WNBA – The W stands for Why

The Houston Comets, a four-time champion and one of the WNBA's original teams has shut down due to financial reasons. My biggest question remains, "How are ANY WNBA teams still financially viable?" Have you ever been to a WNBA game? Do you even know someone who has? There's a reason the NBA Top 10 ESPN highlights typically consist of 10 dunks. It's because they're awesome. They're one of the main reasons the game is so exciting to watch. Instead, during a WNBA game, the most exciting play-by-play you get to witness is a block-steal, thrown up court, where a lone woman goes up for a dynamic...layup. Either lower the hoop to 8 feet, or kiss the league goodbye, ladies.
