Catchings beats out Charles for WNBA MVP honors

Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings was named the WNBA MVP for the first time in her career, easiy outdistancing former UConn star and Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles.

Catchings, who averaged 15.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals, received 21 first-place votes from a media panel and her total of 292 points was well ahead of Charles' 209 points.

I am a fan of Tamika Catchings. But her 2011 WNBA MVP award was really a lifetime achievement award. Her ppg, rpg, apg, spg, and mpg were all very slightly lower than her career averages. Catchings has played better in 6 of her 9 previous years in the WNBA. Congratulations to Catchings. And congratulations to Tina Charles on her 2nd consecutive outstanding season.
