Men's basketball is more popular because of the unfair advantages given. They bring in more money because the media favors them, and neglects women's basketball.
Men Professional basketball players get paid so much more than women basketball players that it makes women look weak and undesirable.
Gender should not be the reason for such a large pay gap.
The WNBA and MNBA need to make more of an effort to make women and men's basketball pay equal, and not have the WNBA depend so much on the MNBA.
