The WNBA is in the process of handing out their regular season hardware, and after averaging 17.9 points and 8.7 rebounds a night, Candace Parker of the L.A. Sparks has been named the league's MVP.  

Currently in the middle of the playoffs, Parker spoke about being humbled, and how much has changed for her, and the league, since she was a rookie.  She actually won the MVP in her rookie season, and had not won it again until now.  

 

“The WNBA announced Thursday that Sparks forward/center Candace Parker won her second most-valuable-player award. Parker, who averaged 17.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.8 assists this season, also won the award her rookie year in 2008.

‘I was shocked when I got your phone call yesterday,’ Parker said. ‘I was so focussed and into playoff mode that, you know, I really am humbled and wasn’t expecting this because of the great competition and how much the WNBA has grown since I’ve been on this stage five years ago.
