And doing a great job of guarding her, too, considering...

this thread begs for the re-hashing of the Ivana Mandic

She has good positioning. Give her credit for trying no matter how big the opponent is.

Looks like she's boxing out, not guarding.

I've always thought she was kinda hawt. Here's some more photos of Margo, and no, I looked this up -- it wasn't saved in my favorites or anything. I remember reading somewhere that when she was drafted by the Utah Starzz, no one from the organization had actually scouted her in person, and they had her listed as 6-7 or something. When she got off the plane and they saw she was actually 7-2, no one could believe it. Or that could just be bullshit.

Despite her considerable size advantage, Large Marge was IMO never worth spit as a ballplayer until she got with the Sun. Well, okay, she was worth spit last year, but only that. She had the size, but she completely lacked athleticism; all she'd do is stand beneath the basket. She started to move her feet last year, and her game picked up, but she's really improved with the Sun. 'nother thing worth metioning is that Hammon, at 5' 6", is used to playing against people who are taller than her -- and really, from a practical POV, is there a difference between "much taller" and "much MUCH taller"? If Hammon can get around Lisa Leslie, she can get around Margo Dydek.

Poor of my girlfriends is 6'2 and she has a hard time meeting guys. She could really develope though. Her height alone is a freakish advantage over all other players. She's freaken tall for a man!!! Forget comparing her to women! If she can add good, efficient movement she'd be like a T-rex. "RAAAAAHHH!!!! GET OUTTA MY HOOOUUUUUUUUSSSSE!!!!!"

Not the 7 footer. Your friend irish gal.

Not to base taste on type (talk about an inexact science!), but I tend to like my women tall, personally. I've never met a 7-footer (Dydek is, according to this site, the fourth tallest woman alive), but I've certainly dated many women rather taller than me, and if they're cool with it, then I certainly am. Just saying.
