The Top 10 Sexiest WNBA Players of All Time
Yes, the WNBA has attractive females. (Stop laughing. It’s true.) Just to prove it we’ve rounded up 10 of the best looking ones for your misogynistic judgment and inappropriate catcalls in the comments section.
10. Swin Cash

Blessed with beautiful brown eyes and upwards of two low post moves, Swin Cash is the kind of former Big East third-team forward that both male WNBA fans dream about taking home to their confused parents.
Assuming you have an extensive cable package and undying love of lay-ups, you may know her as a crucial member of the Seattle Storm’s recent WNBA championship and key cog on the 2004 USA Women’s Olympic basketball team. Also, sources claim she’s uber popular in her hometown of Pittsburgh.
9. Becky Hammon

According to Wikipedia, Becky Hammon is a woman. In my opinion, she’s a pretty cute one, too. She’s also done a lot of basketball-type stuff that you can read about on her web site. (It’s pretty snazzy and filled with lots of Becky Hammon information.)
8. Sue Bird

Remember when the Houston Rockets flushed their draft pick down the toilet when they selected Yao Ming (ahead of Amar’e Stoudemire and Caron Butler) in the 2002 NBA Draft? Well, several months later the Seattle Storm chose to go another direction when they made future Hall of Famer Sue Bird the top selection in the WNBA’s collegiate selection process.
Since entering the league eight years ago, Bird has earned a reputation for clutch play, sharp shooting and the ability to look shockingly feminine in basketball shorts. She is widely regarded as one of the top players in WNBA history and the only three-time Nancy Lieberman Award winner the sport has ever seen. (I have no idea what this award means, but assume it involves former Vice President Joe Lieberman’s wife and/or daughter.)
7. Lisa Leslie

As the only athlete on the list to describe herself as a “WNBA Player and aspiring actress,” Lisa Leslie is a unique talent who can boast both a Sister Sister cameo and WNBA MVP on her résumé.
6. Candace Parker

Here are five fun facts about Candace Parker;
5. She has won a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award
4. Her brother, Anthony Parker, was one of my least favorite players on the Toronto Raptors.
3. She is the first woman to dunk a basketball in an NCAA Tournament game.
2. She is married to NBA player Shelden Williams and lists Ron Harper as her favorite player of all-time. (Presumably, she has a thing for mediocre basketball players.)
1. She was unable to open the 2009 season due to a mild case of pregnancy.
