Cuban says he would draft Brittney Griner. Could she play in the NBA?

Whats says Chiefsplanet.....Can a woman succeed in the NBA?



http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...llas-mavericks



LOS ANGELES -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban would be willing to give Baylor women's star Brittney Griner the opportunity to prove she could play in the NBA.

Cuban said he would consider selecting Griner, a 6-foot-8 three-time All-American and Big 12 player of the year, in the second round of the NBA draft. If the Mavs don't draft her, Cuban said he would have "no problem whatsoever" inviting Griner to try out for a spot on Dallas' summer league team.


If she is the best on the board, I will take her," Cuban said before the Mavs' Tuesday night game against the Los Angeles Lakers. "I've thought about it. I've thought about it already. Would I do it? Right now, I'd lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it. You never know unless you give somebody a chance, and it's not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it."

Griner dominated women's college basketball with her size and athleticism, scoring 3,283 points and blocking 748 shots in her career. She also had 18 dunks, including 11 her senior season.

Griner would love the opportunity. "I would hold my own! Lets do it." she wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night in response to Cuban.

A woman trying out for an NBA team is not unprecedented. Former UCLA star Ann Meyers tried out for the Indiana Pacers in 1979.

Cuban said it's difficult to evaluate whether Griner could play in the NBA because of the caliber of her competition, comparing it to scouting players from small schools. However, Cuban said he was absolutely serious about at least extending an invitation for Griner to try out this summer.

"She'd still have to make the team," Cuban said. "I'm not going to carry her just to carry her. I don't think, anyways. But I certainly wouldn't be opposed to giving her the opportunity."

Cuban acknowledged that Griner playing in the NBA's Las Vegas summer league would have tremendous marketing potential.

"It would, wouldn't it? See how she could do?" Cuban said. "That'd sell out a few games."

I think if someone has talent, they should be allowed to try out, regardless of anything.

She could play with the men, yes. How good would she be in the NBA? I have no idea. She's a great athlete. Great basketball player.

As a business move, its genius.

The publicity, advertising sales, ticket sales, jersey sales.... cash cow.

And all he has to do is let her be on a summer league team.

I don't see the harm in letting her try, but I have no doubt in my mind that she would have zero success. Not big enough to bang with the 4's and 5's, and would look foolish trying to play wing.

But I'm with you. I'm not 100% convinced until I see her naked. In person, outside of the reach of photoshop.

This would be a marketing/publicity stunt. Nothing more, nothing less. Griner would get destroyed by the real men. By all means, let's see this happen.

She as much as shot as I do. She would get destroyed. And set the shim movement back to where only transgenders only play sports in mother Russia.
