. She also holds multiple WNBA regular season records for blocks and boasts more regular-season dunks than the rest of the league combined…in history. Taurasi’s accolades are just as impressive. She was named the 2009 WNBA MVP and is a four-time Olympic gold medalist, three-time WNBA Champion and nine-time WNBA All-Star. She’s also the all-time franchise leader for the Mercury in 16 categories and was named one of the 20 greatest WNBA players ever in 2016.
