That's a big basketball!

Wow. She's dominating in the sport of high-school Tree Hockey, what with being 6'8" and a shoe you could hide a platoon in.

Let's hope she's the female Yao Ming, because otherwise she's doomed to freakdom.

FTFA: The question is, is Brittney a man if Brittney keeps growing at this rate, could she one day be the first female to have a legitimate shot at playing in the NBA instead of the WNBA?

I LOL'd
 
2009-01-14 04:45:44 AM  
She may be growing like a tree, but she's ugly as a stump.

TFA: Brittney has actually outscored the opposing team in more than half of Nimitz's games this season, ...

I LOL'ed.

Dear god, I hope her b-ball career works out because she certainly ain't gonna make it as a super model. Yikes.

But I want pictures!

I also didn't know that basketballs had genders.

So she averages 27 points and is outscoring the other TEAM!?

I'd say she's dominating mainly because she plays in a shiat league.

Brit's looking a little...er...well...

Oh, screw it. She's a MAN, baby! I can only hope that she'll violate Dick Vitale at some point.

I'm skeptical about the dunking claim. How does a basketball that big go through the hoop?

Tough to dribble those male basketballs.
 
2009-01-14 09:27:22 AM  
She looks like John Starks...

but tall.
 
2009-01-14 09:30:33 AM  
Watching the YouTube video, she's amazingly non-awkward for a girl her size. I'm betting she has SOME sort of disorder which makes her the way she is.

Probably not a pituitary disorder, since they would have caught that by now and she's not out of proportion. Maybe something that simply creates some male characterstics, in this case probably muscle mass and height. I remember some female Olympians this past year failed a "sex test" since they apparently were not female enough to win, for whatever reason.

It does not look female. To be fair, it doesn't look male either.

And who cares? She will be stuck in the WNBA until it folds.
 
2009-01-14 10:47:30 AM  
I would totally go spelunking in her twat.
 
2009-01-14 10:47:36 AM  
wow, if she is 6-8 how tall is the man behind her?

The hospital I worked at in college had a regular patient that was female 6'2" and 12 years old. The reason she was in the hospital often was because her bone density could not support her large frame so she injured herself easily.

It was odd to see a 12-year old that was as tall as I. Her mom was 6'5".

My bet is that its genetic, but TFA doesn't mention her parents.

DoBeDoBeDo: So she averages 27 points and is outscoring the other TEAM!?


One of the reasons I don't watch women's basketball. Scores like 96-25 are not uncommon.

My sister's high school team beat seven opponents by more than 100 points her senior year. Of course, she's 5'10" and was the starting point guard, so the whole height thing *may* have had something to do with it. That, and the fact that her coach was a dick; one game in particular, the score was 84-4 in the 3rd quarter and some of the starters were still playing.

Once a person is a certain height with a long wingspan...dunking is not that impressive.

Dunking in itself is not that impressive. I don't think he meant fancy/difficult dunks. I beleive he is referring to "James Worthy type" dunks

Picking on a 17 year old girl for her looks is awesome.
