Anyway, Candace proved that she is a force in women’s basketball. First, in April, she leads her team to a 2nd consecutive NCAA Championship. Then she’s selected as the lottery pick in the WNBA draft, which takes her to the LA Sparks. She starts settings records. Then she is selected to the 2008 Olympic Team and got a gold medal out of that excursion.
Are y’all keepin up with me?
She gets back and picks up right where she left off, which earned her the WNBA Rookie of the Year and MVP awards for the 2008 season. This is the first tim ever that a rookie has been named the league’s MVP. It’s a big friggin’ deal, people. The only thing she didn’t get in the 2008 calendar year is a WNBA Championship. The San Antonio Silver Stars eliminated the Sparks from the playoffs. Oh, and Candace has the best selling WNBA jersey.
*whew* Time for a well-deserved vaca, Candace. You’ve had a helluva year, mama!
S/O: The LA Sparks are promoting something called “Candace’s Corner”, which looks like a fan club for her. For your $599 contribution, you get a seat in Section 113 — which is designated Candace’s Corner — for every Sparks home game. You’ll get a special Meet and Greet session with Candace, a t-shirt, a picture with Candace on the STAPLES Center floor, and more. Sounds cool. I might be all about that if I were in the L.A. area. Actually, no I wouldn’t. My uncle is on the Lakers coaching staff. I’d make him hook a sista up. Not gonna lie.
IF YOU HAVEN’T JOINED THE CANDACE PARKER FANLISTING, GET TO IT!
