As Brittney Griner prepared for her first WNBA game since 2021, she held a press conference Thursday, speaking publicly for the first time since being imprisoned in Russia for 10 months for carrying cannabis oil vape cartridges through a Moscow airport.
It was an emotional news conference for Griner, who shed tears as she answered her first question.
“I’m no stranger to hard times,” Griner said. “You’re gonna be faced with adversities throughout your life. This was a pretty big one.”
More to come.
