Oh hey, yesterday was the 2014 WNBA All-Star Game, or as I like to call it, “The whaaaat?”. If you are like me, you didn’t even know the WNBA was a real thing. Seriously though, I’ve heard rumors of a WNBA, but much like Bigfoot, I didn’t think anyone had actually seen it, or could prove its existence.
So, while the vast majority of Americans, and I’m talking like 99% of the population of the United States of America, were out mowing their lawns, washing their cars, fishing, playing on a beach somewhere, watching re-runs of Law and Order: SVU, polishing the silver, re-reading 50 Shades of Grey for the 23rd time, or just taking an afternoon nap, the WNBA decided to have an all-star game.
During the game, two players from one of the teams got a fast break opportunity, but sadly missed the mark, with an attempt at an off the backboard dunk. Check it out.
Okay, in all seriousness, that could have happened to anyone of the NBA players who have tried it, and I’m sure if you do some digging you can find proof. I guess these WNBA players should have just stuck with the always safe lay-up, I mean, that’s like their signature shot, right?
However, there was a bright spot in the WNBA all-star weekend, as 6’3″ Glory Johnson slam-dunked the ball to start things off with a bang.
So there you have it, Brittney Griner isn’t the only WNBA player that can dunk. And, that Glory Johnson dunk could even be called “Thunderous”. I know I’ve joked about the WNBA, but I most certainly cannot dunk, in fact, back in my more athletic days, I could barely dunk a tennis ball, so I most certainly give these ladies some respect.
What do you think? Do you watch the WNBA? Is it real? Let me know in the comments below.
