San Antonio Silver Stars guard Shannon Johnson has been a steady floor general throughout her seven-year WNBA career. The beginning of her second season in San Antonio has been no different.

While failing to win a game in the early going, the Silver Stars have split their last four games, including a win and a loss last week. In those two games, Johnson averaged 8.0 ppg and 8.0 apg. After 71-62 win over the Mystics last Tuesday and a 78-69 loss to the hottest team in the league, the Connecticut Sun, on Saturday, Johnson is averaging 5.6 assists per game.

The four-time WNBA All-Star ('99, '00, '02 and '03) was a gold medal last year with the U.S. Olympic team in Athens. She remains one of the fre remaining rare breed of point guards who actually still averages as many assists per game as points. Further proof of just how important she is to her team is the fact that she rarely takes a break and ranks fifth in the WNBA in minutes played.

Johnson currently ranks third in the WNBA with 5.6 assists per game, which is just shy of her career-best
(5.8 with the Connecticut Sun in 2003) while her 50 total assists are good for second best, just behind Temeka Johnson.
