Isn’t HVL a 5th year senior? I believe she’s out of eligibility right?

This is her 4th year. She has her extra covid year just like Angel.

NIL can keep the players in college because they can make more here than in the WNBA.


The university isn’t paying her. The same money she’s making now she’ll make in the wnba in addition to a wnba salary

Do you think she’ll just lose all her sponsors when she leaves lsu?


Sponsorship and/or NIL is all about popularity. She has almost 3 million followers on Instagram, the top 2 players in the wnba might not have that combined

The idea that she won’t make the same money in the WNBA is so stupid. Those same NIL deals can follow her to the WNBA plus more.

The top stars in the WNBA aren’t making their money off their salary. It’s the endorsements they get.

I say she's gone because she's tired of class, unless she is close to graduating. There's no reason that she can't continue to get the endorsement money that she's generated.

She basically created the whole new wave for women's sports other than Livvy. It's possible that it follows her and she won't have to go to class.

Maybe she feels she doesn't fit in on this team and is okay going to Europe to play?

Yeah dude is delusional and she is too if she thinks that. As soon as she leaves LSU she won’t be talked about at all unless it’s for 2 min/week on ESPN WN


lol. This is so goddamn dumb. She is a social media influencer and will be whatever field she goes into. Most of her 4M followers don’t give a shite if she is playing basketball for LSU, the New York Liberty, or the Minnesota Motherfrickers.

When you have 4M followers hanging on your every word, the Benjamins will roll. Her influence has far surpassed the necessity of her playing basketball.

Angel NIL both with LSU and on her own is actually over $2M/year. And the endorsements. She has over 4M social media followers, the main ones X, IG, TT, and also others we don't hear about daily. She gets paid separate for those accounts, paid whenever she posts comments, videos, etc. (Did you hear about Dunn getting paid $500K for one post?) Angel will continue the big bucks from social media alone.
Shaq has plans for her with Reebok shoes and clothing line after she leaves LSU. She will be designing her own Reebok shoes and clothing lines. She will be doing modeling too, she has modeling companies and magazines lined up already. She will not be hurting for $$. She is a senior and wouldn't fault her if she left. She will make best decision for her and her family.

She will have a difficult time in the WNBA. She will rebound well but her shooting skills may be her downfall. she has no outside shot and her scoop shots under the basket are going to be rejected. She's going to be physically pushed around in the pro game. But she's a Tiger and we'll always be pulling for her to become an All-Pro!

What I don't think these players understand is that their current fame is because they play women's basketball at LSU. If Angel just up and decides to quit because she thinks she's transcended basketball, she will fall into oblivion real quick. Her platform is ESPN and LSU, and if she doesn't realize that, she will be old news.

Both ladies should stay in college as long as possible.

her platform is the 3 million Instagram followers she has which is twice as much as any player in the wnba or in womens college basketball

Why can’t yall grasp the fact that Angel Reese is making Angel Reese money not lsu

I forget the WNBA exists until I see a television spot promoting a game.
