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

You don't have to be able to palm a ball to dunk. You just need elevation clearly what he's showing is she doesn't have elevation.

She can't grip the ball??

It is a women's ball it's quite a bit smaller then men's ball.

The thing is...she cannot get up on her jumps and every dunk looks like a struggle.

Give me a women's ball and I can windmill it if i practice...heck nvm I can probably windmill if i practiced using a man's ball (but a crappy windmill, very crappy).

Cheryl Miller got drafted to a mens pro league, she supposedly could take Reggie 1 on 1 too, lol.

She scored 105 points in a game

first woman to dunk in a real game

she had it all, she would clown Parker.

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.

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.

you do know that the size/athletism/explosiveness advantage men have over women is far too big to overcome right?

I can picture some JuCO PFs going to WNBA and averaging like 17 boards with 5 blocks a game, even if they suck, just cause they 6'9 with hops and long wingspan.

So to answer your question, no Candance can't play in the NBA. The worse NBA player would be unanimously the best player in the WNBA.

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.[3] 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.

Here is an article/interview from the guy that beat them
