The Best WNBA Images of 2007

Another Snap Judgment Photo of the Year contest is in the books, and we have a worthy champion in photographer Allen Einstein (right) for his amazing image of Detroit Shock All-Star Deanna Nolan blocking a shot by the New York Liberty's Cathrine Kraayeveld.

Einstein's photo dusted D. Clarke Evans' shot of Becky Hammon in the contest finals 58.5% to 41.5% as a new record 26,093 votes were cast in the final round alone. In total, nearly 85,000 votes were logged in the six-week-long tournament.

Listen to today's episode of the Shockcast, where Einstein describes both the photo and his victory. And a print of Einstein's photo of the year can also be purchased online -- heck, you can even get it framed -- by clicking here.

Thanks for voting and be sure to tune back in next year!
