Superstar professional athletes often own luxurious items. WNBA superstars are no different.
On Monday, Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart showed her new car, a Maserati on her Instagram:
A new Maserati starts at well over $70,000. But Stewart’s WNBA salary is just $56,793 this season per the WNBA Collective Bargaining Agreement. So how could she get it? The answer is pretty simple actually: overseas play.
Stewart has played for Shanghai Baoshun Dahua in China’s WCBA since the 2016-17 season. Her exact salary is unclear, but like most WNBA superstars who play overseas, their salaries in Europe or Asia are multiple times what their salaries are in the States.
Go ahead and make your money Stewie!
