Brittney Griner

Skateboard Clause In WNBA Contract

'I Know What's At Stake'

EXCLUSIVE

Before Brittney Griner signed her fat new contract as the #1 overall pick in the 2013 WNBA draft ... she had to make a promise to her team -- I'LL TONE DOWN MY SKATEBOARDING HABIT.

"I agreed with the Mercury that I would only ride in a controlled environment," Griner tells TMZ ... "No tricks or hill bombing."

Besides being the most dominant female basketball player to come out of college in years, Griner is an avid skater ... who's been riding since she was a little kid. 

"I know what is at stake, so I'll just be cruising. I'll get my adrenaline rush on the court."

Griner -- who's 6'8" and DUNKS -- caused a major uproar during her college career at Baylor when she broke her wrist while riding in a parking structure.

"Before that, I had never been injured," Griner said ... explaining, "[I was] going too fast."

"Once my basketball career is over though, I will be building a skate ramp in my yard, that's for sure."

OH NO!    

He looks like a good skater. Maybe he can go to the X-games when his WNBA career is over. Maybe he can have add-a-dic-to-me surgery too.

TMZ there's no such thing as a fat WNBA check. Unless she racks up some endorsement deals she'll have to get a job in the off season to make ends meet.

Why are people bashing her? Seems like a nice girl and the pictures I saw of her face show a girl, obviously lesbian, with a baby face. She seems like a nice kid and she's obviously doing something positive with her life. Good for her.
