Female basketball stars, as compared to their male counterparts in the NBA, earn not as much of salary. Maya Moore, being a lady basketball player, is no exception.
A recorded $150,000 net worth in 2015, Maya annually earns a sum of $60,000. These records seem very little, but as per the fan base and craze for WNBA, these amounts are in great height. For a detailed study of Maya’s income.
The fans and the public must continually support and promote the WNBA if they want their female stars to collect much more than they are being remunerated currently.

???????????????????????? BIG TIME SHOT @MooreMaya— Jared Sullinger (@Jared_Sully0) October 10, 2015
Nasty Women? Really?
Veteran Maya Moore continued to show her passion for the game into the do-or-die Game 5 Minnesota Lynx-Los Angeles Sparks matchup and that too coming off a 31-point Game 4 performance.
Although Sparks had a slight edge in the match, thanks to Candace Parker who scored 28 points and led Sparks to dethrone the champion Lynx. But, before a commercial break, ESPN2 then telecasted highlights of Moore, and as they rolled the footage, one of the announcers, Rebecca Lobo, insulted Moore by calling her "such a nasty woman."
Although it is not clear, what might be the meaning of the word nasty? It must have felt bad !
Well, I would like to wish Maya an excellent future. Hope her career reaches a great height, and she establishes herself as a basketball legend.
All the best Maya. The fan base is always with you, cheering and rooting for you.
GOOD LUCK and ALL THE VERY BEST, MAYA MOORE!
