Lindsay Whalen wore her heart on her sleeve every game and as a result, the Hutchinson, Minnesota native delivered her home state four WNBA championships, two Olympic gold medals, and one NCAA Final Four during her long and storied career. Whalen, a five-time WNBA All-Star and three-time All-WNBA First Team performer, attacked the basket to make spinning, hanging, off-balance shots look routine. When she was not finishing in the paint, or hitting shots from deep, Whalen was setting up her teammates for easy baskets. She retired third on the WNBA’s career assists leader board with 2,345. The five-time All-Star played 15 seasons in the WNBA, including nine with the Minnesota Lynx where she won four titles. At the University of Minnesota, Whalen was three-time First Team All-Big Ten and All-America, two-time Wade Trophy and Naismith Award finalist, and led the underdog Golden Gophers to the 2004 NCAA Final Four. In 2016, Whalen was named to the WNBA Top20@20 and in 2021 she made The W25, a list of the greatest players in league history.
