    I don't think it's likely that she has the skills/athleticism to play in the NBA, but I don't see the harm in having her try out or play summer league. How knows, maybe she'll surprise us all and be a serviceable role player.

    I am so happy and would like to share that how Brittney Griner stood no 1 in WNBA Draft 2013. I am so impressed by reading the exact thinking.

    The number 8 pick overall in the recent WNBA draft, Kayla Alexander of Syracuse is from Milton, Ontario. She set all kinds of rebounding and scoring records for the Orange.

    Totally agree, but I'm solely speaking of being able to compete in Summer League. Haha
    I don't think she'd get embarrassed in Summer League.

    But in terms of where/if she'd fit in an actual NBA game, it's tough to say. But if any female player could do it, it'd be her.
    If any female player could ever succeed in the NBA, it'll never be a center or PF. It'll most likely be a guard since good 3-point shooters are always gonna have a career in the NBA.

    From a business prospective, she's an absolute must have! From a winning prospective, she'll be next to useless. She'll make Luke Walton look like Kobe playing 48 mins per game.

    Technically, she could just do it for the money. A second round pick can still make around $600,000 which is already more that what she'll get in 10 years in the WNBA!

    I'd actually be somewhat scared to go up against her. Imagine how much you would get mocked if she scored on you.
