Women in the NBA?Stern thinks so

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.

fuging moron.

so are you a bull dyke or male pig?

watch this and replace with shea ralph and thats my True story. Shea did all but vag bag me and Ive held my own against college football/baseball/basketball players on a B-ball court. She easily could have had a great day that day, but it seem to be normal for her.

if you have a closed mind dont brother with any of my posts. I will put up $1,000 that I could easily find a woman to destroy you. Ill setup it up and get the local papers/TV, so there will be audience for all to see. It will be for charity. Deal?

plus go back and re-read what a stated(yes the grammar is hard on the eyes). I didnt say the womens team would win. They'd just give the men a game. Maybe not the first 5 games, but one would get close. plus I said it would take a very rare woman, one comes every 200 years. Women have closed the gap and many between events and in the next 500-1,000,000 years they may be equal or even pass in select events. like it or not. modern technology allows women more help. women do what they do without much testosterone. Thats a shot away. bone-wise women have less mass which = less weight. lots of other factors as well that may/may not help given time.

Just like stern and I, others will MUCH more experience feel the same and have a open mind. steve frinkin kerr made a living in NBA and was no more athetic than the common ymcaer. he play around 10 mins and hit jump shots. didnt even have to shower. off to look at NBA rosters
