bleacher report's followers must be birds of a feather. 1/3 of those who voted on the "would you draft brittany griner" voted yes. yeeowza. i voted no of course and was expecting to see about 5% voting yes. not so much.
women are equal to men in a great many ways, but not in athletics. sorry, but elite female athletes are no match for elite male athletes.
i would place her as a serviceable division 3 mens bball player. anything higher than that and she would get absolutely worked.
Not even sure I would put her that high. I had two buddies who played D3 bball who would make her look stupid as I think most college mens bball players would regarldess of level.
People seem to think that just because she can dunk she is good. Her dunks are horrible if she was a 6'8" guy and her moves are garbage and slow if against a mens bball player. Don't want to come across as sexist but it's the truth, she couldn't compete in mens college or the NBA.
I don't even know if she could play college mens ball at any level. I just think about the high school teams we played and there were 6'5 guys who would shut her down. Think about her dunking. OK, she can do it but it's not all that easy for her when compared to a lot of guards in the college game. That's not even to mention strength. She would get shoved so far out of the paint it's not funny.
FWIW I'm not arguing the NBA point because it's ridiculous. I am arguing the College point because it may actually be some sort of debate.
