How do you guys think the WNBA can attract more fans and spectators? Let's be real, the WNBA is rarely acknowledged on major sports sites and ESPN. I always wondered why, but I just assumed it was because the NBA is much more competitive and accessible compared to the WNBA. What are your thoughts?


Let's be frank for a minute. The biggest difference between the NBA and the WNBA is that the WNBA is not exciting. Sure the women have skills and excellent fundamentals, but that does not translate well for ratings and viewership. Now, you may be thinking that I'm a pig for thinking that way, but I actually got that answer from a female. She was commenting about it years ago when the subject came up. The first thing she said is that the WNBA is boring. Wow!!!
