Tina Thompson makes her points
Tina Thompson is averaging 12.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season for Seattle.
On this day in 2010, Tina Thompson hit a 16-foot jumper for the Los Angeles Sparks to pass Lisa Leslie’s record of 6,263 points and become the WNBA's all-time leading scorer. "It's only points," Thompson said at the time. Three years later, Thompson, who is now with the Seattle Storm, is at 7,265 points and counting. Katie Smith of the Liberty is in second place on the list at 6,347 points. Leslie remains in third.
