What makes this all hilarious is that the league isn't even about basketball. They are a bunch of activists. Clark brings money and attention to the league and they resent her because she doesn't check certain boxes. Eff them. I wish the league would fold a thousand times over.

I followed some of the teams when the league first formed. I was a big fan of the Toxic Shock, which was the Detroit franchise that later moved to Tulsa and was coached by Nolan Richardson. They moved the team to Dallas, earning Red Wings as their new name. The Milwaukee Froth were pretty fun to watch when they were in the league. They had a guard named Michelle Yeestie who had an itchy shooting finger and used to put up shots from everywhere. The Santa Fe Taco were a pretty good team but they folded, as were the Chicago Flow, who are also defunct after bleeding money and operating in the red for years. They can't seem to keep these teams afloat for long enough to build a fanbase, unfortunately.
Good post.

You could find 5 guys in the gym that could play with any starting 5 in the WNBA.

It's only a matter of time until some of the broke NBA players "change" their sex to female so they can sign a WNBA contract and make some money. Can you imagine a 50 year old Allen Iverson playing against these women?

When will everyone realize that they are watching championship wrestling not the WNBA?
All this fake hype and manufactured rivalries and vendettas meant to create interest and viewership seems to be working so far. How else can one explain people’s sudden interest in an unwatchable sport?

I keep expecting to turn on ESPN and see Gordon Solie come back from the grave so Angel Reese can look into the camera and tell us to hurry and buy tickets to the game in the Fort Hesterley Armory so we can see what she’s going to do to Caitlin Clark.

It’s the same bad basketball it was a year ago.

RIP Gordon Solie!!!

“What if we got all tatted up, became lesbians and embarrassed ourselves on TV 3-4 times a week? There’s a cool 60k in it for us if we do.”
I guess it's still better than the nail salon jobs they would have otherwise. Maybe.

I feel like there's a theme here.

It ain't an act. They are idiots.
Exactly. Clark could be the one to - at least temporarily - save the WNBA, but the rest of the players can’t stand the idea of her being their “savior.” It would not surprise me at all if she was playing in Europe in two years. (Or just said “Eff this; I’ll just be a stay at home mom instead.”)

I encourage everyone to watch the movie "Lady Ballers" which is hilarious and brilliant. It's full of many good moments, both profound and priceless. But perhaps the most earnest moment is when the coach, trying to convince his transvestite player that he's a man, drops him to the ground with a punch to the nuts. :lol:
