WNBA Scoring/Rebounds/Assists Milestones to watch for in the 2021 season

Courtney Vandersloot of the Chicago Sky.

The 2021 WNBA season is upon us and it’s time to track the annual scoring, rebounding and assists milestones that WNBA players will hit this season. There are several players who are going to hit big milestones. Diana Taurasi has reached 9000 career points and is the first ever WNBA player to do so. Sue Bird has reached 3000 assists and is the first ever WNBA player to hit 3000 career assists at 40 years old. Courtney Vandersloot joins an elite group of players after she hit the 3000 career points mark, the 1000 rebounds mark and the 2000 assists mark this season. She will join Sue Bird, Lindsay Whalen and now Diana Taurasi as the only other WNBA players to achieve those milestones.

My inspiration comes from Kevin Brown, who started an amazing WNBA website devoted to tracking these statistics and more. Kurtis Zimmerman also has an amazing WNBA and women’s college basketball website that has so much knowledge and information. Both are wonderful websites and I suggest bookmarking both of them.

*With the WNBA regular season over, I’ve compiled a list of players who have reached scoring/rebounds/assists milestones as well as the date. Only regular season games count towards milestones. All of the players that did not reach their milestones this year will have to do so next year. *
