After giving birth to her first baby, Los Angeles Sparks center Lisa Leslie returns with a championship on her mind. She is joined in the front court by the first overall pick in the 2008 WNBA draft, Candace Parker, and re-acquired forward DeLisha Milton-Jones, so the Sparks may just give Leslie what she's looking for.
On the awards front, Parker, Sylvia Fowles and Candice Wiggins are the preseason's leading contenders for Rookie of the Year, while the races for MVP, Coach of the Year and scoring champion are wide-open. Will the heavily loaded west have a clean sweep? Is the east ready to step up its play, with the addition of the Atlanta Dream?
