Brittney Griner Had As Many Dunks In Her First WNBA Game As Any Other Player Has Had In Her Career

Not a bad start.

1. The Pheonix Mercury lost their first game after taking phenom Brittney Griner first overall, but Griner still made her mark:

2. Griner finished the game with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 blocks, as well as these two dunks, the first of which she’s celebrating here.

3. Only two other players, Candace Parker and Lisa Leslie, have dunked in the history of the WNBA: Parker twice, Leslie once. Griner dunked twice in her FIRST GAME.

Making history in your first game: not a bad way to start a career.
