The WNBA will never be a mainstream sport........it'll always be something that the bull dikes will be drawn to.

I'm not trying to be sexiest, but while there may be a phenom that comes around once in a while it's never going to be enough to change the league from team to team over.......You'll have one badass player and a whole bunch of awesome layup/3pt shooters.

She will definitely make it more popular. Anyone that doesn't agree is being illogical. She's genuinely attractive and will be inarguably one of the best players in the league.

Diana Taurasi had a better college career and didn't do didly squat for the WNBA......I'm not trying to be sexiest or anything, but nobody really gives a crap about women pro sports.....they aren't athletic enough to be entertaining.

I mean the fact that you have to say "She's genuinely attractive" as one of the selling points is sad and it's sad, because it's the truth......guys only really care about looks when it comes to women sports, look at women's tennis........but even Candace Parker doesn't look good enough to make ratings sky rocket for the WNBA.

Maybe just maybe when players like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO-iH...eature=related are common in the WNBA, the WNBA will be relevent and people will actually care about it.

One big problem of the WNBA is the league being hijacked by a bunch of Femine Nazis, insecured homos, and men haters. As long as these hypocrites occupy the arenas, the WNBA will never be a big league sports. I don't care if Candace Parker or even Tony Parker dresses up as Eva Longoria to play, it ain't gonna make any difference.

I do feel bad for most of the WNBA players. There are some pretty good players in their own respective gender. Unfortunately they have to suck up to this kind of crap in order for the league to survive.

Hoping she actually is the LeBron of the WNBA, but I doubt this board would really care. Maybe the occasional thread about her dunking in a game or something.
