      "What's the difference between the NBA and WNBA"? Answer: "The NBA makes a profit, but since nobody watches the WNBA, and nobody buys their merchandise, we don't. Also, if it weren't for the NBA subsidizing the millions of lost dollars each year just so they can keep the appearance of a socially conscious league, we would have folded years ago".

        Men: 82 games in 7 months, not including playoffs.
        Women: 83 games in 12 months, including playoffs.
        The more you learn about women's basketball, the more pathetic it gets....

          American men, esp the white men, are sexist. The typical male that does not play sports themselves are the ones probably in the comments now telling women to make them a sandwich or get in the kitchen because that is the typical ego of the pathetic male and their toxic masculinity. Even now they're letting white men rape women and children and not even giving them jail time for their sex crimes. It's true they value women's sports way more overseas than they do here in Amerikkka where we also have a racist and sexist president who talks abt grabbing women by the pussy and no one bats an eye abt it.

            What does this have to do with the WNBA? Breanna Stewart makes 90% of her annual income overseas. She was injured overseas. She will accordingly not be able to play in the WNBA in 2019, where 10% of her income is derived. So what? Sure, it's a loss for the WNBA, but what does this have to do with WNBA pay? What would have been gained by the WNBA having paid Stewart at the time of her injury? She still wouldn't be able to play in 2019 so what's the point here?

                  She admits that they lost 12 million dollars. That's the end of the conversation. I really wish that the WNBA could be successful

                                I'd let my daughter play ball....but I'd tell her, "they don't make much money so play basketball as a side job. You will NOT become wealthy playing it because no one watches it." What happened to these women empowerment feminist? They claim to stick together, but women don't even support it.

                                        After 20+ years of losing millions each year, it’s time to stop calling it an investment. The WNBA is a social justice charity/league.

                                              No...uninformed analysts are sparking the debate again for “better” pay in a league that’s losing money. Female players makes pretty good money overseas, so y do the need to make more here? Ever see the fans overseas compared to the WNBA...that right there shows why pay is so low. Just becuz ur playing the same sport as a man doesn’t mean u should make what a man makes, even more then what u make now.

                                              U don’t wanna be a charity then, stop taking money from the nba and do it on ur own...oh wait u can’t

                                                The WNBA as a business loses 10 million dollars every year, the NBA is keeping you afloat just because.

It goes to show noone respect women in this world. You judge them by there looks. You pay guys that barely step foot on a court night in night out. But a female thats and mvp reigning champion have to go overseas to get their money. Lets take it back to high school. Some of the fans only go watch the girls play verses the boys. Go to different high school games and check it out. Just an excuse not to pay women. You know why the women dont have a crowd change the days the women play.

                                                                                      They’ve already given too much. The WNBA loses money.

                                                                                      If I was a woman I’d play tennis or do a non-basketball Olympic sport.

The WNBA puts out a money losing product. Now you are saying you're not asking for NBA pay. Until the WNBA becomes profitable the will make what they make.
