Mark Cuban just said he would consider drafting Brittney Griner in the 2nd round of the NBA draft.
He did qualify it by saying if she was the best player left on the board. I am curious to know how he would determine that since she hasn’t played against the same opponents as the other players.
I would be very excited to see this happen. I have always been a propnent of equality. Having a daughter now even more so. Women in the major pro sports seems to be a natural progression.
You can argue that on average men and women have physical differences that may keep them from keeping on the same level. First off I don’t agree with that and also we aren’t talking about typical men or women. We are talking about pro athletes. They are already separated from the pack.
I am sure many will call this a publicity stunt, even more so if she is drafted. I like to think he is being honest.
If there is one guy out there not afriad to buck the system it is Cuban.
Card wise it would be awesome. I would love a Totally Certified base rookie of the first female NBA player!
