(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: The 2023 WNBA All-Star overall balloting has been made, but there is one final phase of the teams’ selections that remains. That would happen to be the addition of the reservists and hopefully, the Coaches will add to that merited list, our Los Angeles Sparks outstanding 5’6 point-guard, #21/Jordin Canada, the 2 x WNBA Champion with the Seattle Storm, the Windward High School-Los Angeles Times All-Area MVP in 2013, the All-CIF & 2014 McDonald’s All-American participant, and the UCLA Bruins All-Pac 12 performer.
In just her second season with the Sparks, she is now averaging (13.8) points per game, along with (3.5) rebounds and (5.0) assists while consistently performing on defense with the dynamic statistic of (2.0) steals per game. To Canada’s fan-base delight, she has played, powered, and willed her way into the minds and hearts of many WNBA fans for a deserving recognition and addition to this year’s All-Star Game.
Here is the Team’s composite on Jordin encouraging that to happen, with her current 2023 Rankings & Highlights profile, accompanied by some of the “key” stats and analytics of Canada’s performance for consideration to make the WNBA All-Star Reserve list.

The head coaches will vote for (3) guards, (5) frontcourt players and (4) players at either position regardless of conference. They may not vote for their own players. The reserves will be announced on Saturday, July 1st.
