Brittney Griner Goes No. 1 to Phoenix Mercury In WNBA Draft

Brittney Griner is ready to move past her stellar college career and embark on another career in professional basketball.

With the no. 1 pick of the 2013 WNBA draft, the Phoenix Mercury chose Griner over Notre Dame’s stand-out and Lil Wayne crush Skylar Diggins, who went third to the Tulsa Shock.

Griner–who at times while on the hardwood seemed unflappable–was a little on edge while at the draft. “It’s a dream come true. I’m like a little kid in Disney World the first time meeting all the characters. Sitting at the table they said 15 seconds and my heart started beating so fast. I was grabbing the tablecloth underneath,” Griner said in an interview with The Grio.
