MVP

In 2001, Leslie continued to build on her pioneer status. After leading the Los Angeles Sparks to a 28-4 regular season record, they claimed their first WNBA Championship. Coming off of a milestone year, Leslie was also the first player in league history to capture all three MVP awards (regular season, postseason and All-Star) in the same season.
