She can't grip the ball. When Lisa Leslie and Michelle Snow dunk, they do the same thing, tiny hands.
Buy the way, I'll put her on my team anyday!!
Me too, but Michelle Snow dunks with 2 hands and hangs on the rim, leaves no question about it. And Candace can palm the ball, she even does the MJ stand there and stare at the defender while palming the ball and holding it behind herself move. Candace gets a better dunk in this video, first time I'd seen it off of 2 feet
A female player could probably contribute in an odd game, but would not be able to cope withthe 82 game season the day in day out physical comp would be too much for them, without some type of dispensation like the team with the female players gets a 15 point head start.
The most versatile player I've ever seen in women's basketball.
She also is 6ft5.
I have no stats to back me up because I doubt anyone cares enough to cover women's basketball stats.
But the WNBA is maybe 2 more bad years away from folding and she has been compared to be the female version of LeBron James.But if she could somehow make a team then it might open up the flood gates among other women's basketball players.
The only other female who I think is capable right now is Seimone Augustus because I believe she is 95% man anyways
Um, no way in hell. Candace Parker would get dominated in the NBA. There's alot of Steve Francis messages on the board about how he sucks ass (and he does), but does anybody on the board actually think Candace Parker could D up or score on Stevie? No way. And the "open up the flood gates" comment is easily the most comical I've heard in years.
On a side note, Ms. Parker can dribble my balls any day of the week.
i remember about 5 yrs ago prime Venus Williams said she could easily play men's tennis.
so the 300th ranked man in the world challenged her and beat her 6-0.
It was actually 6-1, but he had already played some golf and drank some beers that day. From Wikipedia:
Also at the Australian Open that year, the Williams sisters boasted that they could beat a man ranked past 200 in the world. As it happened, German Karsten Braasch (then ranked 203) was in attendance and took them up on the offer. He beat Serena and Venus back to back by the score of 6-1 and 6-2. Braasch noted that the morning of the "matches", he had played a round of golf and consumed several beers. Afterwards the sisters revised their statement and stated they could beat men ranked past 350 in the world. Ironically, due to the expiring nature of ATP points, Braasch was slated to lose a significant number of points in the following few weeks and would drop below 350.
