Women’s sports deserve as much interest as men’s, and that’s not debatable. And thankfully, leagues like the Women’s National Basketball Association they’re getting all the recognition and a boatload of enthusiasm from fans.
If you, too, are a fan of Women’s basketball or basketball in general, spice things up this game season by booking yourself tickets to the live game!
The WNBA is played in a specific season each year. The usual season of the tournament runs between May and September. But in the years when there are the Olympic games, this season gets disrupted.
Some WNBA teams are linked directly to the NBA in terms of having complementary teams. These are: Indiana Fever, Minnesota Lynx, Los Angeles Sparks, Phoenix Mercury, and New York Liberty.
All of these teams and even the others that play in the WNBA have some fantastic players like Candace Parker, Brianna Stewart, Sylvia Fowles, Tina Charles, etc. But the real fun comes in the All-Star Games.
The All-Star WNBA games include the best players from the Eastern and the Western WNBA regions. These players compete with each other in two teams - one from the east and another from the West. The All-Star games, too, are a part of the regular season but see much more crowds because of their competitive and electric spirit.
Are you an Eastern Conference fan or devoted to the Western Conference through and through? Either way, you shouldn’t miss out on the All-Star games this coming season.
The WNBA does not just signify the growth of basketball in America and around the world, but it goes a long way in showing the inclusion of women in sports. When it first started in 1997 after being approved by the NBA in 1996, it had only eight teams competing with each other.
Today, there are a total of 12 teams in the league, and regular franchises keep happening all the time. Six of them have NBA sister teams and often play in the same arena.
