  • WNBA superstar Brittney Griner has become the unofficial, ill-equipped translator for the Phoenix Mercury.

  • Her legendary teammate - WNBA all-time leading scorer Diana Taurasi - has seamlessly switched languages to answer a question in back-to-back press conferences at the WNBA Finals.

  • Griner seemed surprised the first time Taurasi fielded a question in Spanish, but when the 10-time WNBA All-Star was asked another one after the Mercury's Game 2 victory Wednesday night, the 6-foot-9 dunker was prepared to offer mock translations for the group.

  • As Taurasi mixed some English words - "overtime," for example - into her answer, Griner would knowingly nod her head and jokingly explain the meaning to everyone else in the room.

  • At the end of Taurasi's answer, a Phoenix staffer asked "Brittney, translation?" and she erupted into a fit of giggles.
