If she is the best on the board, I will 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, and it’s not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it.
This quickly set off a bunch of talk about women in the NBA, people saying women shouldn't play, others saying they should if they have the ability, others being straight up mysoginistic..
From my POV, if someone has the talent required to play, they should be given the chance to play.. I know it's not traditional, but the league runs on talent, and nothing else.. If there's a woman who has skills, doesn't lack the size, and could seriously be a rotation player, then I'd have no problem with her getting a chance.. I don't know if there are many, but if the case came up, then I wouldn't have a problem with that.
What's your take?
