Speaker 1 (00:00):
All right, as you guys may have heard, Kitlyn Clark
was the number one pick in the WNBA draft and
she'll be playing for the Indiana Fever. Okay, congratulations to
Kitlin Clark. But what shocked everybody was her salary for
playing professional basketball. Three hundred and thirty eight thousand, fifty
six dollars for four years.

Speaker 2 (00:19):
Okay, that's over a four year period.

Speaker 1 (00:22):
This breaks down to seventy six a little over seventy
six thousand dollars in twenty twenty four.

Speaker 2 (00:27):
This year, seventy eight.

Speaker 1 (00:29):
It goes up to seventy eight next year, then in
twenty twenty six eighty five thousand, then in twenty twenty
seven over ninety seven thousand dollars a year. Now consider
this the NBA mail players. We all know they make
more money, but they earn an average annual salary of
over ten million dollars annually.

Speaker 2 (00:50):
Ten million dollars. This is for the men the NBA.

Speaker 1 (00:53):
Here. And to make it worse, that's average. That's average, though, Tommy.
And to make it worse, the mascots, the mascots of
the NBA teams make a lot more per year than
wb W NBA players. The Denver Nuggets mascot, for instance,

selling insulting.

Ah, So what are we saying here? This is this
is a mess. Talk about this. This is horrible.

Speaker 1 (01:51):
Yes, but but on the brighter side, Caitlyn, will you page,
go ahead and say it.

Speaker 2 (01:57):
I will say it again.

Speaker 3 (01:58):
Listen to me. Women's basketball is great to watch, but
you have to put more bodies in those stands so
that you can get more TV rights and you can
have more viewership. And women have got to support women athletics.

(02:20):
This is on you guys are going to the game.

Speaker 4 (02:24):
We're going to see men play, you see women play. No,
say everybody, no, no, because it's two different games we're watching.

Speaker 3 (02:38):
But women should support women athletics. I don't. I don't
see why that's a hard ask. I really don't. There
are more women in this world than there are men.

Speaker 2 (02:49):
Go to the games.

Speaker 1 (02:50):
And women then they make more money and get more
TV exposure and all of that.

If women want more pay in this sports world, you've
got to support your team. That's all it is.

Speaker 2 (03:02):
Just go to the game, buy ticket, go to the.
