MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx showed potential for years, with plenty of high draft picks for a success-starved franchise to build around. Pieces were always missing in the end.

Perhaps the most important area that needed to be shored up was team chemistry, and they finally found the right mix on their way to the WNBA championship last season.

Taj McWilliams-Franklin led this bonding process like only a mother could.

The 41-year-old, 6-foot-2 center — who has three daughters of her own — has returned for another year with the Lynx, and her teammates couldn’t be happier about it.
