Leslie was the first women to make a dunk in a professional game. It was on a Tuesday night while Leslie was playing for the Los Angeles Sparks. Her friends didn't believe that she could accomplish her goals in basketball, so when she became the first women to make a professional dunk, her friends had higher respect for her. She received a nickname from her younger sister after she made the dunk. Her nickname was "Dunkin."
She was one of the first six members of 2002's USA basketball world championship. She has gotten many honors, medals, and awards. We hope to hear more and see more of Lisa Leslie soon.
