Candace Parker's Ultimate Move: Quick Feet and Quick Thinking

At 6'4", Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker is one of the tallest players in the WNBA. The fact that she can move better than most smaller players makes her the most dangerous female player in the world. Virtually unguardable, Candace makes her living by using her quick feet and quick thinking—results of her diligent study of the game—to overmatch opponents on her way to the rim.

Once she introduces herself to the open rim, things get even more impressive: Candace was the first WNBA player to dunk in consecutive games; and as a freshman at the University of Tennessee, she threw it down twice in one game.

Watch the second installment of the Ultimate Moves video series to see how Candace added some slash to her game with this Ultimate Move.
