WNBA Podcast: Revisiting the Top 3 Projections in 2011

The Top 3 players in SLAM Magazine's Top 20 Player Projections in 2011 generated a lot of buzz and a considerable amount of fan banter along the way. How could the reigning MVP and WNBA champion place third overall for projections in 2011? How could a player who is just as proficient defensively as she is offensively finish second? And, how could a player who was bounced from the first round of last year's playoffs take the No. 1 spot on the list?

WNBA.com's Frank Della Femina and SLAM's Ben York consider those questions and more as they revisit the Top 3 in this week's installment of the WNBA.com podcast.
