Nike or Adidas could fix this shit tomorrow. Take your time to read this article. I’m cursing because it pissed me off. If you read this and you don’t realize that there is a serious disservice being done in women’s basketball and in professional sports you just don’t care.
According to the most recent collective-bargaining agreement, first-year players in the W.N.B.A. received a base salary of $39,676 to $50,617 in 2016, not including performance bonuses, housing stipends and other benefits. A player in her third year made as much as $54,609.
I’ve said in posts over and over that Nike with its 8 Billion dollar advertising budget and adidas with a smaller version of this budget could spend the money it takes to move the WNBA season and literally fix this problem overnight by being creative with the promotion of the brand. Someone needs to listen. Use the source link to read this article.
