The WNBA GM survey reveals that most GMs in the league think the Minnesota Lynx will win their second straight title this season.
The Minnesota Lynx took home their first ever WNBA title last season, and they are already the favorites, and by an overwhelming majority of voters, to repeat the feat next season.
The 10th annual WNBA's GM Survey was released back on Wednesday and 83% of the GMs selected the Lynx as their favorites to take home a second straight title. They also placed Lynx star Seimone Augustus up as one of the favorites to win league MVP, along with perennial MVP candidate Candace Parker of the LA Sparks. The two stars each received 25% of the vote from the group.
The Lynx's season starts on May 20 on ABC when they host the winner of the 'Team that's most fun to watch' award, the Phoenix Mercury, led by prolific scorer Diana Taurasi.
