Lisa Leslie

Retiring from the WNBA in 2009, Lisa Leslie left a legacy of firsts. The 6-foot 5-inch powerhouse was the first woman in the league to dunk, the first team sport athlete to win four consecutive Olympic Gold Medals and the first WNBA player to earn three MVP awards. In 2001 and 2002, the L.A. Sparks' swift center led her team to back-to-back championships, solidifying her title as the most recognized figure in women's professional basketball. The former Wilhelmina model is a mother of two, a wife, author and, in August 2011, she became a co-owner of the L.A. Sparks. Having built a career as a regular sports commentator, she joined NBC as an analyst for the 2012 Summer Olympics. Leslie will also be featured as an honoree at this year’s BET Honors.
