Minnesota Lynx TicketsThe Minnesota Lynx competes in the Western Conference of the Women's National Basketball Association. The concept for the team was born when the WNBA announced on April 22, 1998, that two expansion teams would be added to the league. One of these two teams became officially known as the Minnesota Lynx on December 5 of the same year. The team has experienced more than its share of success in the league and is the winner of four WNBA Championships. The first of the Lynx championships came in 2011. The team next became world champions in 2013. The third and fourth championships for the Minnesota Lynx were won in 2015 and 2017 respectively. The Lynx is tied with the Houston Comets for most WNBA Championships. The Minnesota Lynx is owned by Glen Taylor, who is also one of the owners of another Minnesota team, the Timberwolves. You can purchase tickets to see the Minnesota Lynx at StubHub.

Who are some noteworthy Minnesota Lynx players?Odyssey Sims averaged 14.5 points and 5.4 assists per contest in 2019. Sims was a major contributor for the Lynx after coming over from the rival Los Angeles Sparks. Sims reminded many people of the player she was at the beginning of her career with the way she performed for the Lynx. She earned a starting spot with the Lynx and played nearly 32 minutes a game. Sylvia Fowles plays the center position in the traditional manner. On offense, her back is to the basket and she plays with an emphasis on defense and shot-blocking. These classic center traits combined with the touch of modern basketball in her game have many fans of the WNBA asking if she is the most dominant center in the league. Nobody spent more time on the floor for the Minnesota Lynx than Naphessa Collier. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 13.1 points and 6.6 rebounds while playing more than 33 minutes a contest in 2019.
Who is the coach of the Minnesota Lynx?The 2019 season was the 10th for Cheryl Reeve as head coach of the Minnesota Lynx. It was also the second year for Reeve in the dual role of general manager. The 231 wins Reeve has in 340 games are the most victories in history for a Lynx head coach. Reeve's team went 27-7 in 2017 and won the fourth championship in the history of the franchise.
What Minnesota Lynx players have been honored?The legendary status Lindsay Whalen has attained in Minnesota has been well-chronicled. Whalen is a native of the Gopher State and spent nine years playing for the Lynx. The team won four WNBA Championships while Whalen was with the team. Whalen was drafted first overall in 2004 after a stellar career at the University of Minnesota and is now the winningest player in WNBA history. Whalen's No.13 jersey is the first in Lynx history to be retired. Maya Moore is considered by many in and out of the Lynx organization to be the best player to ever play for the team. These are lofty praises for a player that is still active and in her prime. Moore was selected first in the WNBA draft by a Lynx team that won only 13 games the season before. She averaged 13.2 points per game to go along with 4.6 rebounds en route to the rookie of the year award. Two years later, the Lynx posted a league-best 27 wins and won the WNBA Championship. Moore was the MVP of the 2013 WNBA Finals. In 2014, Moore averaged 23.9 points and 8.1 rebounds a contest. She also logged more than three assists and nearly two steals a game. The effort was good enough to earn her League MVP honors. Maya Moore has played in six WNBA All-Star games and is the first player in history to be named MVP of the game three times.
