JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
The more I think about the whole “Brittney Griner could play in the NBA” stuff, the more I get annoyed.
Don’t get me wrong, I love her game and I think she’s a great talent; I’ve covered her ever since her junior year of high school.
But here’s the hard truth: She’d never make an NBA roster purely based on skill and contribution. You catch that “never” part?
Hold on there now women’s rights groups; let’s remember one indisputable fact: She’s not supposed to.
That’s why the WNBA was created, and I love the women’s game. I’m a big time Los Angeles Sparks fan and everything.
OK, maybe more like small time, but that’s not the point.
Trying to elevate her to the men’s game is unfair to who she is as a player and it forces people to appear as if they’re hating on her.
Truth is, the argument is as ridiculous as it is pointless.
Let the woman be the monster she is in the women’s game and let’s cut the chatter about her being able to make the jump to the highest level of basketball on planet earth.
As you were…
WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …
