In 2017, Maya Moore was named Sports Illustrated’s Performer of the Year after leading the Minnesota Lynx to their 4th WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) Championship. This was after winning back-to-back NCAA Women’s Basketball Championships with the University of Connecticut, a WNBA Finals MVP, two WNBA All-Star Game MVPs, two Olympic gold medals and the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award. She was called “the greatest winner in the history of women’s basketball (with the best yet to come),” also by Sports Illustrated. In 2019, she decided to put a pause on her basketball career to help an inmate wrongly convicted of a crime.
