Good point. They all play overseas and do quite well. You have to also factor in how short the WNBA season is. Just playing in the WNBA ensures that those girls get good gigs playing overseas where they get paid over eight months, then can make some money in the summers playing in the WNBA....not a bad summer gig..which is all it is.
