Every year, at least one notable WNBA player lets us know that she is unhappy with her pay because LeBron James, Stephen Curry, or Russell Westbrook pulls in a lot more. They say this without even paying lip service to the fact that these men are some of the greatest athletes who have ever walked this earth, and that the WNBA loses money every year. (more…)
There has been a monumental paradigm shift occurring in the sport of basketball over several decades. I believe it has reached its summit, or at least I hope we’re close. Few have spoken up while many have stayed silent, possibly out of fear that they may be ostracized, fired, or worse, as is par for the course when one talks about diversity or makes a funny joke about AIDS.

The myth is still being propagated that nobody wants to watch a dynasty demolish the rest of the league, but the ratings are as good as ever and the NBA is thriving. However, as a humongous big fan and former player of the sport, it sucks to watch this GS team. Let’s talk about the state of the association.
