Gotta hand it to Dallas Mavs owner Mark Cuban - he does not shy away from speaking his mind in front of the media. Baylor’s Brittney Griner is a very gifted Athlete and she has a bright future ahead of her whether she plays in the WNBA and/or internationally.
Mark Cuban does bring up a very good topic for debate among basketball fans: Could Brittney Griner hold her own in the NBA? While most may say no with the only reason that she is a woman that would be playing in a very physical league like the NBA, it’s not like it’s the NFL where brutal hits happen. I think it would be possible based on her size. She 6’8” and with a frame that would be perfect for a large shooting guard or small forward. Although her game is mainly in the paint from what I’ve seen in the games I’ve watched the past couple of years, it could be possible that with some outside shooting help she could add being a spot up shooter to her already impressive skill set.
I say draft her Mark Cuban! Low risk while being a trailblazer for giving women the opportunity to play in the NBA.
