Congratulations to Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker for winning the WNBA's most valuable player award.
Parker beat out Minnesota's Maya Moore and Chicago's Elena Delle Donne in one of the closest votes in league history. Parker finished with 234 points, Moore had 218 and Delle Donne 189.
It's the closest the top two players have been in the voting since Sheryl Swoopes beat Lauren Jackson by two points in 2005.
The 27-year-old Parker averaged 17.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.8 assists in helping the Sparks finish second in the Western Conference. It's the second MVP award for Parker, who won it her rookie year. Parker also won the All-Star game MVP this past July.
