Phoenix Suns had an excellent response to a sexist twitter troll

Saturday February 7th, 2015

Most of us don't need a Super Bowl ad to know that saying something was done "like a girl" is a cheap and lame sexist comment.

Unfortunately that knowledge has not yet reached some twitter users, one of whom tweeted at the Suns ahead of the team's loss on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers to caution them against not living up to his standards of manliness on the court.

The Suns had no interest in entertaining such foolishness.

The Mercury swept the Chicago Sky in three games last September to win the team's third WNBA title.

Phoenix had a WNBA-best 29-5 record in the regular season, and beat the Sky by an average of 25 points in the first two games of the championship series.

If those aren't enough reasons why playing like a girl is nothing to scoff at, consider this compelling argument from Mercury center Brittney Griner:
