Just curious as to what some of the fine PSD posters think on this subject as I was having a debate on it with some of my friends.

I think they would, my friends dont.

Anthony Parker is far from the worst player in the NBA, yet he would get eaten alive by his sister.

Lisa Leslie, Candice Parker, Diana Tourasi, Becky Hammon, Sue Bird, Lauren Jackson, Tameka Catchings, Swin Cash, Cheryl Ford, Chamika Holdsclaw...

all talented players.. they aren't all slouches.

i dont think so.. there are players in the NBA that just dont have that much basketball skill. Kwame Brown would be so much bigger then anyone but his hands are terrible that wont change being in another league. He would block a lot of shots thats it.

I cant really think of anyone else. But if it comes down to one player there you go.

Kwame is a role player and does a good job of being a big post defender.

the worst NBA player would completely, utterly, dominate the WNBA. Women do not have the size and speed capable of playing basketball as well as men. Its basic science. Send Mark Madsen to the WNBA. 6'10", 250, and somewhat agile. What woman stops him??

for exampls anthony parkers sister probably could beat at least 15 players in the nba 1 on 1 including her brother. and there are girls in the wnba who are better then her even. or as good as her. some guys in the nba are really out of shape and awful to watch. eddy curry comes to mind.

my D3 college team would annihilate the wnba, we have more people on our team that can dunk than there are women in the world who can dunk,, it would be even more dominant if we used the bigger nba ball, it really makes a difference, if you use a womans ball ur shooting percentage goes up at leas 10% bc of its smaller diameter

its not sexist. Men are simply bigger, stronger, faster, and more powerful. And there is nobody in the NBA that doesn't have good basketball skills. Go to pregame, way before, and watch the shootaround. Even the worst players are freakin awesome. The worst player in the NBA would totally dominate women's basketball. Candice Parker wouldn't make the roster of a top 25 college team, let alone an NBA team. It is just not a sport where women can compare unfortunately

11-09-2009, 08:02 PM
Depends.

The only factors are height and strength. If you are a big, you can dominate for sure. For wings and PGs, you need to be at least average.

Crappy big men like Kwame and Darko can probably dominate but it wouldn't be the same if they had to face people their own height.

Hawkeye15
11-09-2009, 08:04 PM
but they wouldn't. thats the point. they would be so much bigger. and the wings in the NBA are 6'7". THere are maybe 2-3 women that tall period, and they are as slow as Sabonis was

no doubt, since 2 of them are 14 and are under 5' 8" and weigh 138 lbs and one them is over 25 and goes 260, but should go 180.

however, if you took the 5 best players from PSD in their prime, I think we could do it. There is a guy on the Boston board that played for Holy Cross, I played for U Mass (but I'm more then 20 years past my prime), I'm sure there are others.

The Broome Community College women's basketball team won the MSAC regular season championship in 2005 and I know its a CC but we absolutely dominated them in our intramural game. Women just cant get physical with men in sports its a fact. :p

With that said I dont think the worst nba player wud "dominate" in the wnba but he wud certaintly be able to have his way with the wnba players(no pun intended)

First of all a lot of those intramural mens teams are garbage. But they did the same thing at my college. And the girls got destroyed by guys that played against them. So the guys always had to tone it down big time.

The worst player in the NBA right now is probably 38 year old Lindsay Hunter. He is listed at 6'2 195 (I bet he is closer to 215). Anyways he looks slow in the NBA but I bet he is in the top teer in speed in the WNBA. Also he is a smallish pg in the NBA. But would definiteley be the strongest player in the WNBA. Lisa Leslie is the best center of all time in the WNBA. She is listed at 6'5 170. Hunter would have at least 25 pounds on her and be way more skilled. He could completeley dominate a player like leslie in the post. And how would a girl like Sue Bird at 5,9 145 guard him? As over the hill as Hunter is I don't think he would have any probablem scoring 50+ on 75% plus fg shooting in the WNBA.

In northern Minnesota we play hockey, The best womens team in the world in 2003 was the U.S.A Olympic team, who played a no-check game against one of our High School hockey teams (which by the way in MN is basically a D-2 team) and beat pretty bad........this being said, a professional male would certainly dominate the WNBA.

back in hs we used to have the boys varsity and girls varsity have a game after the season....we all showed up hungover and a few of our pothead friends were still high and we killed them 158 to 21 in a regulation hs game...i think I had like 36 points and 20 rebounds(Dwightish) our best player put up 58 haha and our worst player had 4 he didn't score the entire season haha

I understand your thought process but unfortunately you are just dead wrong.
There certainly are garbage high school teams out there that would lose to the Mercury but overall the gap between women and men is just enormous athletically. Just think about the fact that a skinny (6'5 170) woman (lisa Leslie) is the best womens center of all time. How would she guard me in the post (6'7 250)? I have a couple inches and 80 pounds on her and I am better athletically in every area. I am used to playing better competition and have much better skills than her. honestly it would be a cake walk to drop 50 on her. All I would have to do is sit under the basket and shoot layups. My High schools starting lineup height average was about 6'4. Everyone got college scholarships. We would average about 4 more inches and probably 50-60 pounds than the mercury. And we would be faster. How could they possible compete? They couldnt beat anyone off the dribble and they wouldn't be able to rebound. Honestly we would win by 80.

I agree completly...im a 6-5 post man....i would probably have trouble guarding you....i couldn't immagine leslie attempting....then even worse we are talking the worst player in the pros...i don't know i think it is jerome james...hes 7-0 270ish i think...i couldn't guard him...this 6-7 dude couldn't guard him..and lisa leslie couldn't in anyway shape or form guard him...jerome james for MVP

The worst NBA player can't shoot, whereas many WNBA player can. I think it's obvious that the WNBA wouldn't be dominated by the worst NBA players, even though male basketball players are, for the most part, superior to female basketball players.

You just really don't understand how good the worst NBA player is. Whoever it is was an absolute monster in D1 or Europe or wherever he came from and would totally and completeley dominate your pick up games that you play in.
As far as shooting goes you have to realize that WNBA players play with a small ball. Smaller ball means more shots go in. But also they would need to get their shots off which they couldnt in the NBA. Every NBA player I have worked out with or watched practice can shoot the ball phenomenally well when they are open in a practice setting. However when they get on the court against equally athletic players the game speeds up and some of them look like they cant shoot. But seriously next time you watch a NBA game pay attention to the average degree of difficulty on NBA shots VS WNBA shots.
