Lisa Leslie Net Worth and salary: Lisa Leslie is an American former professional women's basketball player for the WNBA and occasional model who has a net worth of $5 million. Lisa Leslie was born July 7, 1972 in Gardena, California. She was the first WNBA player to win the regular season MVP, the All-Star Game MVP and the playoff MVP in the same season. In 2002, she was the WNBA all-time leading scorer and was named MVP of the WNBA Championship. Leslie was also a member of the gold-winning U.S. Olympic teams in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008. Already six feet tall in the seventh grade, Leslie disliked it when people asked her if she played basketball, but after reluctantly joining the sport in middle school, she was hooked. While at Morningside High School in Los Angeles, she led the team to two state championships. In college, at the University of Southern California, she set several Pac-10 conference records for points and rebounds. In her final year at University of Southern California, Leslie was named the 1994 National Player of the Year. She made her first trip to the Olympics in 1996 (Atlanta, Georgia) where she assisted the U.S. team in taking home the gold medal in women's basketball. That same year, Leslie also launched a modeling career. She retired from the WBNA in 2009 and added 'author' to her resume when she released her autobiography Don't Let the Lipstick Fool You. Since her retirement, Leslie has worked as a sports commentator and analyst for such channels as ABC, NBC and Fox Sports Net. Lisa Leslie returned to the Sparks team in 2011, but this time as an investor rather than a player. She is now one of the team's owners and also shares her knowledge of the sport through the Lisa Leslie Basketball & Leadership Academy.
