I do agree that women should be paid amount if they are doing the same job, but alas the WNBA and NBA aren’t the same job.
If everything was equal this would make sense, but it isn’t equal.
NBA players play more games and generate more revenue than their WNBA counterparts. if the Sue Bird made what LeBron made she would be making more than the entire’s league revenue.
That isn’t downplaying Bird’s accomplishments, but she is being paid based off what the league makes not because of her gender.
