From Sports Illustrated | WNBA by Madison Williams

WNBA stars Nneka Ogwumike and Skylar Diggins-Smith joined ESPYs host Steph Curry on the stage during Wednesday night’s show to share a powerful message about Brittney Griner’s wrongful detainment in Russia.

“We cannot stop fighting for her,” Curry said. “We cannot stop believing for her. And we will not stop hoping for the day when we can welcome her home safely.”

Curry said all of this while sporting Griner’s Mercury jersey. Ogwumike, the president of the WNBA player’s association, detailed all of Griner’s accomplishments, including her being an eight-time All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist.
