Yolanda Griffith, Monarchs
Averages: 12.7 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 2.3 APG; PRA -- 22.2
Breakdown: The 36-year-old center still has game. Her 7.2 boards per game is more than half-a-rebound better than her 6.6 rpg average last season. At 24.7 minutes per game, Griffith is getting the least burn of her career. That's probably why she's seen a dip in her points production (13.8 in 2005; 12.7 in 2006). She is, however, averaging 2.3 dimes per game, which would easily surpass her career high of 1.7 set in 2001.
Kamila Vodichkova, Mercury
Averages: 12.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 1.6 APG; PRA -- 20.6
Breakdown: This seventh-year pro is having her best-ever season in 2006. After setting career-highs in points (10.9 ppg) and boards (7.0 rpg), Vodichkova has surpassed her top scoring average (12.0) and matched her best rebounding year (7.0). In Paul Westhead's system, expect her numbers to be big and stay big.
Ford has the best overall numbers of all East forwards.

Ebony Hoffman, Fever
Averages: 9.6 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 1.1 APG; PRA -- 18.6
Breakdown: Before this season, Hoffman had never surpassed averages of 3.9 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. This season has been a different story for the third-year pro. Hoffman is averaging career highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, minutes and mentions in Ballot Breakdowns.
Margo Dydek, Sun
Averages: 10.3 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 0.6 APG; PRA -- 16.6
Breakdown: The WNBA's all-time leader in blocks, leads the league in guess what again this season? You got it, blocks per game (2.3) and total blocks (14). Dydek also leads the league in field goal percentage (.619) which is .082 better than her career high of .537 last season and miles ahead of her career shooting percentage (.465). Also, for the first time in her career, she's averaging at least one steal (and in this case exactly 1.0 steal) per game.
