WNBA President Lisa Borders statement on Lynx’s Lindsay Whalen

NEW YORK – WNBA President Lisa Borders released the following statement on Minnesota Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen’s retirement:

“Lindsay Whalen will always be remembered as one of the greatest players and winners in the history of our league. Her impact was immediate, leading the Connecticut Sun to the Finals in each of her first two seasons before going on to become a four-time champion with the Minnesota Lynx. A five-time All-Star and two-time gold medal winner, Lindsay will finish her remarkable career with the most regular-season wins in league history.   I wish Lindsay continued and compelling success as she continues to inspire the next generation of female athletes at the University of Minnesota.”
