Ain't gonna happen regardless. There's no demand.Too bad there's not a G League equivalent. They haven't figured out yet how have women's pro basketball make money.
People get so butthurt about it being sexist, but there's effectively zero interest and it's very clear. Women's sports aren't generally accepted as being in the same zip code of excitement as men's. If they were they'd sell tickets and make money.The fact that the last three games the Iowa women played generated more interest than 25+ years of WNBA is absolutely hilarious.
Usually it's the home team and the away team.I get that some people had daughters play or think it's a hoot to watch, but 99.99% of the population couldn't name 2 WNBA teams.

It will be interesting to see what kind of a bump in the ratings Caitlin gives the WNBA if any. I think I will watch my first WNBA game the first opportunity I have to watch a game involving Caitlin.

Yep it's just not exciting to most people. The college game always carries a bunch of backstory and drama to make it more like a soap opera, but the pro game just isn't worth tuning into.Also, women's professional b-ball is not a money maker. Actually, it is pretty much subsidized by the NBA, to my understanding. I think Ashley Joen's contract after being a second round pick is only going to be like $60,000 something a year to start. Now, that is a decent salary for a young individual just starting but it is no where near other pro sport leagues.
