Elena Delle Donne has taken the WNBA and particularly Chicago by storm.
She's likely to win the WNBA, rookie of the year award unless Brittney Griner starts playing like the all-star she was named several weeks ago.
Yes, Delle Donne is averaging a team best 18 plus points per game, but is she even the best player on her own team.
Watched in amazement the other day as Sylvia Fowles scored 32 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in a game in which Delle Donne did not play.
Fowles is the leading rebounder in the WNBA, averaging 11.4 boards per game.
Add to that 15.7 points per game and I think you have a pretty lively debate over who the MVP of the Chicago Sky is.
Fowles is one of those players who doesn't always get the credit she deserves. She's been on All-Star teams and she's even averaged 20 points per game.
Keep an eye on this young lady down the stretch. If Chicago is to earn a trip to the WNBA finals, you can bet Fowles is going to be right in the mix, dumping bodies to the floor, and recording a double-double, night after night after night after night after night.
