Minnesota Lynx’s Maya Moore has reportedly won the WNBA MVP award, according to The Associated Press.
Moore will receive the award Thursday night before the Lynx’s game against San Antonio, which is the first game of the Western Conference semifinals.
“It’s a great feeling to be recognized for all the hard work that I’ve put in,” said Moore when she was told in a phone interview she’d be winning the award. “I think of all the people who have helped me in my journey as a basketball player. They should be recognized with this award. It means so much to have the respect of the people who watch the game and love the game.”
“Maya is the Michael Jordan of this league.” Tulsa Shock coach Fred Williams said after Moore had 32 points, nine rebounds and five assists against his team in July.
