WNBA star Lindsay Whalen to retire

Sports world reacts to WNBA guard Lindsay Whalen's retirement announcement

Whalen also has appeared in 81 playoff games, with averages of 11.7 points, 4.1 assists, and 3.4 rebounds. With 322 victories and counting, no player in league history has won more games.

Whalen has won five WNBA championships - all with the Lynx - and will retire with the most wins of any player in WNBA history. She has highlight reels full of "how did she do that" shots that would make her a nightmare to face in a game of Horse.

Before being drafted into the WNBA, Whalen was a star player for Minnesota, where she led a program that had just one NCAA Tournament appearance before her arrival into a Final Four team.

"I would like to thank the WNBA, the Connecticut Sun, and the Minnesota Lynx for believing in me all of these years".

On Jan. 12, 2010, the Sun and Lynx executed a trade that sent Lindsay Whalen back home. She led the program to its first Final Four appearance. And they were playing for Cheryl Reeve, who took her first head coaching job after serving as an assistant for the Detroit Shock during their championship years.

The Lynx are 200-80 in the regular season since Whalen arrived, having only missed the playoffs once.

The Lynx have already qualified for a spot in this year's playoffs and have three more regular season games left on their schedule.

The gritty point guard announced her plans on Monday.

The Lynx court general began this season with an eye pointedly focused on transition. Those are two huge accomplishments that point to her ability to make her teammates better. And since then, Minnesota has made the WNBA Finals six times, winning four titles.

James, like most of his fellow National Basketball Association players, are among the most vocal supporters of the WNBA and their athletes.
