Why do they try to make womens basketball compete on the same level as mens basketball? During the WNBA All star game, Lisa Leslie dunked . This dunk might have been more impressive if the other basketball players didnt clear out of the way and let her dunk in a vain attempt to bolster the womens game. Womens basketball should stop trying to make their game resemble the mens game .Women cant do the things that men can do athletically,so they should just concentrate on their skills and fundamentals -- which are the strengths of the womens game. Trying to compete with the men only hurts their game.
