Following Monday's selection of the Baylor center in the 2013 WNBA Draft, the organization decided to honor her in pretty memorable fashion.
The Mercury renamed First Street in downtown Phoenix "Griner Street" and unveiled a 77-foot banner of the two-time John R. Wooden Award winner on the east side of Hotel Palomar.
No pressure, rookie.
