Candace Parker two-time WNBA MVP announces retirement

All-time women's basketball great Candace Parker announced her retirement on social media Sunday

"I promised I'd never cheat the game & that I'd leave it in a better place than I came into it," Parker posted to Instagram.

The competitor in me always wants 1 more, but it's time. My HEART & body knew, but I needed to give my mind time to accept it."

Parker, who had initially re-signed with the Aces on Feb. 7 to a one-year deal, said in her Instagram post Sunday that her foot "isn't cooperating."

McEntire, meanwhile, was just announced as the host of the 2024 ACM Awards, airing May 11 on Prime Video live from Frisco

She was also a two-time league MVP (2008, 2013), a 10-time All-WNBA selection, a seven-time WNBA All-Star

"Although the majority of her career was played in opposing uniforms, we were blessed to have her as part of our championship team a year ago,"

Parker made her impact on the league from the get-go, and she is still the first and only player to be named WNBA MVP as a rookie

Tamika Catchings, Swin Cash, Diana Taurasi and DeWanna Bonner are the only other WNBA players to amass 5,000 points, 2,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists.
