  • Lynx Send Whalen's #13 to Rafters in Jersey Retirement Ceremony

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.

The Minnesota Lynx honored a former player turned coach on Saturday. She made six All-Star teams.

Whalen thanked her fans for sticking by her throughout her career.

"I always tried to represent (Minnesota) on the court as much as I could as a player and do my best", Whalen said. "It was great today to see them and supporting as always and it was a lot of fun".

"We talk about culture that Lindsay helped us to establish", Lynx head coach and general manager Cheryl Reeve said. "A class act on and off the court, the trust, the elite nature, the way she conducted her business, that's what led to the winning".

Coach Reeve and the fans said Whalen changed the game of women's basketball and inspired young people to play.

The Lynx couldn't deliver a win in Whalen's return, however, falling to the Los Angeles Sparks 89-85.
