Minnesota Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen will retire from the WNBA at the conclusion of the 2018 season.

Whalen got to end last season on her college home court, Williams Arena, winning a championship in Game 5 of the WNBA Finals.

Whalen isn't leaving basketball, as she will still be the head coach of the University of Minnesota women's basketball team.

On Sunday, Whalen came off the bench for the first time since her first game in the WNBA, in 2004.

The 36-year-old Whalen is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. The Lynx won WNBA titles in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017.

When asked about her legacy as she prepares to walk away after 15 WNBA seasons, Whalen demurred - and not just because that's the Minnesotan thing to do.

Despite the influx of talent, the Lynx struggled in Whalen's first season, finishing 13-21 and out of the playoffs. In her Lynx career, Whalen has appeared in 280 games, averaging 11.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg and 4.9 apg.

The Lynx have already qualified for a spot in this year's playoffs and have three more regular season games left on their schedule.
