Women in the NBA?Stern thinks so

42 posts in this topic

Isn't it a slap in the WNBA's face if one of their players basically says that the league isn't competitive enough for them?

Also, if there's never any dominant players in that league then the level of play would never really improve.

f**king moron.

hahhahahahahahahahahahahaha

I am thinking the best 5 women in the WNBA would lose to the best 5 women in men's college ball.

the point is...if they want their own leagues....WNBA, LPGA etc etc etc...and specifically say that men can not compete in them, then stay the hell out of the NBA and the PGA etc. If they want access to them, then give men access to theirs...you want equality...then make it equal across the boards!

This is why women should only breed, cook, and do menial labor.

Of course it is. They fought hard to get the WNBA, now they want to cross over to the NBA?

I doubt any women want to cross over. It would be a debacle.

Golf would be much easier although still difficult. In golf, hitting it 330 is an advantage but not necessary to win. The fact that Tom Watson nearly won the open shows that touch and form can overcome strength to some extent.

Not in the NBA, not even close.

I don't remember hearing any woman say she wants to play in the NBA, the question was posed to the commish.

The great thing about pro sports is that it is about as close as we can get to a situation where, regardless of superficial traits, if you can do the job at the highest level, you play....and get paid.

If a woman proves she can hack it, and wants the job, it would be foolish for an NBA team NOT to put her on the roster, and equally foolish for the commish to rule it out out of hand.

The question is....CAN a woman hack it?

Dunno. It is a different game. No above the rim stuff. Movement. Pick and roll. Shot selection. Less physicality/back to the rim stuff.

At first blush it doesn't seem likely, but some superfast superstrong deadeyed beast may prove us "experts" wrong.

Remember when the international player was a joke?

Look at an NBA roster these days......

sure...just like women that want to be cops and firemen etc. All of a sudden the entry standards get lowered and they throw out quotas etc. Best person for the job, sure, but let's make sure we measure them all on the same playing field.

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
