Re: Ridiculous numbers I heard about the WNBA (salaries)
Even the lowest earning players, pulling down $34k a year don't have it so bad. I know all sorts of people who are worse off than that financially. I also know plenty of people who earn a lot more than that, but would trade places in a second.
Playing basketball for a living and making enough so that you can afford to eat and hold an apartment? Compared to 99% of humans on planet earth, that is a pure dream lifestyle.
