Brittney Griner Speaks in Court: ‘I Never Meant to Break Any Laws Here’

‘I know everybody keeps talking about political pawn and politics, but I hope that that is far from this courtroom’
By Grabien Staff


GRINER: "I want to apologize to my teammates, my club YGMK, my fans and the city of (Yekaterinburg) for my mistake that I made and the embarrassment that I brought on them. (...) I want to also apologize to my parents, my siblings, the Phoenix Mercury organization back at home, the amazing women of the WNBA, and my amazing spouse back at home. (...) I never meant to hurt anybody, I never meant to put in jeopardy the Russian population, I never meant to break any laws here.”
