I remember posting an article last summer or something about Anthony Parker saying in an interview with an Israeli sports site that he will retire from basketball when his sister is able to beat him 1on1.

in an interview with one of Israel's leading newspapers, Candace expressed her feelings about Israel and maybe one day even playing there (in the Women's league). in her near future, 10 years from now she will beat AP in 1on1. her reasoning is that she will be 32, and he will basically be an old man.

I tried to translate the important parts. I wasnt 100% sure if I should put this in the OT thread, but it is on topic even though its not quite deserving of another thread. Bob, if you want you can merge it with the old thread if you can find it :D

and.... oh yeah, she also pointed out that she dunked 1st, before her brother did

Even when Anthony get older, he'll keep himself in great shape.....I don't think she'll ever be able to beat him.

Wow that's quite the statement she said.......I think that will only modivate Anthony....Girls just don't have the speed or the physicality to take on guys....that is, the best girl in the world wouldn't make the nba...not even close....no offence......But i would like to watch them play when the time roles around...for sure

I dont think it was meant as a big insult to Anthony I just think it was a sister razzin her bro, from the sounds of it they have a really good relationship.

I believe it. Candace Parker is one of the most dominant rookies in basketball history. She can only get better while Anthony Parker will only get older. I'd say it's realistic in 5 years for her to beat him.

She could crush a mans skull with one hand.

i just think it is stupid to think a girl wnba player will beat her brother in 5 years, and he plays in the LEAGUE the absolute highest level of basketball. did i mention she prolly plays in the worst league ever created.
