I think that game with Iowa vs. LSU was the beginning of the mainstreaming of women's basketball. It reminded me of the women's world cup game that more people watched. That world cup game changed the way men and women viewed world cup women's soccer matches. This tournament seems to be the same watershed moment.

Very funny cameo on SNL weekend update. Spoiler Alert, she signed an apron for Michael Che.

Everybody is pissing-and-moaning about her expected WNBA contract: worth $338,056 over the course of four years. She will earn $76,535 in her rookie season this summer, and is projected to earn an annual salary of $97,582 by the end of her four-year contract.

Well, yep, a NBA Ball Boy probably makes that much!! BUT, , , , , Show Me The Money!

>>>>. The WNBA currently makes an estimated $60m annually from selling its media rights and licensing deals with Amazon, CBS, and ION, Front Office Sports reports. In comparison, the average NBA team is worth approximately $3.85bn - with the New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, and the Los Angeles Lakers each worth more than $6bn, according to Forbes

That salary is nothing. The endorsements will make her a millionaire in very short order, if they haven't already.

I am sure that salary number is a pay cut from her NIL $$$$$

Nike is going to make a namesake shoe, so she's doing pretty well. It's the other players that should be making more.

But this is how it starts. Players like her and Angel Reese bring in the audience, and then the women can start making demands from the owners.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Caitlin Clark scored a team-high 20 points but committed 10 turnovers, the most in a career debut in WNBA history, as her Indiana Fever fell 92-71 to the Connecticut Sun in their season opener Tuesday at Mohegan Sun Arena.

She's making the transition, the Indiana team seems to be a bit of an underdog. Give her time to settle in.

I watched a little bit of the game last night. She seems overwhelmed. Sold out arena though. The NY team was hounding her and not letting her do anything is what I saw.

Interesting though. first wnba game I ever thought about tuning into. I just watched a little bit. New York has a great team. They looked really good.
