Girls Jumping to WNBA?

  The NBA again this year has another high school phenom in Lebron James getting all the attention. He is expected to be the number 1 pick in this months draft. Since the guys have been jumping to the pro ranks, would it be possible for the girls to jump to the WNBA.

"There is not the same kind of money in the WNBA that there is in the NBA to make girls want to make the jump out at this point." Said Kilgore College Women's basketball coach Contina James.   Kate Norris who plays high school basketball in Tyler said "Seeing (Lebron James) making 90 million dollars on a shoe contract. Yes I would like to see a girl make the jump."
