She was arguably just the 4th best player on her team this year. So obviously the criteria for this award is off the court stuff. For the folks who don’t keep up with off court stuff can someone list her non court accomplishments?
She was the LEADER of her team! WITHOUT her they do not win championship. You are supposedly a Lady Vol fan? Why so freaking bitter?

Seriously we need to find a way to remove all these non vols fans here. I'm tired of dealing with them. No matter how much Uconn pays me hell no, I would not create an account on their site. It's just like eating Fast Foods, it get me FAT

Geez I was asking what she did off the court this award obviously has more to do with off court stuff also. We don’t all watch tv or internet 24 hours a day. She must have done great things and just trying to get enlightened.

You are selling, I’m not buying. Way too much constant negativity from you regarding this team and coaching staff.

Parker was out for 7 games with an ankle issue and Chicago goes 0-7 Candace comes back healthy and they lost like around a total of 4-5 games THE REST OF THE SEASON
Period. This team (literally) did not get a ring until Candace got to Chicago. 4th best...gotta put the pipe down, baby.

I'm a CP fan my second favorite LV behind Holdsclaw my second favorite WNBA player behind Leslie but she won by default Biles didn't shine in the Olympics.Serena didn't get that Grand Slam to give her the all time lead.Paige didn't get UCONN to the mountain top even though she won every award.Candice went home helped a franchise who hadn't won anything get their first championship by being a LEADER not the best player and so she's your winner.

Can not believe you listed Paige B with any of those other women?!? Nellie Korda would have been a better option than Paige. Not close to the same stature.

She won all the individual honors as a freshman so I got to give her credit I can't be prejudice just because she's plays with them now I could have included Korda but what Paige did who saw that coming definitely not me

This is so dumb. Tell me how the post duo of Griner and Turner, that just shut down Wilson and Cambage were held in check again? Oh yeah, wasn’t the Sky’s 1-3. It’s Parker and her Bball intelligence and finesse. Looks like she’s kinda, oh a bit flashy, but not really into the game. BS! the woman know her *ish and performs. I mean Turner SHUT DOWN Wilson, and Parker shredded her. She just does so much I spite of her flash that people don’t recognize.​
also, would like to say: if you’re a woman’s Bball fan and you want the succes and growth of the sport for your own enjoyment as well as for the benefit of the ladies who have worked so hard, then maybe you should consider celebrating her win instead of being such a cynic. I’d celebrate Taurasi, Moore and Stewart if they won. Yet alone 2x because despite my hate of UConn, I love what they’ve done and what they’ve become. So please explain your issue.​

I am a huge W fan I watched them all and again she was their 4th best player and in finals maybe 5th.

PG1 can certainly have an opinion. I respect that.I don't agree with it.

let's look at the stats and the games. We already saw the Sky's record without her. Taurasi stated after the finals Parker does things no other player can do. Let's look at Copper the finals MVP and just how much credit she gives to Parker. Or listen to her coach how important she is.

If we are to discount leadership, experience, IQ etc and speak to talent alone... Parker's versatility is why she is so important to her team and one reason they went 0-7 without her. She is so good at so many things it allows the other players to be free. She's a great passer and makes smart decisions. Her teammates are very talented but her skills wreak havoc for opposing teams and adds another dimension her coach can use when she's the floor. . I can see if PG1 said in my opinion Copper was the best player during the play offs (this would be debatable)

In the last game against the mercury Parker put up 16 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and four steals, and made a number of big plays on the defensive end. In the playoffs she shot 49.9% -33.3% from the 3 - 89% from the FT line - 8.4 rebounds - 4.4 assist - 2.1 T/Os - 2.2 steals and 1 bock. Sure Quigly is an amazing 3 pt specialist and Vandersloot one of the best PGs and passers in the league. Cooper is a great young player. BUT Parker does EVERYTHING on the court as proven in her stats.

Her efficiency and versatility makes her a very special player. Her defense was stellar. She's a 6'4''player who can do just about anything as shown in the stats.

I know this isn't a Parker / DT thread but some time ago just for kicks I went to compare Taurasi's career stats and Parker's. If you look at them and considering Parker's size...They are quite comparable in my opinion. DT specifically played guard yet she's averaged 4 assists and 2 t/o- Parker 4 assists and 2.7 t/o......Parker's average slightly more steals and blocks. Say what you want about Parker but as Taurasi says she can do things no other players can and she helps take pressure off her teammates
