NY, Chicago, and LA are big enough to support as many franchises as you can dream up, but Detroit, Phoenix, Seatle, etc, I just don't see it happening. Draft regional college stars like the Charlotte Bobcats did, so that you start right off with a bit of a following.

Don't try to market yourself as being almost as good as the NBA - try to focus on areas where you are actually better. Is it a better team game? I don't know, I've only watched it once or twice. I bet there's no fighting though, so it's safe to take your kids.


Even if it is a dream for you, it's not worth buying a WNBA team. You'd lose much more than you'd earn. Frankly, I wouldn't buy a team(no matter how bad I want to) unless I'm guaranteed to break even at the very worst.

Breaking even or making a profit is never a guarantee in any business venture.

Maybe not, but you want to find a business where there is a very good chance of it. The WNBA is not the answer.

Does any of them have endorsement deals? I would think so but never heard much about them signing deals. Then again thier salaries are hrdly ever reported. They cant live off basketball deals...i mean they can but not lavishly like you would expect.

With all due respect, who cares about the WNBA? What is the appeal?

I cannot stand watching the WNBA. I will watch Olympic womens hoop, but thats it.

Damn.. these chicks have got to go into Women's Tennis.. they pay equal prize money in the Grand Slams (winner gets 1.something million) and they get to play best of 3 sets, as opposed to the best of 5 sets the men have to play.

I watched part of a WNBA game once. I hate to say this, but it was worse than boring. It was frustrating, excruciating. They couldn't even hit shots and lay-ups consistently. Shouldn't they be able to hit shots and lay-ups? I don't know, it really sucked, I know that.
And because of this, it does not surprise me that it loses money, even if it saddens me. It also saddens me that the players are making so little money. I would ask that people watch it out of charity, but then I would be a hypocrite, because there is no way I would do it.

Actually it's not even worth for most of these women. Considering the time and sacrifice spent away from their husbands and children. Granted, their season is not as long as the NBA but there are a lot of mothers here that are making less than 40k a year.

I am doing a project for an Economics of Sports MicroTheory class and I need WNBA salaries. I would be so appreciative if you could attach that file regardless of how blurry it is. This would improve my project 10 fold. Thank you!
