So, what kind of WNBA fan are YOU?

Check out petrel's recent post on Swish Appeal: The Power Law of Sports Fandom

I'm going to ask you ten trivia questions about the WNBA. The answers to these questions won't be provided - for help, see your local internet.
1. Name the first team to win four WNBA championships.
2. Name the only two players to win the Most Valuable Player award in the WNBA three times.
3. Name the only player to win the MVP award as a rookie.
4. What were the two major changes made to WNBA rules in the start of the 2006 season?
5. Which team won the first WNBA game ever played?
6. Who was the first player to ever score a basket in the WNBA?
7. What player scored the most points ever in a WNBA game? (Bonus: How many points did she score?)
8. Which WNBA player born in the United States played for the Russian Olympic team in the 2008 Olympics?
9. Who is the tallest player in WNBA history?
10. After which player is the WNBA's Sportsmanship Award named?

If you feel bad that you don't know the answers to many of these questions, well...don't.
PS Because there's one I don't know, I'm subbing in a question: Which team is the only team to have played back-to-back-to-back games. (Bonus: Why?)
