Despite trying to bless each other with the proper fade, and getting arrested for their trouble, Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson and got married as schedule. However, the WNBA has suspended the for seven games, without pay, for their bad judgement, and fisticuffs.
Griner plays for the Phoenix Mercury, and Johnson for the Tulsa Shock — and each will begin their suspensions when the WNBA season begins in June. The season is only 34 games long … so 7 games is roughly 20% of the season.
You’ll recall … the couple got arrested after brawling with each other in their Phoenix area home. They were engaged at the time, but went through with their wedding 2 weeks later.
The WNBA President Laurel Richie says she consulted with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver — as well as several abuse counselors and domestic violence groups — before reaching her decision.
In addition to the suspensions … Brittney and Glory will have to attend individual counseling sessions.
Does this mean the honeymoon’s over?
