Brittney Griner is a phenom. She is an incredibly talented basketball player. Griner stands at an astonishing 6’8″ with a 68 inch wingspan. She is the only college player selected to represent the US in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Today, Griner and the rest of the Baylor Women’s basketball team played the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Not only did the Lady Bears blow out the Jackets, 83-68, but Griner had a double double. She finished the game with 35 points, 10 rebounds, and six blocks. Those are the type of stats to make most men’s player jealous. Not only did she have a sensational night just looking at her stats, but her delivery is giving Blake Griffin a run for his money. Below is a video of Griner nailing a two handed dunk. It is almost unbelievable that a person let alone a girl is that powerful, but that is what is so inspirational. She is showing the world that girls can literally do anything men can do. She is definitely motivational for even some like myself who might never actually get on the court, but still faces the harsh stereotypes that women not only cannot play sports, but do not know anything about them. For that, I deeply thank you Brittney Griner for being yourself and doing it so well. I want to see her destroy any of the ignorant men who think girls cannot play on the court!
