There’s been a lot of talk over the past week as to whether Baylor’s Brittney Griner could make it in the NBA. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban even went so far as to say if she were on the board he’d draft her or at the very least extend a summer camp invite to her. Brittney even responded on Twitter saying, “Let’s do it.” Some believe because of her slight frame, standing 6’8 but not even 200 pounds, she’d get bodied in the post going up against the NBA’s bigs. Even if she moved over to the small forward position, she’d still face off against the likes of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony on any given night.
Miami Heat’s Shane Battier feels it’s just a matter of time before a woman infiltrates the NBA court. Could one of the most dominant female basketball players in collegiate history be the one? We’ve seen woman give work to NBA players before. Remember a few years ago, WNBA’s Cappie Poindexter gave Raptors Sebastian Telfair that WORK. Difference being, the guard positions generally isn’t as physical.
In the mean time, enjoy this photoshop photo Griner put on her Instagram account of her dunking on Piston’s Brandon Knight. He just keeps taking L’s this season. ::giggle::
