That's too much credit. I would bet that almost all if not all low major men's teams have guys 6'6 plus who come off the bench and are more athletic, stronger, and heavier. She's a couple inches taller that's it. She's a walk on at best.
I agree with you. I was more giving her a ceiling than an actual placement.
Side hypo: What does Spencer Barks average on this year's womens Baylor team?
He's listed at 6'9 225. If that's anywhere close to true then take her stats and multiply by 1.5 at least and that's just because he would play less minutes when his team is up by 30 at half every game. So I'll go with 35/20/8/5 points boards blocks assists. If he plays a full game double her stats at least.
Brittney could make the team and ride bench at a low-level, DIII school but that's only because she's 6'8" and has a 7'4" wingspan. Even at that level she's outmatched in terms of skill and athleticism, IMO. I do think she could get playing time on a fairly good HS men's basketball team (certainly not an elite team like Montrose or DeMatha but maybe a good, competitive team a couple levels below that) but again this would only be due to her height and wingspan.
At least in HS, her skills/athleticism are somewhat comparable to that of an average/slightly above average male HS player so I could definitely see her getting PT when you factor in her size...

Take that shit to Stormfront asshole
But who has better fundamentals???
I don't think it is a terrible idea. It would be good experience for her to get some run with the men, and good publicity for Cuban.
Anyone who thinks she can make the team is an idiot, but that goes without saying.
I never said he was gay, I said that he was a woman. I am not a homophobic person whatsoever, which makes me the exception and not the rule in Cuse's fantasy world.
Detroit Hustles Harder
Cuse once talked to a black person and now he's an expert on the African diaspora.
Is there disagreement that African-Americans have had trouble reconciling their strong history of civil rights on one hand with a frequent uneasiness toward gays felt by the more religious among them?
Prop 8 passed in California largely because of AA and Latino support.
I didn't think that was a particularly controversial area of discussion.

I'm sure you'll find plenty of people who agree with you if you click on the attached link...
Stating that blacks and latinos in left-leaning states are more likely to oppose gay marriage isn't racist gobbledygook, it's substantiated fact. Just look at the gay marriage vote in Maryland - it passed PG county by 1%, despite the fact that PG is heavily heavily democratic.
That fact doesn't make what cuse said less racist though, imo.

Yeah, Prop 8 banning gay marriage in California passed in no small part due to the black vote. In fact, dixonownsyou is even wrong about the latino vote. That's a misconception. Prop 8 was close to a 50-50 breakdown across all other racial groups, but black people voted in favor of it by more than a 2-1 margin.

For what it's worth, exit poll data:
Race Yes on prop 8 No on prop 8
White 49% 51%
Black 70% 30%
Latino 53% 47%
Asian 49% 51%
Other 51% 49%
My mistake on the Latino point, but yeah I thought the black vote was something like 3/4ths in favor.
What I said is nowhere near PackPride-caliber discussion, and it insults your intelligence more than mine to think that it was.
You aren't racist just for pointing out race and the numbers that surround them.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Yeah, I hope you didn't take my comment to be snippy in any way. I just meant that the racial breakdown was even more one-sided than you were suggesting ...
[Also, the PackPride comment made me chuckle because it's entirely unclear to me who those people are more likely to hate between gays/blacks.]
I had conversation with a friend who played for Terps and he said not even D3, I said I think she could make D3 roster. but D3 has improved a lot over the years.
We've been a hypocritical people for a long time, and now we are (mostly) improving our thought processes toward a more enlightened society. Every black family has a "sweet streak" in it, so it has been a long time coming for all of us to recognize it and accept it. It's a slow going endeavor, but eventually all of us will come around to it.
And how does that relate to your own comments in this thread?
I suppose the "hypocritical" part fits, at least.
