Women playing in the NBA



I know my thoughts will cause some to tighten their sphincters, but discussion is the point of having B.E.

It's true that women, in general, have a smaller build compared to men. It's true that a small percentage of women have a body shape that more resembles a man. It's true that most of the NBA players are of African American decent. Out of all the people on the planet, there are only a select few who can play NBA quality basketball.

I think diversity is a great and a wonderful aspect of nature.

The question I bring forth is why has there not been a woman in the NBA? When it comes to stereotypes about size, didn't Yao show who can be big? There has to be a woman out there who could contribute to a NBA team.

As far as I know, it's not a legal issue. What am I missing?
