Caitlin Clark isn't taking a pay cut by joining the WNBA, despite claims suggesting otherwise.

This misconception, perpetuated by individuals like Darren Rovell, fails to acknowledge the nature of Clark's earnings.

Her current valuation reflects endorsement deals, not a salary, as Iowa doesn't pay its student-athletes.

National brands continue to support her, ensuring her income remains stable.

Suggestions that she's losing out financially are baseless and misleading.

Instead of detracting from her achievements ,

we should celebrate her success and recognise the positive impact she'll have on the WNBA's growth.
