It is troubling that these contentious stories eclipsed news regarding playoff standings or player acquisitions. Further, Wiggins’ comments arguably drew more media play than Nneka Ogwumike’s 2016 MVP season and game-winning championship shot.

Thanks for sharing that article, Pilight! The article was written by the same person (Alana Glass) who wrote the following piece from 2012, also from Forbes magazine.

She is also the creator of this website...

Why hasn't she stepped up and become a part-owner of a WNBA team by now?
