  • Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he'd draft Baylor Bears player Brittney Griner
Brittney Griner #42 of the Baylor Bears blocks a shot attempt in the seocnd half by Kayla McBride #23 of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish during the National Final game of the 2012 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship at Pepsi Center on April 3, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.

Brittney Griner is one of the best women's college basketball players ever. But is she good enough for the NBA?

At least one NBA owner says, yes!

Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban says that not only would he give her a try-out he'd draft Griner if he felt she was the best player available in the NBA draft.

At 6-foot-8, Griner has the height to play against the men in the NBA, but at 210 pounds, she may be a little too light. 

We want to know if you think a woman should be drafted into the NBA. Sound off in the comments below!
