Its pretty impressive for the women's game but when you compare it to the men's, 80% of the players are able to dunk the ball the way she can and its regarded as common place.
If you take a male basketball player who is 6'4" with an ok jumping ability they will be able to shut Griner down. The lower half and core will be stronger, their athletic ability will be able to nullify any height advantage Griner has. Just using a local example, you put a guy like Parker on her, Parker being someone who is a Euro league player at best, he would be able to dominate her on offense and defense.
