Nike Faces Backlash for Ignoring WNBA in 'Week Without Hoops' Post

Nike's basketball division posted on social media lamenting a "week without hoops" after the NBA Western Conference finals ended, ignoring the ongoing WNBA games. The post was quickly deleted but drew criticism from women's basketball fans and media. Despite Nike being an investor in the WNBA and promoting female athletes, the oversight was surprising.

Nike's account has shown support for the women's game, highlighting stars like A'ja Wilson and Sabrina Ionescu. Under Armour took a jab at Nike's error, emphasizing their support for the WNBA. The incident highlights the growing popularity and importance of the WNBA in professional basketball. (Source: FOS)
