Female Dirk. Hope she helps fill the seats for the Sky too. She's a legit baller.

At least for the last week or two after I first heard it.

Excellent pick and I'm glad they took her over Skylar who's a great baller too, but not nearly the ceiling. E2D is perfext next to Fowles too.

Trib
"We haven't seen a player like her come into our league," Tulsa Shock coach Gary Kloppenburg said of Delle Donne. "I guess the comparison is to Lauren Jackson, but in a way she's got a greater skill set than even Lauren with her ability to put the ball on the floor."

That's high praise. Jackson is one of the greatest to ever play: 8-time All-WNBA, 3-time MVP, Top 15 WNBA Player of All-Time.

A franchise savior, basically.

If the Bulls do, you would be complaining to much to ever hear it.

Yup... pretty much this. And this has nothing to do with basketball cause I don't care... I'm talking purely aesthetics.

She is very beautiful, and from all accounts a super legit baller. She's got some real height and athleticism, and plays a bit more of a multifarious game than Griner (not doubt Griner is the top prospect far and away though). In the whole convo about Cuban and Griner and women in the NBA, I've heard a number of analysts say that if it were to occur someday soon it would be someone more like E2D, who has more of a hybrid game and wouldn't have to rely/hope to mix it up or bang inside.

In terms of beauty and body, she's a real athlete. If women were participating in the ancient olympics I'd imagine they'd look a lot like this:

(PS ~ Skylar Diggins is absolutely stunning too. Hope she stays away from Lil Wayne's misogynist ass.)

(PSS ~ While these women are gorgeous, and it's good that they'll be able to bring more attention to women's athletics, I hope ultimately men are able to appreciate what they're actually doing on the court).

Ironically the post right above mine is exactly the ignorant sexism I worry about.

How much money do rookies in the WNBA make? What will the top pick and Elena Delle Donne make, for instance?

^^^ NVM

Wow. I had no idea the salaries were so shockingly low. WNBA average was $72,000 last year with the min being around $38,000 and max contract $105,000. But, I guess these women go overseas in the off season and the best of the them get big money.. $500,000 to $1 million for players like Delle Donne for a single season.
