Chicago Sky's Elena Delle Donne Named 2015 WNBA MVP

Ayeeee! 2013 WNBA Rookie of the Year, Elena Delle Donne just became the first Chicago player to receive the MVP award. Under the guidance of Coach Pokey Chatman (fellow 15 Women to Watch 2015), she had the best debut for a Sky rookie in franchise history recording 22 points and her 2015 season has been nothing but buckets as she “finished the regular season averaging a league-best 23.4 points, and also has the WNBA’s top free-throw accuracy at 95 percent.”
