Nate has been hard at work compiling his choices for post-season awards. In tonight's games you'll be able to see his selections for Sixth Woman of the Year (DeWanna Bonner, PHX), Most Improved Player (Kia Vaughn, NYL), and Most Valuable Player (Tamika Catchings, IND). Additionally, Penny Taylor (1st team), Sue Bird (1st team) and Cappie Pondexter (2nd team) were slated on his All-WNBA teams. Quite a nice cast of characters lacing them up this evening, I'd say, and plenty to discuss in this first night of playoff action - happy threading!
