    It's 100% related to athleticism. Futurama and Family Guy both poke fun at the fact that the WNBA the fundamentals of the players is probably way better but watching nothing but layups and mid range shots with very few ankle breakers and no dunks isn't that entertaining.

    Is there anything funnier than chick hurdle height?

    You go up to a men's hurdle and you're like, "damn, this thing is high". You go up to a women's hurdle and think,
    what the fuck is this little thing?".

    Very few memorable women.

    Dawn Staley had legit ball handling skill and was smooth going to the basket and making steals in the passing lanes. Every other womens player -- not so much.

    Jennifer Azzi could really shoot. I saw her workout once in the gym. Sweet jesus, a shooting clinic filling up the bucket.

    It's hard watching an inferior product and no one wants to pay to see it.

    Oooph. Most of those were just layups that they decided to hold a little longer.

    Actually womens bball has a lot of skill. Sometimes they are more fundamentally sound than many NBA players.

    The reason it isn't watched is because they are physically inferior thus it's an inferior product.

    I think Brittany Griner, Lisa Leslie and Candace Parker are the only three women in WNBA history that could even dunk the ball.

    To be honest, I don't follow men's basketball either.

    If you have a niece, or a daughter, or female friend who plays, then you are obligated to watch them.

    But the tranny's are probably going to erase female sports anyway.

    They need to wear shorter skirts, and tank tops that show more midriff.

    Basically why men love watching women's beach volleyball, and Legends football league

    Because Basketball relies heavily on explosive athleticism and agility that females tend to fall far behind the makes passed puberty.

    Its because theyre more attractive. Shit, even women's soccer gets more attention.

    I cant think of a single sport with females where the uglies are repeatedly watchable outside of mma and even then, beauty trumps all.

    Women’s soccer can be lots of fun.

    They play like people.
