  1. serious question: would yall rather

    A) have your local WNBA team win a championship

    B) find $5 on the ground

    1. ahhhhh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ *DEAD* πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

  2. You know the NBA doesn’t care because they didn’t even add how many points does she have total

    1. Eli McCoy no like 7.5 k but they have shorter seasons and shorter careers they have to enter at 22 after college and the season is only 34 games to the NBAs 82

    2. NickKoolKat Kareem is the all time scorer at 38k he entered the league at 22. Even if you cut that in half it would still be almost triple this person. Kareem played 1590 games Diana played 375. Even if you divide Kareem’s total points by 4 (the about ratio of their games) Kareem still would have scored 2,000 more points.

  3. Why is there so much hate!? Seriously, this is a big accomplishment for someone and y’all are just downplaying it by being sexist pigs. As a guy, it’s great to see the WNBA get the spotlight.

    1. Khalid Ahmed There is a reason the NBA has to over promote and throw wasted money at the WNBA. Nobody Cares about it.

    2. 4 Star Productions You have so much hate for something you don’t care about. Yeah I watch both NBA and WNBA and the NBA is more entertaining, but if you don’t care about it, why are you in your feelings?

    1. Caleb Pagan season is only 34 games. And they have to be at least 22 to enter the league. That’s why they usually get drafted after four years of college. Whereas the best NBA players used to be able to leave directly after high school and now one and done. If the WNBA was 82 games per season and this was her 15th season, she’d have about 22.000 points with her current career ppg average. She’d have around 28,000 if she didn’t go to college. Just shows how the length of the season and differing rules affect everything.

    2. Mikhael Lockhart How do you know she would be durable enough to play that many games or minutes though? If she played as much as NBA players she wouldn’t be able to consistently score as much.

  4. They did like 4 replays of a wide open layupπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ»

    1. gabthang8 I know it’s not the NBA HoF. However, I don’t know how one can justify a 7.5k career scorer getting into the HoF. The only thing she has going for her is 5-6 all stars. Let me ask you this: if an NBA player only played 375 games scored 7.5k points and had 6 all stars do you think they would make the HoF. Well, the answer is no. To me this sounds like lowering the bar because they are women which is pretty sexist. Everyone should be judged evenly by the weight of their accolades and career stats/totals. The only problem with equal judgment is that either no WNBA player would ever make the HoF or like 35% of NBA would make the NBA. Also don’t use that well they only play 35 games. There is a reason for that, the WNBA is not as good and doesn’t bring in nearly as much money and therefore.

    2. LA 4L42 I don’t feel attacked it’s just stupid when people use the excuse oh well they only play thirty games and they can only enter the league at 22 and stuff like that

  5. Guys, stop being sexist. I bet your moms won’t even like it what you are saying to them. Are you guys laughing at them because of their gender? There’s many good women basketball players out there.
