With all due respect to all the other great women’s basketball players such as Lisa Leslie, Cynthia Cooper, even Ann Donovan and The Blaze, Sheryl Swoopes was perhaps the best women’s player of all time. Her versatility, shooting ability, ball handling and suffocating defense rewarded her with the sometimes moniker of “The Female Michael Jordan.” Due to her prowess in the 2001 season, Swoopes was awarded the ESPY as the 2001 WNBA Player of the Year. This solid metal trophy measures 17” high, with a 4.25” square base. Near the base is a plaque which reads “THE ESPY SHERYL SWOOPES BEST WNBA PLAYER.” This trophy exhibits the usual general handling with various scratches and scuffs. This was the first of two ESPY’s Swoopes received for WNBA Player of the Year, but the first is always the most special. Very good condition. LOA
