Brittney Griner was transferred to Russian labor camp without the knowledge of anyone on her team

Brittney Griner transferred to Russian labor camp

Brittney Griner has been one of the most discussed professional athletes in the world. Nearly a year ago, she was detained in Russia. After being found in possession of illegal substances, Griner was sent to prison. During this span of time, the likes of LeBron James, and other major NBA stars have spoken out on behalf of getting her released from prison. As a result, the President of the United States has been working with Russia on Brittney Griner’s potential release.

Brittney Griner even being in Russia has sparked a debate about gender equality. The only reason Griner was in Russia to play basketball is because the WNBA was not paying enough to cover her expenses. As a result, she was spending her offseason playing for other leagues. So, her only reason for even being in Russia was for the sake of salary. This has led to a real discussion about the wages WNBA players are paid, as opposed to the wages of their male counterparts, in the NBA.

Brittney Griner was the subject of more bad news, last night into this morning. According to reports, she was moved to a labor camp. This decision and subsequent move came without the knowledge of Brittney Griner’s team. In addition, no one from the United States was informed of this transfer until it took place. Griner has been in prison for the past 265 days.
