Bill Simmons on women's college basketball: "It feels like it's more in the public consciousness than it was"


At about the 31:00 mark of his podcast with Chuck Klosterman, Bill Simmons talks at length about women's basketball. (Download here) The best part - given Simmons' past commentary on the WNBA - is when he explains that she could probably hold her own in the NBA and then expresses disbelief when Klosterman says that he doesn't think he's ever watched Maya Moore. There's then an extended discussion about when a women's basketball player might make the NBA. Let's not go crazy though: he doesn't watch women's college basketball, but this year's Final Four made an impression on him.
