Ok so, I was on mediatakeout.com yesterday, and there was a post saying that one of my really good friends in the league looks like a man on the court. Now I'm not even gonna complain about the fact that male athletes rarely get judged negatively based on their physical appearance (even though its true). I realize that, fair or not, we as women are held to a different standard in terms of appearance; and I'm ok with that. I will however argue that many of us are at least as attractive, if not more attractive, than your average woman.
Lets say you were walking down the street and selected 10 women at random. Take their make-up off, put their hair up, dress them in a baggy, unflattering uniform, and make them sweat for two hours. Then see how hot they look. My guess is that you'll have a couple cute ones, some relatively average ones, and probably one or two that are flat out unattractive. Of course they are gonna look better when they are all "put together". And the same can be said for us female ballers. The only difference is that our job puts us in front of everyone all sweaty and gross, all the time.
Trust me when I say the guys that say WNBA players are ugly or manly are the first ones to try and holla when they see us dressed up and out in the club. So that said, here is a picture tribute to just a few of the hot women in the WNBA. Jen Lacy, Atlanta Dream Kristin Mann, Washinton Mystics Shyra Ely, Chicago Sky Erin Beuscher, San Antonio, Silver Stars
Ashley Robinson, Seattle Storm
Janel Burse, Seattle Storm And me of course! LOL. Chantelle Anderson, Atlanta Dream (These are JUST A FEW of the beautiful women in the WNBA, but y'all get the point)
