Delle Donne Makes History, First WNBA Player to Reach 50/40/90 Mark
It’s never been done before in the WNBA.
In fact, it’s a feat that has been only accomplished 12 times in the NBA.
Now, WNBA superstar Elena Delle Donne joins the elite 50/40/90 club along some of the game’s biggest stars including Larry Bird, Kevin Durant, and four-time member Steve Nash. Players enter the club when they should at least 50-percent from the field, 40-percent from long range, and 90-percent from the free throw line.
“We can’t win a championship without her. We can’t win a series without her,” said fellow Washington Mystics teammate, Natasha Cloud.

The future Hall of Famer has averaged 19.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game this season, leading the Mystics to a 26-8 mark, good for first place in the Eastern Conference and the best record in the WNBA.
