    Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentCandace Parker Bio – Smartasses Magazine Candace Nicole Parker (born April 19, 1986) is an All-American basketball player in the WNBA. Parker attended Naperville Central High School in Naperville, Illinois, where she graduated in 2004. On November 13, 2008, Parker married her fiance, Shelden Williams, who was a college basketball star for Duke University, and reserve for the Denver Nuggets. In November 2016, the couple split up after eight years of marriage.

    While she was in her sophomore year, Parker became the first female high-school player and only the fifth woman at any level to dunk a basketball in a sanctioned game. While in high school, she led her basketball team to Class AA state titles in 2003 and 2004. Parker is also the only two-time award winner of the USA Today Player of the Year, winning the award in 2003 and 2004. In college, Parker was a starter on the Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team, winners of the 2007 and 2008 NCAA championships. As a Lady Vol, she became the first woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game and the first woman to dunk twice in a college game — two milestones she set as a redshirt freshman on March 19, 2006. Professionally, Parker was drafted to the Los Angeles Sparks in 2008, and became the first WNBA player to win both the Rookie of the Year and the Most Valuable Player award in the same season. During each WNBA offseason from 2010 to 2015, Parker played for UMMC Ekaterinburg of the Russian League, winning five consecutive championships with the team. In February 2017, she signed a two-month contract with Fenerbahçe Istanbul of the Turkish League. Parker played for Team USA at the 2012 Summer Olympics, and led the team in rebounds and blocks while helping them win the gold medal. Despite her performance in the previous Olympics, Parker was not selected to play for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

    Parker won the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award as the favorite female athlete in the sports category. Parker grew up in Illinois, adoring the Chicago Bulls and was a Michael Jordan fan. Her all-time favorite player is Ron Harper, of whom she has a picture hanging in her bedroom.

    Why we think she’s hot:

    Just in case you’ve ever fantasized about someone with the looks of Beyonce, and the moves of Jordan, well, here ya go. This girl brings it so hard, it’s not “Be like Mike” any more, it’s “Be like Candace” and even the Monopoly board has to be thinking about changing it’s second most expensive property to “Parker’s Place”.
