Brittney Griner is well-known for her performances on a basketball court. But Griner also has a more fun, relaxed side to her.

Being a professional basketball player of the WNBA makes Brittney Griner’s schedule extremely hectic, so she sacrificed the majority of her personal life.

Since high school, she recalls hardly being at home during the summer due to games, practices, and resting.

So now every time she gets a day off, she enjoys to stay at home playing video games such as PlayStation 4 saying, “I’m really into the ‘Kill Zone’ games.” Griner ironically said she’s not a fan of basketball video games because she, “has enough basketball in real life.”

“I’m into the whole vampire thing,” Griner added.

She likes to watch Vampire Diaries, and other TV shows regarding the classic creatures of the night. She also takes the advantage of a day off by getting lots of rest.

Griner prepares herself for every game with a strong mentality centered around music. “I get hyped with music,” Griner commented.
