Considered a pioneer of the WNBA, Lisa Leslie became the first woman to dunk in a professional basketball game in 2003, when she threw down an open-court jam for the Los Angeles Sparks. The 6-foot-5 USC product won three WNBA MVP awards and four Olympic gold medals, but might be best remembered for being the first female player to throw one down on a fastbreak.
