The inequities of professional basketball

In our woke world and the call for equity in results instead of equality of opportunity professional basketball needs a modern day overhaul.

LeBron James makes a lot of money. It’s well deserved. No one currently has the talents he has on the basketball court. He’s accomplished and dominates his sport. But yet the WNBA, as a league, makes less money per year than James alone. The inequities are unjustifiable!

I hereby call for the NBA to start subsidizing the WNBA and bring all professional basketball players salaries in line. The free market can’t be trusted to pay a fair wage to women that are just as accomplished as the men.
