I have to start by saying YES I am a real girl on PSD and YES I LOVE basketball.
I have had guys here on PSD who calls me fake and who say there are no real females on PSD. I have to say I am a bit disappointed by that. It made me start wondering if I am weird for loving the sport. I have to admit I don't come across many females talking about BB. However, I am always encouraged by female celebrities who attend games since it makes me feel it is ok to like the sport.
So is it wrong to be a female who love bb? Would you be ok if your wife/girlfriend was a bb fanatic? Be honest

Well Mzgrizz (my fellow grizz fan) is active here on psd. I really enjoy her posts in the grizz forum.


But back to your question, No I don't think its weird for females to like basketball. However there is usually a stereotype of what kind of girls have sports knowledge. As for me, I wouldn't mind a girlfriend who has some fundamental knowledge about sports in general, but I do think if she knew as much as me or more, it might be a turnoff for me personally

Chicks who dig hoops are sexy as hell in my book. Similar to accents, the ability to talk hoops can turn a 6 into an 8 and a 7 to a 9.

I feel like if you're a girl you're currently single and you're on PSD striving to get attention from men? I don't think all women who like sports are fishing for attention from men; to be clear this thread just screams that to me.

No, I don't think there's anything wrong with a girl who loves hoops. Seems like a lot of girls on the west coast enjoy it. Around me, most of the women like hockey and baseball, and it's very unattractive to me. My girl will watch basketball with me, but she's not actually a fan.

It is weird. I know chicks in LA who are HUGE Laker fans. I know chicks in AZ that bleed Wildcat basketball. Out here all the chicks just pretend to be Yankee fans.

I might have said something, and I was COMPLETELY joking. There have been, and still are, great female posters here on PSD. My wife loves basketball, and it's awesome. We watch every game together, and just went to see another game in person with friends yesterday. We play basketball trivia on long car rides and have a huge collection of NBA stuff we have all gotten together. You are awesome for liking basketball, and are an even better catch for a dude who shares your passion. Chin up, you are cool. Sorry if my joke came off as offensive, it wasn't meant to be.

Your comments are dead wrong and extremely judgmental. First, I am engaged and about to get married to someone who love the game as much as I do. So I am definitely not single. Secondly, I am very far from someone who like to seek attention. That has never been me and never will be. You can't judge someone based on a single post

Some macho dudes will totally dismiss a female's opinion if he views the topic to be a "manly" topic. As I stated, I love it, but some guys are just animals. True story.

As I said to another poster, I am far from being an attention seeker. Just wanted to hear from my fellow PSD fans since I have been told over and over that I can't be female since there are no real females here.

I cant believe this is actually a thread.....

You said your engaged so I am assuming your an adult; this sounds like something a 13 yr old would be asking ... Whether it is the case or not it sounds like your begging for attention here.

You really are asking if it is okay for a woman to love basketball ? Like I can't believe the ignorance of this question. People can like/dislike, love/hate, whatever the hell they want, and if people don't agree with it then who gives a ****.

Why would somebody dislike it if their wife or girlfriend or friend who's a girl like basketball? Why would it be wrong? It's not.

It's just that men are predominantly the ones who view most professional sports, basketball included, so most guys automatically make the assumption that a female doesn't like sports, or, at the very least, doesn't like male dominated sports.

I think I speak for most basketball fans when I say I would be ecstatic if my gf or wife was as crazy about basketball as most of us on PSD are. Female basketball fans are all good, I don't get what the big deal is? If this is even a real issue?

Anything to do with anything on the internet should not be taken too serious. People love to troll anyone because they can. Just love and enjoy what you want. Of you want to talk about it here then do so. Just know that there will be people who don't believe you or care what you have to say. Just look past that. Some of us enjoy talking bball.

It's not attention seeking, it's approval seeking. If you're old enough to be engaged, then you knew exactly what reaction you were going to get (especially on a sports forum, ffs!). If you went to a forum about cars, and said "is it wrong to be a girl and like loves cars", or a video game forum and said "is it wrong to be a girl who loves video games", you'd get the same reactions.

It's just like when a really good looking girl posts a picture of herself and asks if she's ugly.

Look, we all need a little positive reinforcement know and then, just try to be a little more subtle when you go fishing.

My manhood is fully secure so I am not threatened by Woman who love sports. I like it a lot actually. It is a lot of fun to go to bars or games, take shots, and just enjoy your time.

Would you guys prefer that nagging chic who gives you crap for watching sports cause it takes attention away from them?

Truth. Anyone can like basketball.. It's almost as if these Internet "girls" get a rise out of constant reiteration of calling themselves a girl and the positive response it evokes from some guys on here (no offense)

Not weird at all. I know plenty of girls who are big basketball fans. Some very hot ones too.

Maybe they don't over analyze and don't look at PER and Win Shares and PER 36 of players etc but they still watch and have a very good basic understanding of basketball.

To echo what everybody else is saying in here. It's obviously okay and preferred that my girl likes basketball (although it would slightly bug me if she liked it more than me seeing as how obsessive I can be sometimes). It's just not the "norm" so people feel threatened by it.

Some of you guys are being immature.. Its a legit question, I don't think the OP was referring directly to herself (although she was obviously including herself) in this discussion but was more of a question about all women in general liking basketball and if it was considered acceptable. There is a wide variety of answers here, I think most have very strong opinions whether it is no, or yes because they think its "sexy" for some reason..

I do think the judgment comments need to stop as I doubt anyone here actually knows the op personally..

My opinion on the matter is it is definitely acceptable. I love women because they give a completely different input on things then men do.

But there hasn't been all positive responses, people right away are saying **** like attention whore, we need pics, etc.

Look at how immature all the guys are being. The problem isn't girls on the internet on sports forums, it's the idiocy of the dudes around them. Same thing goes with girls who like videogames. God forbid a girl plays online multiplayer anything, all they'll ever hear is "**** OR GTFO". I can see why OP made the thread.

It's perfectly fine. It's just that most of the time when I talk to a girl IRL who follows basketball and I bring up things like the MLE, Free Agency, and the luxury tax they have no ****ing clue what I'm talking about... To be fair this happens a lot with guys as well, but at least there's a select few that understand the game from multiple aspects that I can have an actual conversation with. It just catches people by surprise when a girl knows her ****.

Except, no, it isn't a legit question. And, if it were a legit question, the NBA section of a sports forum wouldn't be the effing place to ask it. Clearly, we're all going to like the the idea of a chick that loves basketball. The reason for the negative responses was the silly nature of the question, not the fact that any dude here isn't cool with a girl being into basketball. Again, anyone with an IQ over 65 and any semblance of an understanding of the world would know that male basketball fans love the idea of a girl who likes the game. This thread was phenomenally silly from the jump.

Wide variety of answers!! What? The only people that have said it's not okay were CLEARLY joking.

This is so spurious. Again, the negative reaction has nothing to do with her liking basketball! It's about her basically starting a thread called, "I'm a girl and I like basketball, everyone tell me how awesome I am" (incidentally, it is really cool that you're a girl and you like basketball, I wish I could get my girlfriend to like any sports).

The video game analogy doesn't make sense either. People are jerks over the internet. That has nothing to do with guys disapproving of girls liking basketball. I can't believe people are actually debating the validity of this thread.
