NCAA made headlines for all the wrong reasons this past week. The women basketball players were disrespected at the highest level. March is one of the most exciting times of the year for college basketball and the women are not able to enjoy their experiences due to the blatant inequalities.

Small sized weights rooms and the quality of food compared to the men athletes sent social media in a uproar. Paul George says, “It wasn’t right, it wasn’t right. NCAA, they were wrong for that. When you look at the space they had and the equipment, that they originally had. It’s not right.”

George mentioned the women put their body on the line as much the men and they deserve equal treatment. “It’s no difference, they prepare and they deserve the same that men get. I thought it was great the NCAA did what they did to make their correction but at the same time I thought it was a slap in the face that they posted it.”


The NCAA made a post showing the changes that were made, but it was still distasteful, considering the fact that it’s Women’s History Month. George feels unsettled because the NCAA cleaned what their wrongdoing and moved on, “For them to post and say this is what we did, it was kind of upsetting. At the end of the day they did what they were supposed to do by fixing it.”

Women inequalities in sports has been a issue for a very long time. Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Ja Morant and Steph Curry bringing awareness to the mistreatment of women is rare from NBA players despite the countless problems for years.

Curry tweeted “Come on NCAA, yall tripping, tripping.” Kyrie Irving shared on his Instagram, “Soooo NCAA! This is how we are doing our Queens. We can’t tolerate this. They deserve more!” Ja Morant tweeted this is disrespectful.
