She's won WNBA titles, led teams to the Final Four and has dazzled Minnesota Lynx fans with her scoring and passing ability for years.

But Thursday night when the Minnesota Lynx meet up with the Connecticut Sun, Lindsay Whalen has the chance to do something no one else in the WNBA has ever done.

The Hutchinson native enters Thursday's game just four points shy of becoming the first WNBA player in league history to score 5,000 points, dish out 2,000 assists and grab 1,500 rebounds.

She was recently one of three Lynx players named to the WNBA's Top 20 of All-Time list – celebrating the league's 20th season.
