Suns Honoring Mercury Star Brittney Griner With Court Design

The Suns will honor Mercury star Brittney Griner on their home court for the remainder of the playoffs. 

When Phoenix hosts Dallas in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday, the Footprint Center will feature Griner’s initials and her No. 42 on the sides of the court.

The Suns’ decision to honor Griner comes more than a week after the WNBA announced that it would honor the seven-time WNBA All-Star with a season-long tribute with each team having a floor decal that includes Griner’s initials and jersey number.
