Sylvia Fowles Dunks During WNBA All Star Game
This, Ladies And Gentlemen, Is Why The WNBA Sucks
The next time someone implies that a woman could ever play in the NBA, I will refer them to this video. It took a wide-open lane for Sylvia Fowles to throw down a dunk that high school kids all over the country are capable of doing in their sleep. Keep in mind that she did it with a ball that's smaller than regulation NBA basketballs, and she's 6'5". And it took her two tries.
I would venture to guess that there's not a single NBA player 6'5" or taller who can't dunk from a standstill. With both hands. With Sylvia Fowles playing defense. Yet, this is apparently a huge deal in the WNBA, and the announcers felt the need to go nuts about it.
So if you are ever wondering just how pathetic the WNBA is, just take a look at this clip, and realize that this is the very best that they have to offer. Enjoy.
