In1984, Georgeann Wells became the first woman to dunk. The African American all-star originates from Columbus, Ohio. She stood six foot seven in height and was a four year letterman at West Virginia University. While attending the university, she was raw with her blockage game averaging a record of 436 blocked shots! The year 2006, Candace Parker of Tennessee was recognized as the first woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game, which she executed by dunking twice in one game. Queens Crown Yourself!
The 2013 WNBA Draft was one to remember! Not only was the best female baller of our time drafted to greatness but these ladies slayed in their various ensembles. Hands down Brittney Griner won Best Dressed!
Now before you say “Oh you’re just saying that cause she’s Brittney freakin Griner!” Ummm NO! You would be wrong. When I tell you I’ve been waiting on the day to see BG in a killer tailored suit, I got what I wanted. She did NOT disappoint at all. You don’t see most NBA players dressing this badd.
I honestly thought, wow she must have called up the infamous athlete stylist Rachel Johnson. On the contrary, she served thanks to Kellen Richards, a stylist for the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Oh and let’s not forget those fierce nails. I definitely look forward to what BG has in store for us her rookie year fashion wise….
I’m thinking Russell Westbrook of the WNBA!! Wondering if she got advice from her dude RG3 to have her socks game so tight. I see you B!
Onto my runner ups…
I was really diggin the sophisticated androgynous swag at the draft this year. ^^Loved Layshia Clarendon’s outfit! I just felt like it was too weekend at the Hamptons/Kentucky Derby for the draft though. However she and Tayler Hill were my top two after BG.
Oh and I looooove the new WNBA logo!!
