What a controversy in which Draymond Green, player of the Golden State Warriors, has gotten after some statements. The player is back in the spotlight after claiming to be tired of complaints from players asking for a deal and equal salary on and off the court.
“They’re hurting themselves if they just complain. They are not giving the necessary steps to change the situation and combat the wage gap. The argument that is usually used to avoid this equality is the relative to income. And they will continue to use it against him “he said in an interview with journalist Kerith Burke.
Green’s words already have some reactions by stars of the WNBA What Angel McCoughtry, who assured that the player does not know what actions she and others have taken to achieve salary parity.
Even, Nneka Ogwumike, president of the WNBA Players Association, compared Green’s words with those of Shaquille O’Neal last March when he assured before Candace Parker that the hoops of the women’s league had to be lowered so that there were more points.
“These are words that make me think of a lack of education and ignorance on the matter, although I do not mean it in a negative sense. I like to check that we have allies who try improve things. But I think there is still a lot to be done in education issues and it is possible to solve with dialogue“Ogwumike stated.
