Elena Delle Donne helped the Mystics to the No. 1 playoff seed and home-court advantage throughout with a 100-86 win over the Chicago Sky Sunday.
But in the process, EDD cemented her already MVP-worthy resume this season by becoming the only player in WNBA history to record a 50/40/90 season.
During the course of the season, she hit 50 percent plus from the field (220-of-427), 40 percent plus from beyond the arc (52-of-121) and hit over 90 percent of her free throws (114-of -117).

Wizards stars John Wall and Bradley Beal tweeted their congratulations of the accomplishment to start a wave of recognition from other athletes.
That recognition was followed by one of a few members of the NBA's 50/40/90 club, Steve Nash. The others include Larry Bird, Mark Price, Reggie Miller, Dirk Nowitzki, Malcom Brogdon, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

Three-point sharpshooter Steph Curry added to the cacophony of congratulations, as Delle Donne's three-point percentage to complete the stat relied on the final game.
This adds to a long list of accomplishments for Delle Donne this season, as she's been the W's most valuable player for three consecutive the months.
