In her 13th WNBA season, Parker averaged 9.7 rebounds per game to win her third title in this category and first since back-to-back Peak Performer Awards for rebounding in 2008 and 2009.
The two-time WNBA Most Valuable Player posted 10 or more rebounds 12 times this season, including a streak of five consecutive double-digit rebounding games from July 30 – Aug. 9. She grabbed a season-high 17 rebounds against the Mystics on Sept. 10.

Vandersloot wins her fourth consecutive Peak Performer award for assists with another record-setting season and her fifth overall (she also won in 2015).
The Sky guard averaged a WNBA-record 10.0 assists in 22 games, breaking her record of 9.1 assists from 2019. She also set the single-game record with 18 assists against the Indiana Fever on Aug. 31.
