Griner Up For WNBA Adding Dunk Contest

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (July 26, 2013) -- Brittney Griner's eyes lighted up at the thought of the WNBA adding a dunk contest to its All-Star weekend festivities.

Griner won't be participating in the All-Star game Saturday because of a sprained left knee but said she would come up with something special for the fans if the league added it to its All-Star weekend festivities.

Griner made a splash in her WNBA debut dunking twice and - when healthy - puts on a show in warmups for the fans.

Sure Griner would be the heavy favorite to win, but don't hand her the title just yet. There are nearly a dozen women in the league who can dunk, including stars Candace Parker, Sylvia Fowles, Elizabeth Cambage, Nneka Ogwumike and Maya Moore.
