Moore, Fowles, and Augustus Named WNBA All-Stars


Despite Minnesota's Maya Moore being the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star Game, she will not be one of the captains who pick the two teams.

Moore was voted a captain by receiving the most votes, but told the league she was unable to perform the captain duties.

Elena Delle Donne and Candace Parker will captain the WNBA All-Star teams.

Delle Donne is fourth in the league in scoring with 20.6 points per game. Under the new All-Star Game format, players were selected for the first time without regard for conference affiliation. She might have been snubbed once again if the league adhered to picking East and West All-Star teams as it had in previous years.

With Moore passing on the opportunity to be captain, that gave Parker the nod as she finished third in the voting by fans, players, coaches and the media.

Delle Donne's team will be led by Seattle coach Dan Hughes, who has guided the Storm to the league's best record. Delle Donne will pick first and then alternate picks with Parker.
