For me it would take

1) More teams (they only have what 12 total?) Lol

2) Brittney Griner

3) Dallas team

4) atleast a few hot women


I think it could be entertaining, I watched Juwanna Man and enjoyed it

A lockout that deprives me of the NBA, firstly.

And then a quality of basketball that's a whole lot better than what they're playing now.

I really don't care if it's women or men. I like watching good basketball. But until the WNBA can deliver better basketball than college men do, there's not much point in watching, given a limited time for watching sports.

They gotta get better, that's the bottom line.

I think in certain sports cater better to talented women. In your example tennis, its all about agility, change of direction, a power serve and racket skills. Although men may be more physically capable in most instances its not extremely noticeable on the tennis court. Golf, volleyball, and soccer are other sports where women flourish in and are exciting to watch.

But when you get to sports such as baseball, football, and basketball that at times rely on raw athletic ability women just do not make the cut compared to men. Its not as exciting.

Heater4life
06-02-2011, 12:02 PM

Ill never get the level of hate they get.

I mean.

Womens Tennis has VERY HIGH ratings in Tv, why are other sports so different?

I think part of the reasons women's tennis rates fairly high is because part of the lure of tennis is long, intense rallies. Women generally don't hit their serves as hard as men, which results in longer rallies, thus the higher ratings. (The overall attractiveness of the women doesn't hurt either, but i really think the quality of play has a aspect in it.)

I like the idea of lowering the rims in theory, but in practicality, its not going to work. To do that, you would have to go to every basketball court in America and make sure their hoops are able to be adjusted to different heights. I know in most well off schools, this would be no problem, but in city schools and playgrounds would make it difficult to have different sized hoops.

I think a faster shot clock is an option. It would force the speed of the game to go faster. This would at least force more shots to go up, which either results in alot of dumb shots, or a faster pace of play. If it forces a faster pace of play, it would be more interesting.

Another possibility would be to shrink the floor size too. This could encourage more trapping and pressing, which could result in a faster, more interesting game.

they would NEVER be as athletic or talented as men. so why watch WNBA when there is the NBA?
and if they were attractive i still wouldnt, never saw women (even hot women) doing men things (working on cars, women playing football in underwear) as sexy. its just weird to me.

1. Golden State Franchise
2. Free tickets with purchase of my Warriors season tickets
3. Bay Area ties (Stanford, Cal, State, St. Mary's, Santa Clara, etc...)
4. Former NBA Players as head coaches so there are some recognizable faces, much like the DLeague. Former Women greats as coaches can help too, but lifer head coaches who never played doesn't sell the product.
5. Gorgeous women help, silky uniforms. Form fitting silk jersey with short shorts. Under Armour type uniforms that show off their figures.
6. Olympic Gold Medalists should be part of the league even if they aren't playing. Allow fans access to the greatest women players ever. Miller needs to be part of the league too. (Leslie, Cooper, Swoopes, etc... should be part owners of the teams)

Non Serious:

1) Land Mine the entire court the closer you get to the basket, the more there are.

2) Throw in Trampolines with no sports bras.

3) Allow one guy from the D-League to play each night. (Like watching Billy Madison in gym class)

4) Add a penalty box for personal fouls.

5) Dunks are worth 3, all other shots are worth 2.

6) Allow fighting like in hockey.

Seriously, if I were in charge I would...

1) Lower the rim

2) Challege them to all the local YMCA teams/Frat leagues/any other group of guys who feel they can actually beat them. If they lose they get season tickets, if they get season tickets and chances for pre-game prizes.

3) Promote the b-jesus out of them to the local community. Give almost 100 access so you feel like your watching a "friend" instead of some athletic chick.

But...I barely watch the NBA much less the WNBA.

Tina Thompson is the all-time leader in points, but since we are very superficial with women's sports, it doesn't help that she is not good looking at all.

Only three players in the history of the WNBA averaged over 20 points per game for their careers. Cynthia Cooper and Diane Taurasi are two of the three and while they aren't that good looking, they were certainly talented enough for that not to really be an issue.

Lisa Leslie is a goddess so that helped the league certainly.

Candace Parker certainly turns some heads as well.

The WNBA needs Parker to either become the greatest ever (Miller status) or they need a Michael Jordan type player.

1. They need an scorer like Iverson.
2. They need a girl who can shoot like Bird.
3. They need a girl who can fly

That might never be possible, but if they could ever get a girl who is Lisa Leslie tall and good looking, but has hops, they might be able to bring out the fans.

Also, about 85% of the WBA women are lesbians. I wouldn't watch the NBA if I knew 85% of the dudes were homosexual...so someone needs to fix this.


Lowering the rim makes sense and it would allow more dunks in the game.

I would need a plethra...a PLETHRA of cash, first and foremost. Second, rename the league as the NUWL - No Ugly Women League. All the ugly players can be sent down to the women's D-League equivalent, where they can work on their physical appearance until called upon via 10-day contract. Third, rule changes - allow for harder, Rollerball-style fouls, 4-point line, and the best one: pillow fights during timeouts (which ever side wins gets the ball out of the timeout).

I went to a WNBA Finals game when the Liberty were playing the Sparks (not by choice, trust me). During layup lines, it hit me: how does this league even exist? David Stern knows he's losing money (and sleep) just because he is forced to please everybody by having a women's league.

That being said, I respect the talent of these women, them being the best in the world at what they do. Most men can't say that they are the best at what they do. But at the same time, we aren't boring as ****.
