Breaking Barriers

Caitlin Clark could be on track to be one of the highest-paid female athletes ever. The Iowa basketball star has quickly become one of the country’s biggest college athletes, and her star is only growing during March Madness.

She’ll almost certainly be the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft but that won’t be too lucrative. Even the best WNBA players only make around $200,000 a year. Well, she now has an avenue to make much more money. Ice Cube revealed recently that his Big3 basketball league is offering Clark $5 million to play in the league. The famous rapper has been more known for Ice Cube movies in recent years but has also committed a lot of money to basketball.

That would make her the highest-paid female basketball player ever! Plus, Ice Cube revealed that her contract wouldn’t stop her from playing in the WNBA and the Big3 schedule doesn’t overlap with the WNBA schedule.

 

An Offer Caitlin Clark Can’t Refuse?

I’m not super knowledgeable about all the inner workings of women’s basketball but from my understanding, many players play in overseas leagues in the offseason to supplement some income. Accepting this offer from Big3 would keep Caitlin Clark in the States while also paying her more money.

I’m not really sure how she could turn this down. The $5 million would be for eight regular season Big3 games and two playoff games so she’s getting $5 million for 10 games. If this offer is legit and there’s nothing shady going on, I can’t fathom a scenario where she wouldn’t take it.

 

Disrupting Stigmas

This would be huge for women’s sports. It proves that some women athletes are huge draws and are deserving of big money. This could be a game-changer for all women’s basketball players. Now, that’s a lot of pressure put on Clark but she’s worked her ass off to be one of the best women’s college basketball players ever.

This also paves the way for Angel Reese to get a massive contract offer her way. I know former Raiders CEO Amy Trask is heavily involved with the Big3 and she’s one of the original trailblazers for powerful women in sports. Clark would be in good hands working with her in the Big3. Like I said, I think Clark needs to take this deal but we’ll see how she decides to handle it. She’s focused on the NCAAB tournament right now so I doubt we’ll have an answer soon.
