However, Maya has come down harsh on the rumor, stating that she is too busy for these nonsensical gossips.
Maya has never been linked to any person substantially so far. She has said, time and again, that the love of her life is basketball, to which she is unconditionally committed too.
However, her personal life is out of media’s limelight, and she has never had to deal with anything outside the sport so far.
Maya, as a sportswoman, has been one of the most successful in the history of women basketball. She has won the WNBA title back to back and also won other women basketball leagues around the world. She won the Chinese version of the WNBA as well as the European and the Spanish.
She has at least ten league titles in total and has been awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament on a number of occasions. She is also the only athlete in the history of women’s basketball to win the MVP award in three different continents.
Apart from the WNBA, she has also won two world championship medals and was awarded the MVP among all the women basketball players in the world in 2014.
She also holds an Olympic gold for basketball and is determined to add one more next year, when the Olympic takes place in Brazil.
Maya’s career stats so far have been recorded thumping. She averages 29.6 per game in terms of points. Her rebound average per game is 6.3 per game, which is more than any female basketball player. Her per game assist is 14.3 per game, which is phenomenal in terms of basketball.
Maya, ever since she began playing professional basketball, has won a championship in every season except her first. She also won the best player of the season award from 2012 to 2014.
In the ongoing 2015 season, she has already established herself as a favorite once again and her peers are clearly miles away from catching up to her.
Maya, on a spiritual level, is a Christian and has remained very outspoken about her faith. Many people have used some of her quotes in regard to Christianity for inspiration and courage.
Maya is also the first female basketball player to be endorsed by the popular Jordan brand. Jordan brand also reported a 30 percent increase in female sportswear and shoes after they signed Maya.
Maya is clearly the highest paid female basketball player in the world and her salary in 2017 was $200,000 per year. Her net worth remains undisclosed.
