Why do WNBA player not make as much as nba players?
WNBA players do not make as much as NBA players because there is not as many revenue producing sponsors to market the league due to the fact that there are not nearly as many viewers who watch the WNBA as the NBA. The more people watch the sport, the more money advertisers will pay to market the sport, which means more exposure for the league and increased revenue from game attendance, jersey sales, community activities (etc.)
