Spanish league teams are seldom happy when playing at Getafe's small stadium in southern Madrid, no matter the result of their matches. Win or lose, teams have been complaining of poor field conditions at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, which has been attracting more attention than the hosts' decent Spanish league campaign so far. Barcelona had already complained of the stadium's field, saying it helped cause Ousmane Dembele's injury. (AP Photo/Francisco Seco, File)

Minnesota Lynx Star Maya Moore Wins Sports Illustrated's Performer of the Year Award

Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore is Sports Illustrated's Performer of the Year after winning her fourth WNBA championship this season.

The WNBA star not only led the Minnesota Lynx to its fourth title in seven years, but she's been a key player on more than a dozen teams that have won championships, ranging from her time at UConn to the WNBA to Olympic gold medals, to professional leagues around the globe. She’s added on a slew of individual awards as well, and done it all with an eye toward activism and the fight for social justice.

Since 2011, Moore has continued to excel, both with the Lynx and with overseas teams in Europe and China. Moore has won four WNBA championships (2011, 2013, 2015, 2017), WNBA Most Valuable Player Award (2014), WNBA Finals MVP Award (2013), two WNBA All-Star Game MVPs (2015, 2017), two Olympic gold medals (2012, 2016), scoring title (2014) and the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award (2011).

She has also been selected to four WNBA All-Star teams and three All-WNBA teams. In 2012, she won both the Spanish league title and EuroLeague title playing for Ros Casares Valencia. From 2013 to 2015, Moore won the Chinese league title every year.

In Minnesota's five-game series with the Los Angeles Sparks in the 2017 WNBA Finals, the Lynx fell to the brink of elimination down 2-1, but Moore averaged 17.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists to lead the comeback.

For her career, Moore has averaged 18.4 points and 6.0 rebounds on 45.8 percent shooting.

SI's Sportsperson of the Year Awards will be telecast for the first time this year. The show, which takes place at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY on December 5, will be televised on NBCSN at 8pm ET on December 8 and on Univision Deportes at 8pm ET on December 9.

Lionel Messi signs new Barcelona contract to 2021 with a new buyout clause set at £626million

Lionel Messi has finally put Barcelona's fans at ease by signing a new contract that will keep the star at the Spanish club for four more years. Messi signed the new deal on Saturday to tie him to Barcelona through 2021, meaning the Argentina forward will be 34 by the time it expires. With his former contract set to run out next summer, Messi would have been free to listen to offers from other teams on Jan. 1. That approaching deadline had generated speculation that Messi could follow Neymar's lead and leave. Messi's new deal includes a buyout clause of 700 million euros (835 million dollars). That massive figure is aimed at keeping away even the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, which secured Neymar last summer by triggering his buyout clause with a record 222 million euros ($262 million) payout. Lionel Messi poses with his four Golden Boot Credit: REUTERS Messi has been the heart and soul of Barcelona for more than a decade. A five-time winner of the Ballon d'Or for soccer's best player, Messi has helped Barcelona win 30 titles. That haul includes four Champions League titles and eight Spanish league crowns. Now in his 14th season, Messi is the club's all-time leading scorer with 523 goals in 602 matches. He received his fourth Golden Shoe award on Friday for leading all of Europe's leagues in scoring last season.
