The All-WNBA Team is an annual Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) honor bestowed on the best players in the league following every WNBA season. The voting is conducted by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States. The team has been selected in every season of the league's existence, dating back to its inaugural season in 1997. The All-WNBA Team is composed of two five-woman lineups—a first and second team, comprising a total of 10 roster spots.

Players receive five points for a first team vote and three points for a second team vote. The top five players with the highest point total make the first team, with the next five making the second team.

Lisa Leslie holds the record for the most total selections with twelve. Tamika Catchings follows with eleven total honors. Diana Taurasi hold the record for the most First Team selections with nine, while Catchings and Lauren Jackson follow with seven.
