Greg Stanton became Phoenix's mayor last November in what was called the "nastiest" and "most contentious mayoral Phoenix has seen in nearly 30 years." As nasty as Stanton might be, he's no match for Nakia Sanford's flying elbows.

Stanton had been lobbying for a roster spot with the Mercury, and he got his chance with a practice yesterday. But Stanton made the mistake of going up for a rebound against Sanford, and came down with a nose fractured in two places.

Stanton seems fine, tweeting out photos of the aftermath. Sanford doesn't see what all the fuss is about: you come in her paint, you better come hard.
