The WNBA is not for pansies … just ask the Mayor of Phoenix … who BROKE HIS NOSE IN TWO PLACES during a practice session with the Phoenix Mercury!!!

It all went down just a few hours ago in AZ … when Mayor Greg Stanton was running drills with several Mercury players.

He looked good at first … quick, spry … but things went to hell quickly when Stanton went up for a rebound against Nakia Sanford … and took an elbow to the face … breaking his nose in two places.

Stanton was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released.

The Mayor later issued a statement saying, “Injuries are just part of the game — they”re battle wounds.”
