In her 17-year WNBA career, Taurasi has won three WNBA Championships. She’s looking for a fourth in the Mercury’s Finals series against the Sky.
The 39-year-old also leads the league in career points, field goals made, and three-pointers made in both the regular season and the playoffs.
During Sunday’s trophy presentation, Taurasi was gifted a onesie for her newborn daughter, who arrived on Friday, a day prior to Game 1 of the WNBA Finals.
