Tina Thompson Biography

Tina Thompson was born February 10, 1975 in Los Angeles, California. Thompson is a professional basketball player in the WNBA.

Thompson became a member of the Houston Comets dynasty that won four consecutive WNBA championships from 1997-2000. She was selected #1 overall in round 1 of the 1997 WNBA draft. Thompson is a five-time All-Star, winning MVP honors at the 2000 All-Star Game. She led all Western Conference players in All-Star voting in 2001. Thompson has been named to the All-WNBA First Team three times (1997, 1998, 2004) and All-WNBA Second Team four times (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002).

She gave birth to her first child, a son whose father is NBA player Damon Jones, in May 2005; she resumed playing with the Comets only two months later.

Thompson is the WNBA's second all-time leading scorer behind Lisa Leslie. Thompson scored 28 points in a loss to the New York Liberty on June 5, 2008, becoming the second player to reach the milestone of 5,000 points in the WNBA.

She has several game-day superstitions, including taking a shower after shootaround, taking a 45-minute nap, wearing lipstick to play every game and dressing in a specific order.

Thompson was an alternate for the 2000 Olympic squad. Thompson is a current member of the U.S. women's basketball team and she earned a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games: Beijing 2008. She was named to the '98 and 2002 USA World Championship teams, but injuries kept her from both competitions. She would earn her gold medal in 2004 in Greece.

Thompson has also participated in other professional leagues overseas. Following the 2001 WNBA season, Thompson played for Rovereto Basket in Rovereto, Italy and in 2003 she played for the Kumho Falcons of the Women's Korea Basketball League (WKBL).
