WNBA star Brittney Griner describes how she was bullied as a child and how basketball helped her cope with depression and open up to her mother about her sexuality. Griner’s talents on the basketball court took her to Baylor University, where she led the team to the 2012 national championship, and she was selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2013 WNBA draft by the Phoenix Mercury. Griner also discusses her 2015 domestic violence arrest on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after an argument with fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson, her then-fiancée. Griner also details how she matured and grew as a person while playing for UMMC Ekaterinburg in the Russian Premier League.
