It's weird to us that the idea of being openly gay in professional sports is even a discussion in 2013 — that shizz should have happened YEARS ago!

A lot of debate is going on in the male sports arenas about whether or not players should be open about their sexuality, but in the WNBA it's less of a big deal because the women have been embracing it for a while already! It doesn't matter to them whether or not their teammates are gay, and absolutely they should be open about it!

Here's what No. 1 draft pick in the WNBA (and possibly NBA!), Brittney Griner had to say about it. You know, as an openly gay player:

A women's basketball star in the NBA??

YES PLEASE!!

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:

Barack Obama Shares His NCAA Tournament Predictions!

Filed under: Barack ObamaBasketball

When Barack Obama isn't busy coming up with budgets or running America, he turns into a bracketologist and makes predictions for the NCAA Tournament!!

Our Prez recently met up with ESPN's senior college basketball journalist, Andy Katz to show him his Final Four selections, and in it, he chose the Indiana Hoosiers in the men's division to win the whole enchilada, and he picked Brittney Griner and the Lady Bears of Baylor for the women's bracket.

For the past five years, Obama has shared his bracket predictions with ESPN, and in 2012, two of his guesses were actually RIGHT.

It looks like BObama knows a thing or two about hoops!!

Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) to see Barack's predictions!

Serena Williams & Kevin Durant Win Subway Sportswoman & Sportsman Of The Year

Kevin Durant Serena WIlliams best athlete bet awards

Congrats guys!

One of our favorite athletes, Mz. Serena Williams, just won the Subway Sportswoman of the Year at the 2012 BET Awards. We hope Venus isn't too jealous. Ha!

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant lost the NBA Finals to LeBron James and the Miami Heat, but he took home Sportsman of the Year anyway.

You don't need to win a championship to be considered a winner and these two fantastic role models for every young athlete prove that!

There's No Punching In Basketball!

Filed under: Zportz

Yikes!

After a night of very aggressive play, Baylor's Brittney Griner wasn't going to take those hard fouls any longer!

Watch Griner sock Texas Tech's Jordan Barncastle in the face after she gave her a hard shoulder in the middle of the game!

Not very sportsmanlike, gals! Channel the anger into the game not at each other!
