We all know that NBA players have a lot of love and respect for their women brethren in the WNBA. A whole cast of players from Devin Booker to Draymond Green have said a lot from their admiration of the WNBA to them even learning a thing or two on how to play from the way they do in the W.
But it means something entirely different when this man endorses your league.
Yeah—that is LeBron James giving a postgame presser after his Cleveland Cavaliers suffered defeat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors saying he plans to check out a few women’s hoops games this summer.
Well, the King can start with tonight’s doubleheader on NBA TV when the New York Liberty face the Dallas Wings at 8 p.m. ET and the Chicago Sky face the Phoenix Mercury at 10 p.m. ET
Then there’s also a tripleheader on the same channel on Sunday—Dallas Wings/Washington Mystics at 3p, Phoenix Mercury/LA Sparks at 5p, and San Antonio Stars/Seattle Storm at 7p.
There’s also plenty of notable matchups over the next month or so as well—including Washington Mystics/Minnesota Lynx at 8p on June 23 (ESPN2) and Sparks/Lynx on July 6 (ESPN2) at 8p.
Also notable on the W’s schedule is this very big event happening on July 22—the All Star Game at Seattle’s Key Arena. Someone tell him to circle that date on his calendar too—and, if possible, make a trip out to the Emerald City.
