Transition Game: 10-Year Veterans Through the Years

As the WNBA enters its tenth season, only seven players remain from the original season back in 1997. That is pretty amazing when you consider that 539 women have played in at least one game over that span. So what do we know about these remarkable women? Well, Sheryl Swoopes was one of two players to sign with the WNBA on October 23, 1996, Tina Thompson was the first player to be drafted in 1997 and Lisa Leslie was the first All-Star Game MVP back in 1999. Leslie is also the all-time leader in points and rebounds. They have combined 24 All-Star appearances and 14 WNBA title. Yet, they have grown up both on and off the court over the past decade. Click on each to play the transition game.

Leslie, Mabika, Swoopes and Thompson have spent their entire careers with one team. Dixon and Johnson will join only their second team this upcoming season and Palmer joins her sixth in ten years.
