  1. Tina Charles is 5w&1l head to head against Maya Moore & Elena Delle Don so Tina is the MVP and Kia Stokes is the ROY&DPOY

  2. Rose Carrillo says:

    BG SCHOOLED KS. BG DPOY. CP3 >EDD or TC.

    • CALIPHZAINAB says:

      BG schooled KS in a loss your kidding me eprince scored over in the paint and BG can’t guard 1-5 like KS who has to be the DPOY

      • Rose Carrillo says:

        BG 103 blocks KS 66… not even close.

        • CALIPHZAINAB says:

          Blocking the most shots doesn’t make BG the best defensive player it’s deflections-steals-taking charges-pick and roll defense KS is the superior defensive player ex:EDD shooting% was the worst against NYL she hurt her ankle against PHXM 1ST HALF and returns 2nd half to get 30+ against BG

          • mightymouse58 says:

            Usually superior defensive players are starters on their own team especially DPOY. KS gs 6. TC>KS.

          • La Rose says:

            Most superior defensive players are starters on their own team especially DPOY. KS gs 6. TC >KS. Ask any coach in WNBA who keeps them up at nite, who do they fear defensively anytime she is on the court again not even close…BG.

          • CALIPHZAINAB says:

            KS plays starters minutes and without her NYL wouldn’t be the best defensive team in WNBA 2015 no question she should be the ROY&DPOY

  3. La Rose says:

    KS is talented but players who come off the bench contend for SMOY possibly ROY never DPOY…smh.
