In February, Brittany was arrested in Russia by police at the airport on charges of possessing drugs. He has been sentenced to 9 years imprisonment.

Russia’s attack on Ukraine has also caught the basketball culture there. Female NBA players who played in Russia during their off-season in the NBA are now moving to other countries instead of Russia. For this, she has to refuse the hefty salary and all the facilities she gets from the basketball clubs of Russia, but still she prefers to play in smaller countries like Hungary and Turkey.

Their salary in these countries is up to 10 times less than in Russia, but still they do not want to go to Russia. A major reason for the change in attitude of female NBA players is the arrest of American women’s basketball player Brittany Griner in Russia.

In February this year, Britney, who was returning home after playing basketball in Russia, was detained at the airport by police on charges of possessing drugs. He has been sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment. Griner has been playing the Basketball League in Russia since 2014.

According to Griner’s teammate Brianna Stewart, she does not want to go there to play until Russia can safely send Griner to America. Similarly, his other two teammates, who play for the Yekterinburg club in Russia, will also not be playing in Russia this year.

Last year half a dozen players went to play
Last year about a dozen female NBA players went to play for Russian clubs, but this year they have distanced themselves from the country. The fear of playing in Russia is not only in American players, but players like Emma Meisemann of Belgium are also turning to other countries.

However, it has not been easy for these players to play in other countries instead of Russia. After playing for a few months in Russia, these players earned an average of three times more than a season in the NBA. Some players were earning even 10 times the money.

Features like luxury lifestyle and free shopping in Russian clubs
Apart from this, in Russia, they used to get luxury lifestyle, free shopping and all other facilities from the club. But now players are leaving all these and playing in other smaller clubs in Italy, Spain, Turkey and Hungary, where salaries and facilities are comparatively less. Young players who are on a foreign tour for the first time also do not want to play in Russia until political stability comes.
