The Clippers are basically done with a 2.5-game deficit, so don't be surprised to see DJ get a game off once the Clippers are eliminated.DJ was a force down low with his 29.8 rebounding rate, and his five offensive boards were huge for Los Angeles.She was also a consensus pick as player of the year in Illinois in 2002, 2003, and 2004, and was a four-year member of the All-State first team.On December 27, 2001, Parker dunked for the first time in competition as a 15-year-old sophomore at Naperville Central High School, this is believed to be the first slam dunk by a female athlete in Illinois.No surprise here, as Williams was previously listed as doubtful and coach Doc Rivers wasn't expecting him to play. The Clippers have been mathematically eliminated from the postseason, so this was easy to see coming.At this point, we'd expect Williams to miss the season finale on Wednesday vs. He's perpetually injured, and has likely added his name to even more "never again" lists this season.In leading the Lady Vols to two consecutive national championships, Parker was named the Final Four's most outstanding player in both occasions, and was a two-time consensus national player of the year.Parker has won a WNBA championship (2016), two WNBA Most Valuable Player Awards (2008, 2013), WNBA Finals MVP Award (2016), WNBA All-Star Game MVP (2013), two Olympic gold medals (2008, 2012), and the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award (2008).
If me and my dad went to a park and he didn't think I was practicing hard enough, he'd just get in the car and leave. While in high school, Parker led her basketball team to Class AA state titles in 20, and compiled a school-record 2,768 points (22.9 points per game) and 1,592 rebounds (13.2 rebounds per game) while starting 119 of the 121 games in which she played.
Expect Jordan to get a night off in the final two games.
He got the Rudy Gobert treatment and Jordan's motor wasn't there this time around.
In high school, Parker won the 20 Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year awards, becoming just the second junior and the only female to receive the award twice.
A versatile player, Parker mainly plays the forward position; while in college, she was listed on Tennessee's roster as a forward, center, and guard.
