In an article on SI.com, David Stern told a reporter that he thinks it’s possible that a woman will play in the NBA within the next 10 years. Sports Illustrated asked the commissioner whether we might see a woman playing NBA basketball within the next decade. “I think we might,” said Stern. “I don’t want to get into all kinds of arguments with players and coaches about the likelihood. But I really think it’s a good possibility.”
The article also talks about what kind of media and marketing impact breaking such a barrier would have. It also challenged whether the NBA would be too physical for a female athlete and whether NBA players would respect her or not.
Do you guys think a female could play in the NBA?
