Nneka Ogwumike has quickly become one of the most skilled and versatile power forwards in the game. When she's not sprinting the length of the court on a fast break or crashing the boards for second-chance points, she's tormenting defenses from down low. Her creativity, patience and shooting accuracy have sharpened her post game into her team's leading offensive threat. Having shown such consistent improvement from her Rookie of the Year beginnings, and with the majority of her career in front of her, Ogwumike's potential as a superstar is as limitless as her ways to the rim.

Quiet, humble, unsung – words like these have been used again and again to describe Whalen through much of her professional career. And yet, as a five-time All Star with three league titles, her accomplishments are anything but. She's the first player in league history to score 5,000 points, dish out 2,000 assists and claim 1,500 rebounds, a testament to her steady hand as a distributor and accuracy as a shooter. Unlike most of the league's dynamos that rise quickly to the top and then decline with age, Whalen has accomplished the rare feat of increasing her numbers well into the later stages of her career.
