Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner makes Out Magazine's Power 50

Cyd Ziegler of SB Nation's Outsports briefly summarized Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner's selection to the Out Magazine's Power 50, making her and Michael Sam the first two professional athletes ever to make the list.

...Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner, who comes in at No. 31. Griner has become a cultural powerhouse in the last year, writing a powerful memoir with Sue Hovey, locking up a big endorsement deal with Nike and becoming a face of not just the WNBA but of women's sports. Plus, her refusal to conform to societal norms for women with her dress and tattoos has made her a hero to so many young boys and girls who feel just a little bit different.
