well think of it this way.

3 decemebr it was the 20th aniversary of the tragic death of fernando martin.


who happens to be this guy?

the first euro ever to play in the nba WITHOUT having been to NCAA

that was in 1986, common feeling o fans and coaches was that euros sucked and if they didnt get the higer learnigns from ncaa they were worth nothing and that no euro ot formed in america did have any kind of place in the nba.

Fernando failed in portland because his coach was largely biased against him as a matter of fact he also had petrovic the following year and was making him grow frogs on his *** by sittig on the bench and woudl have killed hsi career if he wasnt lucky enough to be traded to nets.

but he was traded to the nets and blossomed.

20 years laters we have euro players being all stars, regular season mvps finals mvps.


so , women? definetly not at sg, sf, pf or c

but some extreme high iq extreme high shootig percentage, reasonably quick PG?

why not?

Manon Rheaume

for those who have never heard of manon, ill tell you somthing interesting about her.
she was the first every NHL female hockey player!

hockey is a full contact sport, ruffer then the NBA, obviously and if a female is tuff enough out there to play with men in the pro's I really beleive there is a female capable of hanging with nba players as well.

dont be naive gentlemen, remember there is a girl out there who can kick yourass, theres a girl out there who can out shoot you, dunk on you, cross you, no matter how good you are at somthing theres somone out there who is better then you, and guess what that someone can be a girl. woman can go in the military and fight for your country, then they can do anything.

im actually suprised, most psd posters (on a good day) have shown good character and intellect in they're posts, why all of sudden turn in to a 10 year old when asked if woman can play pro ball ?? cmon guys dont be so closed minded.

I applaud Stern for being a progressive thinker. Women will make it into the NBA and may fit in well enough to see some serious playing time. The game has changed drastically over the past few generations in terms of limiting physical play. Athletes have responded by coming in faster and stronger to take every advantage possible. As the 3pt line has backed up, there has always been a need for a ranged player. While I can't picture women playing at the 5 spot, I can picture women of various sizes playing 1-4 to varying degrees of success.

Really? There is a women who can swim distances in cold water over distances that crush what any man has ever done.

Then there is the whole having a baby thing, that's pretty athletic, think they got the boys on that one.

I'd rather cooperate with the opposite sex, then beat it, you know?


One thing about women's basketball (college not that pro vomit) is that in the top 20 programs, women being less dominating physically actually play the game in a more team like fashion. You know passing, give and go, etc. from a purist standpoint they blow most of the idiots in the NBA away. I learned about ball from the Celts of the 60's, 70's, and 80's, and some strict coaches that bought into that 100%. There was no 3 pointer, and dunks got you a technical when I was in HS. Much better then the 3 in grade school or High School of today. For one thing, that's why there are so few great low post players. You got idiots like Sheed playing 24' from the basket, and dweebs like Durant that gets 31 points, 5 rebounds, and no defensive stops a night.

wich means the BEST female woudl of course nto be an allstar in nba nor a starter probably.

have you seen how ugly most girls in the wnba are???

but back to the question. yes and no. i cant see a gm being serious enough to do it unless its for publicity not for skill. the nba game is to physical and girls aret athletic enough. plus there would have to be a pregnancy termination clause different lockerrooms, all this other bs. it was nice for stern to b publicly correct but it wasnt realistic. inversely lebron is talking a lot lately and is making himself look worse and worse. maybe he should limit his responses to the media

This is going to sound sexiest but oh well. The simple fact of the matter is that men are more physical and athletic then woman. Mens bodies are just built differently. The examples of a woman beating a man are all the same you take a top woman and put them against not a top man and she wins..... well hurrah. Billie jean king beats a nobody, i wanna see a woman beat Federer.

Problem is that NBA is the top talent level of men for that particualr sport. NO woman is going to be able to compete in the paint and no woman can compete physically with Men over a season.

It reminds me of a woman goalie who tried to play in the NHL. I think she played one preseason game and got lit up and never played again. She was supposely so great, and she couldnt hack it. Same thing for the NBA its not going to happen.

I don't see how. Where would the distinction be? There is a WNBA and and NBA. W for womans and it goes without saying NBA is for men. Would there be a case then for a man to play in the WNBA?

The only roster spot I feel a woman could ever be capable of playing would be an off the bench knock down shooter, or maybe a PG as someone mentioned. I could see a woman playing the role of a Steve Kerr maybe. But why? It should stay the way it is...that is woman play in the WNBA.

Hell NO.. it's not a matter of women been in NBA. It's more like I don't want to see Women in the NBA. Nothing sexist.. There's a reason why the WNBA was created. I'm sure there are women in the world that could handle it.. but allowing women to play in the NBA.. it won't be the same anymore! All those hard fouls, body-ing up, physically dominating an opponent. It's still different when you play against a woman.. you can't be as physical or aggressive unless u have no conscience or that's how u were raised.

To answer the question NO, absolutly not.

I remember the first woman ref in the NBA sued Rodman and had him find for patting her on the *** saying good call. It's nasty but the men do it all the time and sexuality doesn't come into it.

If a woman was guarding you, boxing you out or vis-versa, wouldn't it be good defence, ala Dennis Rodman to get in her head and her off her game? Wouldn't touching her punani and stealing the ball or rubbing her titties to get her out of post position or grabbing her @$$ to make her miss a pass or lose attention, i digress, be good defence?? What if she was a real whore, and the wives of the players on her team did not want their husbands around her in such close quarters after the ""train in the changeroom rumors"" get out, would that be grounds for a trade or early retirement???

Best point made all day..... to think of it....NBA, like the NFL and other physical sports are measuring sticks .... and they measure one thing... thats right.... "Manhood"..... putting a woman in the mix is crazy... its like putting pigs in the sea.... yea they can float for a lil but they just gonna drown, especially when theres sharks in the water and stuff.... They can put them in as like decoys so like a really hot babe runs on the court and like tries to do stuff to like kobe or something and see if he will take the bait... maybe air it on like pay per view or cinemax after hours.... I should patten that idea...

12-07-2009, 05:04 PM
no way. they are just not good enough. Who knows how human kind will evolve in say the year 2500 if there is still an NBA then yeah because all the people will be playing on flying saucers and you wont have to be so athletic.

Seriously though...not happening and shouldnt happen, it took how long to even start the WNBA and you can tell watching those games they are not even that good against each other

12-07-2009, 05:26 PM
I don't buy the whole thing about a woman player wouldnt be strong or athletic enough. They're are plenty of players that are slow, unathletic, can't defend anyone etc.... and they stick around based on one skill. A dead eye shooter for example. So you mean to tell me that if you had a chick that could shoot like, say Jason Kapono for example, she couldn't come in just to get you a couple 3's? All they have to do is play zone on the other end. I don't see what the difference is?

wrong because Jason Kapono is still a man and can use his body for positioning... he doesnt just stand there and shoot(kinda does, but doesnt)... plus a girl might be have an accurate shot but everything is going to be slower including the set up and her shot will get punched.... and every player on the opposing team will love to throw her shot to the crowd....

I dont think the shooting would work, too many defenders are faster or strong enough to out match a women shooter in the NBa and shell never get a proper shot off. Plus men shooters in the World are better shooters, they shoot from farther distances and much more precise and accurate. Maybe if u had like a female pg lol.

Yeah and there's a huge penalty for popping a boner. So the dude has a point.
