Overlooked? League-leading, All-Star-laden Lynx thriving despite deficit of attention

The WNBA has crafted a marketing campaign around some popular rookies. The brand is called the "Three to See."

In Minnesota, the Lynx have their "Four to Fear."

Rookie sensations Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne and Skylar Diggins were already big names before they stepped on the court for their first pro games. But Lynx All-Stars Seimone Augustus, Rebekkah Brunson, Maya Moore and Lindsay Whalen have been doing this for a lot longer.

The Lynx filled four of the 11 spots on the Western Conference squad. At 14-3, they're leading the league by a full two games. Their seven-game winning streak is the longest in the WNBA this season. That puts them in prime position to chase a title after losing in the finals last year.
