LeBron James is urging others to help WNBA star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia for more than 100 days. Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport in February after Russian officials said a search of her luggage revealed vape cartridges with oil derived from cannabis, and her detention has already been extended twice.
James and his company Uninterrupted encouraged others to learn about Griner’s case, sign a Change.org petition, and post about her case on social media to encourage President Biden and Vice President Harris to take more action to bring her back to the U.S.
