The WNBA season is about to start this upcoming weekend and it gets a kickoff from Coi Leray with the start of promotion and word from the rapper.
With the season fastly approaching and the return of Brittney Griner, this season looks to be an exciting one as the WNBA drops the promo featuring narration by Leray. The background music that is blaring from the speakers is from the New Jersey native’s hit song, “Players.”
We are viewing the skills and play of last season’s Most Valuable Player, A’ja Wilson of the Las Vegas Aces. The team also won the 2022 WNBA championship. The video is also showing other players during league play shooting and hooping throughout the clip. Leray is also speaking about what’s coming up for the summer.
“Yeah, this league is a sisterhood. It’s way more than just a game; it’s an empire. A fearless empire. More side-swiping steals? Check. We got hoops, drive, and passion; easy. More buckets, extra sauce? Order up. More dimension-defying dimes, more dancing than a Saturday night. Now this is what I call primetime! You see that?”
WNBA Champion @_ajawilson22 helps us define More Than Game ‼️
MORE THAN GAME takes what’s already loved about the WNBA and shows that there’s even more. More supernatural. More multidimensional. More practice. More perfect. More primetime.
