A’ja Wilson Wins the 2022 WNBA MVP

The WNBA has named A’ja Wilson MVP for the second time in her illustrious career.

Wilson beat out MVP finalist Breanna Stewart for the illustrious regular-season award.

Wilson averaged 19.5 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 blocks per game on 50.1 percent shooting from the field and 37.3 percent from beyond the arc. Wilson led the Aces to a League-best 26-10 record, was named the Defensive Player of the Year last week, won the Commissioner’s Cup, was voted a WNBA All-Star captain, and earned two Player of the Month and four Player of the Week nods.

Wilson and the Aces are headed to the Finals for the first time in 2020 after dispatching the Seattle Storm in four games. The Aces await the winner of the Chicago Sky-Connecticut Sun semifinal series. The Sky and Sun play a series-deciding Game 5 on Thursday.
