The Los Angeles Sparks is a Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) team based in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 1997, the Sparks are one of the eight original WNBA teams. Also one of the teams that participated in the league's inaugural game, the Sparks are the sister team of the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA. Since their inception, the Sparks have been a focal point of the league. The team's major star was former USC standout Lisa Leslie, who led the Sparks since the team's inception until her retirement in 2009. Like the Tulsa Shock, the Sparks are one of the two WNBA franchises whose city also has an NBA D-League team, the D-Fenders. - Source: Wikipedia
