Amid the could she / couldn’t she talk revolving around whether Brittney Griner could make the NBA, Heat forward, Shane Battier predicts that we will see a female basketball player make the NBA in our lifetime.
According to ESPN:
“There’s no doubt that in our lifetime, there will be a woman NBA player,” Battier told ESPN.com after Thursday’s Heat practice at AmericanAirlines Arena.
“I don’t know if it’s Griner or if it’s someone who is 5 years old right now,” Battier said. “But we’ll see it. It’ll happen in our lifetime. Just the law of averages.”
