Candace Parker is one of the most talented and influential players in women's basketball. The former number one overall pick in 2008 has raked up a number of accomplishments in her career. Parker has won the WNBA MVP twice, received Rookie of the Year, and also has two Olympic Gold Medals. She also was the first player in league history to win Rookie of the Year and MVP in the same season.

The Chicago Sky star has been in the league for quite some time and the questions are starting to pop up about how much longer this will continue. The 36-year-old was recently asked about her plans following the season by Chris Haynes. After asking if she has given any thought to retirement, Parker replied:

“I don't know anything right now. But if you know me, I'm one of those people who if I can't adequately give my all to something or be the best version of myself, then I won't do it. And so I think that's where I'm at.”

While Candace Parker may not be at the level she once was, she still is a high-level player within the league. She earned her seventh All-Star appearance and is averaging 13.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game this season. If she does elect to call it a career she certainly will leave quite the legacy. It is also worth noting that Parker already has experience as an analyst and commentator for Turner Sports. She provided coverage for both TNT and NBA TV during the NCAA tournament. Having her work cut out for her in her post-playing days is a major benefit and she will surely succeed in this role whenever she elects to fully dive in after her WNBA career.
