The discussions surrounding women’s basketball continue to spark controversy, with Jason Whitlock reentering the conversation on Wednesday. He argued that Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese are being overpaid in the WNBA, attributing it to external efforts to instill a “sense of entitlement” in players like Reese and Clark.

“In more than 30 years of history, the WNBA has never once turned a profit, what business overpays? They’re already overpaid at $75,000 a year,” Whitlock exclaimed during the “Truth Bomb” segment of his “Fearless” podcast. 

“What they’re trying to create in these women is a sense of entitlement. ‘Oh, you’re owed something, you’re mistreated. You know what, you should be just like Megan Rapinoe! You should be just like all the angry feminists that have dominated the WNBA and led it to 30-plus years of no profits and total irrelevance. You need to mimic their behavior.’”
