Wow. I thought dunking in the WNBA was prohibited
Nope, there just wasn't many that can do it.
But that pick and roll to pass to Griner for the dunk... that right there was a different era of change in Womens Basketball.
Never never would I have seen that before, she can dunk in the halfcourt set with ease off pick and rolls. That wowed me.
If the Mercury turn out to be a very winning team, they could probably bring a large crowd, the crowd they brought just for her debut was impressive for a WNBA game.
If Sportscenter hypes up a Griner vs Parker sort of thing when the Mercury play the Sparks and it lives up to the hype it could breath new life into that organization.
It just needs those kind of stars to market and really make you watch it.
If they can get the right hype train behind it they'll survive. That organization needs a "Magic vs Bird". If Marketing is smart they'll do all they can to push Griner vs Parker and hype the heck out of it and hope the matchup lives up to the hype. Could make or break the WNBA imo. Phoenix and LA already have bad blood. So if Marketing is smart, they run with it.
A lot has to happen, like both Phoenix and LA being winning teams and their matchups living up to the hype, but if the stars align right it "could" save that organization.
