WESTERN CONFERENCE
Diana Taurasi Of The Phoenix Mercury

Phoenix last season: 19-15, 3rd place, conference finals.<br><br>
Coach: Corey Gaines.<br><br>
Top players: G Diana Taurasi (21.6), F Candace Dupree (8.2 rpg), C DeWanna Bonner (7.0 rpg).<br><br>
The skinny: There is no player in the WNBA, perhaps the world, like Taurasi and she will continue to lead the Mercury in all it does. But veteran Penny Taylor's loss (knee) will hurt badly. Rookie point guard Samantha Prahalis, their first-round pick, is also as confident as they come.
