Grant Talks Women’s Hoops on Players’ Tribune
Not a whole went well for the New York Knicks this season, as New York missed the playoffs yet again.
NY finished the year at 32-50 and questions have surfaced about Phil Jackson's capabilities as an executive, the head coaching situation, Carmelo Anthony's future and more.
One bright spot was the play of Jerian Grant, the rookie point guard from Notre Dame.
And this week, Grant penned a thoughtful and insightful piece in the Players' Tribune.
Grant talked about the misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding women's basketball. He also talked about his relationships with the women's team at Notre Dame and how those players were bigger stars on campus than the men.
He also echoed a sentiment that I've always felt to be true: The women's game is more fundamentally sound than the men's game. The passing is smarter, the free throw shooting is generally better. Just because the game isn't played above the rim, doesn't make it "boring."
Kudos to Grant on this piece.
