Default Re: Lowering the Rim Heights

I don't know where u live but if something like this happened it could be viewed as "sexist"

I don't necessarily agree or disagree but from the feminists I've spoken to they want women to be treated as equals to men. And lowering the rim could be interpretated as demeaning or that women are not as strong or as skilled to be able to play on the same court dimensions as men.

With that said, it would make sense to lower rims because the height on average in WNBA is smaller than that of the NBA players'.

Conversely they should raise rims in the NBA....
