A women's basketball star in the NBA??
Mark Cuban, owner of the Mavericks, Shark Tank shark, and all around normal and decent dude (who happens to be filthy f***ing rich), has just said that he'd think about drafting Baylor's Brittney Griner! That would make her the first women's basketball player in the NBA and we think he should TOTALLY do it!
Here's what he said:
“If she is the best on the board, I would take her. I’ve thought about it. I’ve thought about it already. Would I do it? Right now, I’d lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it. You never know unless you give somebody a chance.”
Brittney is 6'8", and AWESOME at basketball. No joke, she won the Naismith Award last season as the best player in the game and might even repeat this season. Even Brittney is down for the draft:
The media attention would be nuts!
We think it's high-time this happened, though, so we'd love to see everyone go through with it! How inspirational would that be??
Good luck Brittney!
