Brittany Griner: why is this such a big deal? :hmmm:

(...and for the record, ESPN is on in the background at work and the ability to change channels is above my pay grade.)

No idea, 5'7" Spud Webb could dunk so why is it a big deal when a 6'8" woman can dunk?

Despite her tremendous stature she may barely reach the rim!

Women never dunked before? My god, that's why all their games are 23-19.

She sounds a lot like a man when she talks.

I'm sure the rest of the game was totally worth watching.

She remind me of my uncle who slaughtered cows and came home covered in blood and sweat and never shaved his body hairs!

Listening to her speak, I hope someone has checked her for a cock and balls.

More like, "have you heard that gu- I mean girl talk?"

I wonder if women basketball players even take themselves seriously.

I was reading about the phenomenon this morning. She is the 2nd woman to dunk in a tourney game. The reason is women can't jump and they are shorter than their male coutnerparts. The average woman in the WNBA is 7 inches shorter than the average NBA player. Their verticle jump is much lower as well. The average woman basketball player has a verticle of 19 inches compared to 28 for males. That verticle goes down for larger female players. That means that a woman would have to be 6'6" with a reach of 8'11" to be able to get 6" over the rim to dunk. That's Michael Jordan size, not very common in women. BTW, Jordan had a 48" verticle in his prime.

No way that's a chick. She either has a dick or had it cut off.

Guess we'll find out when she goes pro. They drug test. I think they can figure out if man or woman. Hard to say if she has an adam's apple.

Women also can't play basketball in a way that makes it fun to watch.
