Im pro womens sports but things are getting a bit out of hand. Brittany Griner thinks she could "hold her own" in the NBA. Im sure this is very unPC but she wouldnt even make a mark in the D-League.
She may have a skill set to do so, but I doubt she would be strong enough. She is roughly 6'8" and 200 pounds, plays center in college. She would be greatly undersized for a center or power forward in the NBA.
Her in the NBA is laughable at best.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Are we sure it's a her? She looks like Marcus camby to me.
Only because I opened this thread can I now say that I know the name of a female bb player. So, I don't know if she can.
What I'd imagine, though, is that if she could hold her own on the NBA then she had better be averaging 50 points and 25 rebounds a game in whatever current league she competes in.
Just for kicks, what's her vertical? Her 40 yard dash?

She would get run off the court in the D League let alone the NBA. This is a bigger joke that D. Robinson beating Usain Bolt in a race.
she would get dunked on so bad human resources would address the issue...
She would get smoked I. Men's D3.....
She could proabably play d3 men's hoops. 6'8" twigs that can barely dunk don't really translate well to men's game. He'll they were complaint about physical UofL was playing her.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
just for shits and giggles id like to see her go to a LA Lakers practice and try to guard D Howard in the low post.
I fear she would literally snap in two.

Good high school teams would beat Baylor. Id bet cash that teams like LBJs high school teams would drop 100 on Baylor. Not knocking womens sports but the media is actually playing this up.
When I was in hs we had a state ranked girls team. The faculty thought that they would draw interest in the girls team by matching them up against our boys freshman team. Lets just say that we had a lot of disappointed girls and that was never tried again.
I know that game. We had a top ranked girls team in high school, I was a decent high school player. In gym class our girls high school league player of the year tried to play me one on one. Wasnt even fair.
They should let her play on the Baylor's Men's team to see if she can even hang in the B12.
A guy like Ravenel won't even be remotely considered as an NBA prospect. You think Griner is better than Ravenel? Would you rather have Griner playing for us than Ravenel? How do you think she'd do against Wisconsin? She would get destroyed. People are insane if they think she'd be able to hold her own in the NBA.
I used to play pickup ball with a 6'7" kid who was an All-American at Mount Vernon Nazarene (division 3) She MIGHT be able to play at the men's D-3 level, but I don't think she'd be a star. She's would be a decent shooter, but she wouldn't have her way around the basket like she does in women's basketball. It's a lot different swatting a 5'7" guard when you're 6'8", as opposed to a 6'2" man who can get above the rim.
Anyone who thinks Griner could make it in th NBA is dumber than anyone who thinks Bama could beat an NFL team.
I used to watch Katie Smith ball it up with guys in Columbus, but they weren't elite. Just guys off the street. She did well, but these guys were not even D1 players. In the NBA it would be a joke. Griner wouldn't get a shot off and it's a good thing she has no tits, they would be thrust back into her sternum. Would be VERY bad for her.
I was thinking the same thing.. Maybe D3, but she would be just average at best.
I bet she has a bigger dick than a lot of NBA players. LOL Her in the NBA is a fuckin joke!
