Early Career

Lisa Leslie was born in Gardena, California, on July 7, 1972. She used to play professional basketball. Leslie didn’t like it when people asked her if she played basketball when she was in the seventh grade and stood six feet tall. But once she started playing reluctantly in middle school, she couldn’t stop. At Los Angeles’s Morningside High School, she led the team to two state titles. At the University of Southern California, she set several records for points and rebounds in the Pac-10 conference.

Leslie was named the National Player of the Year in 1994, which was her last year at the University of Southern California. She went to the Olympics for the first time in 1996, when they were held in Atlanta, Georgia. There, she helped the U.S. women’s basketball team win the gold medal. Leslie also started her career as a model that same year.

WNBA Career

Leslie got a contract with the WNBA in 1997. She was one of the first players in the new league. She played for the Los Angeles Sparks for a long time and did a lot of great things. She was the first player in WNBA history to win MVP awards for the regular season, the All-Star Game, and the playoffs all in the same year (2001). Leslie also led the Los Angeles Sparks to back-to-back WNBA titles in 2001 and 2002. In addition to her great work with the Sparks, Leslie also competed in the Olympics three more times. In 2000 and 2004, she helped the U.S. team win gold.

Leslie won the WNBA MVP award twice more, in 2004 and 2006. She didn’t play in the WNBA in 2007 because she was expecting her first child, but she didn’t stay away for long. In 2008, Leslie went back to the Sparks.

She also won her last gold medal in women’s basketball at the Olympics in Beijing, China, that summer. In 2009, she told the basketball world that she was giving up her professional career. During her twelve years in the WNBA, Leslie scored more than 6,200 points. She was also the first woman in the league to make a slam dunk during a real game.

Leslie has worked as a sports commentator and analyst for ABC, NBC, Fox Sports Net, and other networks since she retired.

In 2011, Leslie went back to her favorite Sparks team, but this time she did not play. Instead, she invested in the team. She is now one of the team’s owners, and she has also set up the Lisa Leslie Basketball & Leadership Academy to teach others what she has learned.
