Brittney Griner was the top pick of the Phoenix Mercury in Monday’s WNBA Draft. A decade ago this year, LeBron James was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. Griner is talked about among fans of the women’s game the way LeBron was talked about as a high-schooler, a once-in-a-generation talent who would have a transformational effect on the sport.
Watch LeBron talk about Griner’s dominance in the video below. Oh, and it is said that Brittney’s hands are larger than LeBron’s. And in the pic below, her wingspan is trumping Andrew Bynum’s. WOW. I bet Brittney could give some of these NBA players a run for their money!
