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."

she would get straight up owned by bench players in the NBA. It's a smart publicity stunt by Cuban and she should at least get a chance I guess. But there's no way.

I agree, but...When you go from college to the pros what do we always hear them say? They get bigger, faster and stronger. She will not.

The guys in the NBA would dominate her, push her around and physically man handle her. Once they realize, especially if she made a play on somebody, that she was trying to take their money or a roster spot, these guys would show no mercy.

It would be embarrassing.

Jesus Christ, no. This is ridiculous.

She wouldn't even start on a DI team.

Cheryl Miller was the greatest female basketball player ever and she never once beat her brother in one on one once he was 13.

She's not quick enough or explosive enough.

No only no, but **** no. The NBA is full of the 400 most elite athletes in the world.

Griner is a freak for being a female. She's not shit compared to the last guy off any NBA bench.

She's 6'-8", 208. She played center in college. She's obviously not going to play center or power forward in the NBA, because she's too small for those positions. Physically, in terms of height and weight, she would probably have to match up with small forwards. But even the small forwards would still outweigh her by 30lbs, yet they would blow by her off the dribble with complete ease. She would also get beat to death on the offensive end and rebounding the ball.
