The fortunes of the Minnesota Lynx have turned mightily since Katie Smith's heyday -- they have won two of the last three WNBA championships -- but she was the face of the franchise for its first seven seasons.  She appeared in five of her seven WNBA All Star Games while wearing a Lynx uniform.  She led the league in scoring in 2001 and was a two-time member of the All-WNBA First Team while with the Lynx.  After leaving Minnesota, she would add two WNBA championships, a Finals MVP award, and earn a place on the league's All-Decade Team.  Simply put, Katie Smith is one of the greatest players in WNBA history, and her finest statistical seasons were as a one-woman wrecking crew here in Minnesota.
