Mercury Players Hit Brittney Griner With Wild Accusation

The Phoenix Mercury are in a groove, having won four of their last five games, including Tuesday night’s 99-93 home win over the New York Liberty. Just before that game, Mercury players were asked to give their impersonation of teammate, Brittney Griner. At least two of them tried to accuse Griner of an unpleasant locker room crime.

“That’s all she do, all day. Fart,” said guard Kahleah Copper.

“BG just be fartin’. I don’t know if you all know that about her, but she be blowing a** in that locker room,” added guard Natasha Cloud.

Even though they exposed Griner’s hilarious habit, they definitely love and appreciate the veteran being active again after a toe injury forced her to miss the Mercury’s first 10 games of the 2024 WNBA regular season.

In the win over the Liberty, Griner dropped 19 points on 8 of 13 shooting from the floor to go with four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes of action.

Griner is fueling the Mercury’s ongoing surge. She is consistently providing Phoenix with efficient offense, rebounding and imposing defensive presence in the paint. Before Griner’s return, the Mercury went 1-5 over a tough six-game stretch.
