re: NBA decides it wants to lose more money on WNBA. Big raises for players.
I wonder if the NBA subsidizes the WNBA in order to get large tax breaks from the government sort of like how Amazon and Netflix claims to be “losing money” every year.

I don’t care. Next time the ladies complain about not being paid enough (which will inevitably happen again at some point), we can now point to the fact that WNBA salaries are a much larger piece of the pie than NBA salaries are.



They already were larger than they deserve. It's funny no one saw it that way though. This is a textbook case study in socialism.

The WNBA players didn't deserve what they got based on the market but the ultra rich NBA subsidized them. Will this be enough? Doubt it. They'll be bitching again before too long.

This league needs to fold. They are a financial failure.

I don’t mind the true star players like a Brittney Griner getting higher salaries.

The problem with raising them for everyone is that the WNBA is a barnacle on the arse of the NBA. If it were capable of producing its own money, I wouldn’t mind salaries being raised overall. But it is a drain on revenue from the NBA.


If I were CP3, LeBron, Curry, etc, I would be pissed at money that could go to me or my teammates being spent on people who don’t sell tickets.

It's kind of the opposite. Whether the NBA is doing this as an investment in quality or as a move to better its PR, it's a private company doing what it feels is most in its interests to do.

Capitalism revolves around private businesses making the decisions they feel are best for their own interests.

I'm so appalled those women had only a low 6 figure average salary. Simply disgusting and shameful. Very few people can survive on such crumbs.

Why would NBA care, in last deal they got the suckers at ESPN to continue showing their games, and put $$ into the league.

Well. Luckily, they and their agents aren’t dumb.

All those girls who watch, along with fans buy shoes and products. Worldwide.

It’s nice to see them get paid maternity leave. Think we can all at least agree on that.

Meh

The idea of paying somebody for work they arent doing is dumb

Imagine LPGA or womens tennis. How would they do paid maternity leave?

Social Engineering at its worst.

Just buy all the players big houses, NBA.

Buy them a bunch of cars.

But for the love of God, take this awful sport off of TV.
