Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker responded to debate about lowering the rim in women’s basketball with an emphatic dunk on Friday.

“10 feet, eight feet, it don’t matter,” Parker said in an Instagram video.

The dunk came in response to a column written Wednesday by ESPNW’s Kate Fagan, in which Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi disagreed with Chicago Sky forward Elena Delle Donne’s opinion that the rims in women’s basketball should be lowered.

“Might as well put us in skirts and back in the kitchen,” Taurasi said of the potential change.
