Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving plans on giving 1.5 million dollars to supplement income of WNBA players who will be missing the season.
Every time a player speaks his mind about WNBA, it notices, and even though the NBA generates a lot more money than the other league, it’s important to create awareness towards the value the WNBA brings to the table.
That’s why Kyrie Irving plans on giving 1.5 million dollars to supplement WNBA incomes for players who won’t be playing this season, whether it’s for a COVID-19 threat or for social justice reasons.

This is a big step coming from Kyrie, considering that the WNBA has one of the lowest incomes sport wise, barely making 12 million dollars, comparing to NBA salaries, in which just one player could earn that kind of money or even more.
Way to go, Kyrie!
