Scoring Votes: Phoenix Mercury Players Who’ve Won Elections

With the 2016 election on Tuesday, we take a look back at the many votes Mercury players have won and the accolades that have come with them.

With a franchise total of 102 awards, Diana Taurasi earns the Mercury’s “president” title, having garnered 44 of those awards during her career. Following her, Phoenix’s two “co-vice presidents” are DeWanna Bonner and Cappie Pondexter, as each have won 10.

“Secretary of state” honors belongs to Brittney Griner, as the 6-8 center has won nine awards through votes in just her four years in the WNBA. While Taurasi, Bonner, Pondexter and Griner lead the way in total wards won, the long list of Mercury winners can be found below.
