This was quite a no brainer, wasn’t it? I mean, most people don’t give two shits about the WNBA. And before last year, probably would have trouble naming a player. They might know Lisa Leslie, though because she has been tip-toeing that mainstream line for a while. But no one has transcended the WNBA bubble like Candace Parker. She’s pretty close to a household name, and probably the closest any female basketball player has been, to date.
So, to no one’s surprise, CP3 has the league’s best selling jersey. And second place, Diana Tourasi’s second place finish? To be fair, it’s probably not even close. Let’s be real. Lisa Leslie, getting ready to play her final season, is the #3 selling jersey. And, on top of that, their team, the LA Sparks, has the best selling merch.
I’m dying for any morsel of CP3 news I can get my hands on. I can’t wait to hear what she named her new baby daughter, and I can’t wait to see her get back on the court again. I watched quite a few WNBA games last season; and it was all because of Candace. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone!
