Sue Bird is one of the greatest WNBA players to play the sport, unfortunately, she only gets paid a tiny fraction of what her male counterparts make.

On Saturday, WNBA’s Erica Wheeler posted a graphic that showed how Bird and LeBron James had similar accomplishments throughout their careers yet had a huge pay gap between them.

Wheeler’s graphic caused some outrage from WNBA fans.

Others reasoned that LeBron makes more money because of the revenue the NBA brings in.
