WNBA players make the bulk of their money overseas because they are paid relatively poorly by their US teams. The main season for them is in Russia/Europe and not the US. Griner is no greedier then any other player. She’s also no stupider. She’s probably been traveling with her CBD oil for years. She was not arrested this time by accident.
