Parker was already one of the best women’s basketball players in the world while attending the University of Tennessee. The versatile forward led the Lady Vols to two NCAA Titles, and was selected first overall in the WNBA Draft by the Los Angeles Sparks in 2008. She has since added a WNBA Championship and two regular season MVP’s to her resume. Parker doesn’t just dominate on the hardwood, she has also made great strides as a guest analyst on NBA on TNT.
