WNBA Superstar Brittney Griner advocates bringing the wrongfully detained home


At the end of last year, Brittney Griner, the renowned WNBA superstar, finally returned home. For 10 months she had been wrongfully detained in a Russian prison

Despite being in the public eye since her release, Griner seamlessly rejoined her WNBA franchise. The 6-foot-9 center has made a triumphant comeback, displaying the same skill and prowess she possessed before she was jailed.
