As the WNBA celebrates the fifth anniversary of the WNBA All-Star Game (Saturday, July 12, 4 ET, ABC), WNBA.com will celebrate the five women who have played in all four WNBA All-Star Games.

In our third installment, we look at Connecticut Sun All-Star guard/forward Nykesha Sales. While Sales has never started an All-Star Game (she is the only four-time All-Star who hasn't started), she has scored at least five points in every game. This season, Sales was named as a reserve to her fifth game, joining Tina Thompson, Teresa Weatherspoon and Lisa Leslie as players who will have played in all five WNBA All-Star Games.

See what Sales had to say before and after her experiences in the WNBA's midsummer classic.

Next installment: Sacramento Monarchs guard Ticha Penicheiro

WNBA All-Star 1999: New York City
What she said before the All-Star Game:
"I think it's going to be a lot of fun. There is a lot of history in Madison Square Garden and we're beginning our history for the WNBA here also, so there's not a better place. The fans here are great. As you can see we're all here, the fans are here, the kids are all around, the hotel is loaded with people wanting autographs and there is just a lot going on out there."

What she said after the All-Star Game:
"It opened a lot of eyes today. It was on ESPN, a lot of people were watching and there were even a lot of famous people out there -- actors, actresses, singers and they were all into the game, talking to us and real excited about watching us play."

Nykesha's stats: 6 points, 1 assist in 17 minutes

WNBA All-Star 2000: Phoenix
How does it feel to be playing here in Phoenix?
"It feels good. It's an opportunity for me to play on an away floor. I think our record away last year was pretty good. I think it's good that I have the chance to play on the road against a different crowd."

Comparing last year's game to this year, you have three Miracle players. Is it business as usual?
"It's great to have players on your team who you're familiar playing with. When you get out there, it looks like everything is flowing. When you're out there with other people you have to learn to adjust. You learn plays today and tomorrow; you gotta go out there and kick it. But being All-Stars, you just adjust quickly."

Nykesha's stats: 5 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals in 13 minutes

WNBA All-Star 2001: Orlando
How is this All-Star Game different from the other two?
"The only difference is I'm not as nervous, the first one I didn't know what to expect. The second one I got to get a feel for it and now I am a lot more comfortable. I am here at home and know what to expect."

What was it like playing in front of the hometown fans?
"It was fun. It made me a lot more comfortable than I had been in the past, maturing a little bit and understanding what the experience is like and then having it right here at home where it's familiar territory, I'm used to the arena."

Nykesha's stats: 10 points, 1 rebound in 10 minutes

WNBA All-Star 2002: Washington
What she said before the All-Star Game:
"I think it is different every year. There are new arenas and new players every year. You have to learn how to work with new players in two to three days. For the most part, all of us are here to have fun and make it the best experience we can."

What she said after the All-Star Game:
"I thought it was the best All-Star Game ever. I've had the opportunity to play in four. I think this was the closest, it was the most exciting, the fans were great and everyone was playing hard. The East just fell short by a few points."

Nykesha's stats: 9 points, 1 rebound, 2 steals in 14 minutes
