Having fewer games this season and players opting out or being unavailable to play limited the milestones that we thought would happen this year, but plenty of players climbed the charts in various statistical categories. 11 players are in the top 50 in all 5 categories, but Tamika Catchings is the only player to be in the top 12 of all of them while Candace Parker is in the top 27 on each list. Highlighted players in each category played this year.
Diana Taurasi continued to be the career points leader by a large margin, but the reduction in games did prevent her from a legitimate shot at hitting the 9000 point mark this year. Candace Dupree is now all alone in 5th place and Seimone Augustus jumped into the top 10 and crossed 6000 points.
We have a new rebound leader as Sylvia Fowles was able to pass her longtime teammate Rebekkah Brunson this year and be the first player to reach 3400 rebounds. Candice Dupree reached 3000 boards and Nneka Ogwumike reached 2000.
Sue Bird being back meant that she could add to her lead at the top of the list. Courtney Vandersloot continued to race up the charts this year, joining the top 5.
The lack of games certainly slowed the pursuit of Margo Dydek’s block total this season, although there are plenty of active players lower on the list trying to climb the ranks.
Tamika Catchings can continue to rest easy about anybody approaching her career mark in this category, although the return of Sue Bird did give us a new player in the top 5. The closeness of players in the rest of the rankings means that players will be able to climb these charts easily with a full season next year.
