Tamika Catchings: An all-star by any measure
By Lizzie Haldane
Tamika Catchings won her first WNBA title last year at the age of 33.
NBA All-Star weekend begins Friday and ends with the big game on Sunday. We're still 162 days away from the WNBA All-Star game set for July 27. Due to the timing of last summer's Olympics, there was no exhibition for the women, so we'll honor the league's MVP instead. Fever forward Tamika Catchings had a spectacular 2012 season, winning one of her three gold medals (2004, 2008, 2012) in London and then earning Finals MVP honors on her way to her first WNBA championship. Add an NCAA title while at Tennessee, a 2002 Rookie of the Year award and a 2011 WNBA MVP to the seven-time WNBA all-star's resume and you've got a seriously full trophy case.
