Shane Battier believes we will see a woman in the NBA one day
I can actually say I agree with Battier, who would have thought that we would see a woman as dominant as Britney Griner? Standing at 6’8 she wears a mens 17 shoe and weighs about 200 lbs. With Genes like that in my mind there is no doubt we will soon see a woman competing in the NBA. Now leading the league in scoring might be a different conversation…sorry ladies.
“There’s no doubt that in our lifetime, there will be a woman NBA player,” “I don’t know if it’s Griner or if it’s someone who is 5 years old right now,” Battier said. “But we’ll see it. It’ll happen in our lifetime. Just the law of averages.”“I don’t think it would be out of the realm of possibility that [one day] we’ll see a female LeBron,” Battier said. “You could be the most skilled player in the world that the women’s game has ever seen, but that won’t cut it in the NBA. She’d have to be a physical specimen.”
