I say yes, but just one forum not the detailed breakdown like the NBA and NCAA have.

Come on, I still find some posts to put on there, for the more noteworthy stories. Women's college basketball is more or less covered in the NCAA section.

Well from seeing most WNBA posts here, it has been more basketball related than some of the ignorant posts about the league. Sure, the players aren't as good. But we accept that with tennis, volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, and soccer, where men are clearly better at the top level. But that doesn't mean that women's sports, in particular basketball aren't exciting or competitive.

Yes, that way I could rant everyday why the (W)NBA doesn't have a lower rim for girls.

Well, sometimes we girls get off on a tagent and start talking about the male players as well.
You guys may do that with the WNBA players as well but there are some guys and girls as well that are interested in discussing the WNBA.

Plus, we have sub-sections for college basketball that don't even have much posts in them anyway; so one sub-section for the WNBA would not be too bad for now.

Well a lower rim would make the WNBA suck more. You'll see dunking I guess, but women's players right now are playing on a 10 foot rim. If the NBA or men's ball was on an 8 foot rim, it would be similar. It would cost way too much to lower the rim anyways since you need new hoops, etc, so let's keep it the way it is.. No one really dunked much in the 60's and much of the '70's for men's basketball before the ABA came in, even though many if not most were able to slam one down.

Unless the rim is lower, there is no such thing as Women's Basketball.

Why are taller players successful in the NBA while the smaller guys have better fundamentals?

Sure in volleyball, the net is lowered for the women, in golf, the fairways are shorter (though the greens are the same, but the court is the same size for tennis, pool's the same length for swimming, and the track is still 400m for athletics. What you're trying to say is that women's basketball is just not as good as men's basketball, or basically, women's basketball doesn't cut it for you.

As with the tall players are better in the NBA, and shorter has fundamentals, that's inaccurate. Fundamentals can be acquired regardless of height. The best hoops players have a combination of size, athleticism (strength and speed), and fundamental skills (shooting, boxing out, etc).

I actually never knew about the golf part, anyway...

I am not saying women's basketball is not interesting. I am saying i am not interested in women playing men's basketball.

And about tall players, yes tall players can have better fundamentals. but if they couldn't dunk or have rebounds, 80% of them could be out of the NBA.
