The name Sheryl Swoopes is synonymous with women's basketball. Over the course of her career, Swoopes has achieved virtually every honor possible for a player, winning a National Championship at Texas Tech, four WNBA championships with the Houston Comets and gold medals in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Olympics. Allocated to the Comets as the WNBA's first player, Swoopes missed the first half of the 1997 season while giving birth to son Jordan but returned in time to help lead the team to the WNBA's first championship - and the next three. In 2000, she won the first of three WNBA MVP awards, the most won by any player. Swoopes recorded the first regular-season and playoff triple-doubles in league history and is one of five players to score 4,000 points in their WNBA careers. After spending the first 12 years of her career in Houston, Swoopes signed with the Storm as a free agent on March 3, 2008.
