In the closest voting since 2005, Los Angeles forward/center Candace Parker edged Lynx forward Maya Moore to win the WNBA’s Most Valuable Player Award. Parker, who won the award for the second time in her six-year career, received 234 points from a national panel of 39 sportswriters and broadcasters. Moore had 218 points. Chicago rookie Elena Delle Donne was third with 189 points. It was the closest finish since Sheryl Swoopes beat out Lauren Jackson by two points in 2005.

Parker: Stats say she's surprisingly ineffective in leading her team to wins when she's on the floor, and besides the stats she's pouty, her own team doesn't seem to rally around her, unless she tells them to, and she's the only one of the MVP candidates that would vote for herself if she had the chance.

She won the award and her team proceeded to lose at home against an energized Phoenix Mercury. Individual awards are great but feel hollow if the team tanks.

The Lynx play as a team. Unlike Parker, no one on the Lynx feels the need to hog the ball or be a diva. Let Parker put up a shrine to herself, I think Moore will be much happier with the WNBA Championship title at the end of the year!
