Delle Donne recently spoke out about the sexism female athletes face, but she doesnt see the rim alteration as a move that undermines the womens league, instead believing it would raise the profile of the WNBA with better basketball on display.
I think it would bring a whole different aspect to the game and bring viewership as well and show the athleticism of our women, she said.
Lowering the rim in WNBA games from 10 to 8 feet would be a bread-and-circuses approach in a basketball setting and it won't change what chauvinists think...if anything, it'll give them ammunition. The game is fine.
I like Elena Delle Donne but she should know better.
