Chat With Lisa Leslie and Temeka Johnson
Leslie is the reigning WNBA Most Valuable Player after winning the award for the third time in 10 WNBA seasons. She has scored more points in the WNBA than any other woman and was selected as a member of the WNBA All-Decade Team. She has been an ambassador of the game as one of its most recognizeable and enduring images over the past decade. However this offseason, Leslie announced that she and her husband, Michael, will be welcoming a new addition to their family in 2007, thus forcing her to miss the upcoming WNBA season.
Guard Temeka Johnson will be entering her second season in Los Angeles. The 2005 WNBA Rookie of the Year joined the Sparks prior to last season after a trade that sent her from Washington. At only 5-3, she has defied the odds to become a WNBA star, but will have an even greater burden fall on her shoulders this season with Leslie out of the lineup.
Find out how both have been keeping busy since the end of the season in September and what they are looking forward to in the months to come.
