Can the WNBA really pull off its proposed season start in just a week, during the middle of a pandemic, in one of America’s COVID-19 epicenters?
And even if it can, should it?
What risks should players and staff be willing or unwilling to accept? How far off will the WNBA’s plan be from the much more well-funded NBA, who is rebooting nearby during the same time?
WNBA analyst Kelsey Trainor joins host Gabe Ibrahim to discuss all the potential ramifications, adjustments and scenarios, as well as the legal curveballs that could arise.

Gabe is the host of TBW’s Get The W podcast. He is a WNBA reporter and analyst as well as the Executive Editor of Winsidr.com. As a lawyer, Gabe became obsessed with the front office maneuvers of NBA teams and noticed a lack of coverage surrounding the WNBA salary cap. As part of the solution, he covers front office decisions and shines a light on intelligent coverage throughout the WNBA via Get The W.
