Lynx Retire Lindsay Whalen's Jersey In Touching Tribute To Her Championship Legacy

Whalen joins late Timberwolves guard Malik Sealy and late Wolves coach Flip Saunders as the only people to have their names in the rafters of Target Center.

With the stands packed with fans, Whalen gathered with her former teammates, Lynx coaches and her family on the court to watch a touching video tribute before her jersey was officially retired.

Showing little expression, Whalen addressed her fans and shared her thanks for the retired number sent up to the rafters to cap a phenomenal career, then quickly directed the spotlight elsewhere.

The Minnesota Lynx honored a former player turned coach on Saturday. "It was great today to see them and supporting as always and it was a lot of fun". The Hutchinson, Minn., native helped the Lynx win four WNBA championships.

"Her jersey is in the rafters because she's a victor", said Reeve. "Just the class act on and off the court".

"Two best coaches in women's basketball right there", Whalen said of Auriemma and Reeve. "I've had so many, this is my 10th season now, people that have said they are following women's basketball because of Lindsay Whalen".

The Lynx lost to the LA Sparks Saturday 89-85.
