The Down Low
One of the only good moves I made in my WNBA fantasy league in 2020 was to pick Myisha up off the waiver wire. If you don't know what that means, don't worry, I barely do either (I lost my league 1-11). My point is, most casual WNBA fans weren't expecting huge things out of Myisha in 2020. In her first two years in the league, Hines-Allen had started only one game, and played less than 8 minutes per game in 2019.
But it turns out that all Myisha needed was the opportunity. With multiple Mystics players opting out of the 2020 season, Hines-Allen moved into the starting line-up and dominated. She opened the season with 24 points and 10 rebounds... and never really slowed down. Although she is a little short for her position of power forward, its her physical strength and conditioning that make her unstoppable. She ended the season on the All-WNBA Second Team and runner-up for Most Improved Player.
With all apologies to Kelsey Mitchell, here is a great example of Myisha's dominance in 2020:
