Sports fans are forever trying to get successful coaches of females to coach men’s teams to “prove” themselves. As if it couldn’t get more condescending, there is usually a call for extraordinary players to join men’s leagues to show their worthiness.
Apparently there was a suggestion that Baylor freshman Brittney Griner could be drafted by the NBA (glad I missed that one). But some website took it seriously enough to look into it and interview USC Coach Michael Cooper and Boston Celtic Shelden Williams about it. They say it won’t happen.
Honestly, even if BG got drafted, you couldn’t get me to watch the NBA. When can we quit comparing women to men? It’s stupid.

Candice Dupree and Kayla Pederson have been added to USA Basketball’s spring training roster.
