The 2014 CBA, which the players just opted out of, has been much-maligned. When asked about that contract — the last one she negotiated — [Pam] Wheeler says that there was an incredibly good reason for that: The Los Angeles Sparks almost folded, after the owner decided that she could no longer afford the team because she was losing so much money.

"I don't know if there's ever been a time in the history of collective bargaining where a team folded in the midst of negotiations," Wheeler said. "All of the arguments from the league are around the fact that they're losing money. So how do you counter that?"
