I have heard this a few times, but I feel like they allow too much bullying and brute force in the NBA... TODAY. And I have always disliked Shaq and don't give a shit what he says. I always hated his style of play. He just pushed guys around because he could and the refs let him. I couldn't stand to watch him and mostly didn't. If you want to see men pushing men around or banging into them watch the NFL. Or boxing or some other martial arts sport, or even wrestling (what a joke, not Greco-Roman) or sumo. I never had a sense that Shaq had skills or finesse, just brute strength. 300+ pounds of get the hell outta my way. It offended me.

Honestly, you should probably stick to watching the WNBA. The game play and flow is more your style. Hopefully it won't offend you as easily.

Remember when they used to show WNBA games on network television? Me neither!
No, they do show WNBA games sometimes. I don't have the details, but I encountered one recently. Well, maybe it was NCAA tournament. Anyway, the woman's game doesn't interest me. Now the women's World Cup that's going on now, that's really amazing!

Go Cameroon but there are no good teams against USA. USA is not even good. Typical North America play.

Cannot comprehend this. But I did see the last minute of the Cameroon game yesterday. They cut to it live in the last minute of injury time just as that girl received a header pass and single handedly weaved through 4 defenders and planted the winning goal in the back of the net. Just fabulous WC moment. Similarly fantastic was the goal scored by Tobin Heath to give the USA a 2 goal lead against Sweden later in the day. That girl is magic on the ball.
