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'm sure she could play pick-up games with guys, but the NBA? No way.

Is the NBA draft still 2 rounds? Then he ain't taking Griner in the draft.
Would he bring her in for a "try-out"? Sure, for the publicity.

No way in hell she could actually make the team. No way she's strong or fast enough for the NBA. Only possible role for a female in the NBA is if she was an absolutely dead-on 3-pt shooter they could use her in spot situations where they could get her a wide open shot.

She really can't jump for shit either. I mean, compared to men anyway.

I bet Charles Barkley's old fat ass could still beat her one on one.

Very few 2nd rounders in the NBA turn out to be anything anyways. So there would be very little risk involved.

Even if she fails, Cubans bank account would succeed.

Think of all the publicity that team would get.

Personally, I'd even be interested in watching it.

There's this thing called "The WNBA."
She should go dominate that first before thinking about trying the NBA.

There was a discussion on this board a couple years back asking if Annika Sorenstam or Michelle Wie could compete on the Men's PGA tour. The answer is---absolutely not.

The physical differences in golf between men and women are pretty huge. Imagine the difference between men and women basketball players. It's likely she would perform well in some boys high school games. But against college men? Pros? Please child.
