After having a season for the ages, Chicago Sky superstar Elena Delle Donne has just been named the MVP for the 2015 WNBA season, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-5 do-it-all Delle Donne has literally done it all for her team this season, as she's put up some historic numbers. While leading the league in scoring at 23.4 points per game, she also averaged 8.4 rebounds and shot an astounding 95% from the free throw line. Let's put that stat in context: in her three years in the WNBA, Delle Donne has only missed 29 free throws in her whole career!

That's just a staggering statistic, but all that not surprising, as she's a phenomenal talent -- and truly deserving of this year's MVP Award.

Delle Donne finished with 385 points, while Maya Moore was in second place with 246 points -- she was the only other player to get a first-place vote. Tina Charles, Brittney Griner and Candace Parker finished third through fifth, respectfully.
