Real talk tho, now its time to change how much WNBA players are paid cause only reason Brittney even went to Russia was to play basketball for $1 million compared to $220,000 here in the United States. THAT HAS TO CHANGE. even NBA rookies make more the WNBA veterans!!!

And I hope she gets PTSD support because she will need it.
Let this be the last Britney we have to free 🙏🏾
In reply to @Phil_Lewis_
happy she is being freed, but considering what Russia got in return and in a sports analogy, this should have been: Russia gets their #1 pick (dangerous arms dealer) in exchange for Griner, Whelan and a player to be named later.

Welcome home, Brittney
In reply to @Phil_Lewis_
These comments are disheartening. What has this country come to when people no longer care about their fellow American? Although the trade was not ideal, it was something. We got her back. Her family is relieved. I hope this never happens to any of you. Prayers 4 Whelan!
Still insane that this is the level of trade that has be done. So glad she’s free and able to return home.

Also, WNBA stars need to be paid more so they don’t have to play overseas to make more money.

Worst prisoner swap deal I can think of
Seeing everyone’s replies and opinions on this is funny cause some people just be saying anything with no facts or any knowledge behind it.
Great news!! I'm glad she's coming home.
I hope the 3 letter agencies are keeping an eye on ole boy we did the swap with. That's a bad dude and he could come back to bite.

I’m upset they still haven’t been able to get Paul Whelan out..he’s been there nearly 5y But I’m so glad BG will be coming home
Released for an arms dealer on a GEMINI FULL MOON CONJUNCT MARS! Bye! BYE!
Joe Biden actually going crazy this year.

Ok this might be a W how bad was Vitor Bout
Y'all better thank Joey
My wife coming home
Wait…I’m happy we getting Brittany back home don’t get me wrong. But Russia just got away with highway fucking robbery. If you don’t know who Viktor bout is. Look him up and find out what the DOJ charged him with.

Another slap in the face for America. If there is justice in this world a stray bullet may find it's mark while he is partying this Christmas and a Marine still suffers. This is too much.
ABOUT FUCKING TIME. This made me so sick forever
Finally some good news
Let’s go!!!!!!!!
God bless! I know her family will be so happy to close out this year with her at home, safe.
BG is finally free.
