    You can add to that Ann Meyers signed a one-year, $50.000 contract with the Pacers. Ever since then she is the only woman ever to try to earn a spot in the NBA.

    Locker room would be weird...

    And would the husband hang out with the other player's wives?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    She'd need to be careful that Kobe doesn't try and run a backdoor play on her....

    Rabidpacersfan is right. However, the problem with women's basketball as a whole is that the typical female basketball player cannot release a jump shot from over her head due to lack of arm strength. Therefore, a female is typically easier to block. But if you want to see some impressive shooting, watch the Indiana Fever practice at the Finish Line Court through the glass windows at Conseco Fieldhouse. They are really good.

    Or, better yet, go to a game. It's not too hard to get good seats...
