Team Delle Donne, Team Wilson prepare for WNBA All-Star 2019

Las Vegas, NV- Team captains and leading vote-getters A’ja Wilson and Elena Delle Donne each led their team through light; yet spirited practices on Friday, a day before they will lead their respective teams during the hallmark event of WNBA All-Star weekend 2019.


Each squad finished their respective shootarounds with a light-hearted shooting competition, as each player had a chance to take their shot at making a half-court heave. As has been the custom for the majority of the past two years, Laimbeer offered $100 to the winner. In what was likely the least surprising development, team captain and leading vote-getter Delle Donne casually sank her shot and claimed the cash prize. Meanwhile, Natasha Howard of the Seattle Storm caught some by surprise in banking in her shot and seizing the prize for Team Wilson.


Don’t forget, the WNBA’s midseason showcase, the 2019 All-Star game will tip-off at 12:30 pm PST.
