Griner made headlines when she came out as openly gay ahead of the 2013 WNBA draft, where she was selected first overall.

Since then, Griner has talked at length about being the victim of bullying throughout her life, and how it made her into the woman she is today.

"People called me a dude and said there was no way I could be a woman," she once wrote in The New York Times. "Some even wanted me to prove it to them."
