1. Maya Moore, Minnesota Lynx
Moore’s biggest problem the past two seasons was her slow starts to the year, which have cost her in the MVP race. This season, the feisty wing has set the tone early for the Lynx. She's been virtually unstoppable on the offensive end, averaging a league-best 27.6 per, and getting it done on the other end with 2.4 steals per. Last week in Tulsa, Moore shot the lights out—dropping 38 against the Shock. The former UConn Huskie kept the ball rolling upon her return to Minnesota giving the Liberty 30 points on 5-8 shooting from downtown.
