UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Brittney Griner's eyes lighted up at the thought of the WNBA adding a dunk contest to its All-Star weekend festivities.
Griner won't be participating in the All-Star game Saturday because of a sprained left knee but said she would come up with something special for the fans if the league added it to its All-Star weekend festivities.
Griner made a splash in her WNBA debut dunking twice and – when healthy – puts on a show in warmups for the fans.
Sure Griner would be the heavy favorite to win, but don't hand her the title just yet. There are nearly a dozen women in the league who can dunk, including stars Candace Parker, Sylvia Fowles, Elizabeth Cambage, Nneka Ogwumike and Maya Moore.
