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 not big enough to bang with the 4's and 5's, and would look foolish trying to play anywhere on the court...

So I should definitely be given a chance, right?

Ppl that think she can make it against the men have obviously not played against a supposed upper level womens bball team. When I was a freshman in HS we scrimmsged against the #4 ranked varsity girls bball team. Keep in mind we were fr and had TWO freshman teams. I expected them to beat us handily. They didnt. We beat them by 60 and we played the scrubs most of the game. Ever since then ive never had the same view of womens athletics.
You think a woman could slap hit in baseball? Christ....

Oh, probably in the Liberty league or something, but dude. They were keeping track of her dunks. Hell coming out of high school I could dunk. And I'm 5 inches shorter than she is and I probably would have sat the bench at a community college.

Hell, TCU and TTU were some of the NCAA's worst in 2012-13, and I don't think she plays on their team at all.

She has pretty slow feet, doesn't jump very high, and has virtually no power at all. She would have a tough time on almost every D-1 school.

Yes. I'm telling you she wouldn't start on a varsity high school basketball team that is worth a damn. Tyler Self would skunk her in 1 on 1.

Honestly...there is not a single WNBA player that could even walk on at a division 1 men's school

On a somewhat related note:
Female Marines Fail Infantry Officer Course

BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
April 3, 2013 10:28 am

The only two women to participate in the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course (IOC) failed ongoing tests to determine which infantry positions should be available to women, according to the Marine Corps Times:
The women failed the introductory Combat Endurance Test, a punishing test of physical strength and endurance, officials at Marine Corps headquarters said Tuesday. The latest class began March 28 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., with 110 lieutenants participating. Ninety-six men passed the initial endurance test. Twelve men and two women — the only female Marines taking part — failed.
The two women both volunteered to participate in the IOC. Two other women had previously volunteered in September but also failed.

Sometimes, fundamentally, chicks are better shooters than dudes...but you're telling me a chicks team could maneuver against an aggressive full court defense like say VCU? VCU would beat the WNBA all star team by 100 in a half...

...and it's VCU
