Dunk is Enough
I concede - no, proclaim: Britney Griner is an immensely talented player. But if I never see another woman dunk a basketball again, it will be too soon. (I felt just the same way when Candace Parker did it.)
I hate the dunk and everything it stands for.
Look, I'm old enough to remember when the men played a tight, beautiful game under the basket. (How old? Well, I remember Bob Cousy. Just the end of his career, but I remember him.) It used to be five men playing as one; now it's four playing for one. It used to be a team, it used to be passing and teamwork and ... well. I hate the NBA's game now. (I've been known to say there's nothing wrong with it that raising the basket two feet wouldn't fix.) I don't like the men's college game much, for that matter. And it's not just the dunk, but the dunk is the symbol.
I don't want to see the women's game go the same way.
