For whatever reason, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton really wanted to play basketball with the Phoenix Mercury, the two-time WNBA champions. He tried, and based on the 22 seconds of footage here, he didn't do so well.
A few seconds in, you can clearly see that Stanton leaves his assignment, DeWanna Bonner, and he gets stuck under the hoop with several women who are much larger than him.
Stanton then goes up for a rebound, and takes what appears to be a 'bow to the face from Nakia Sanford.
The mayor actually made a video pleading to join the team's practice squad, which he probably thought was a good idea before his face got rearranged.
