You can’t blame Twitchy for the lack of reporting on the WNBA. Just a week ago, we reported how both the New York Liberty and the Seattle Storm, all wearing Black Lives Matter shirts, walked off the court during the national anthem as part of the league’s social justice initiative. ESPN carried it, but thanks to COVID-19, the stands were completely empty as opposed to mostly empty.
We don’t know if that helps with the WNBA’s weekly trivia challenge:
Have you been keeping up with the 2020 season? Test your knowledge every Monday to see if you're the biggest #WNBA fan!

I can’t tell you how much it tickles me that I have the power to ratio the @WNBA whenever I please. It’s glorious.

I missed it, I was washing my hair.

I'm still stunned this league is even still in existence. I don't know a single sports fan that follows this.

The first question in any @WNBA Trivia Contest is always the same.
“Did you know there was a WNBA?”
— Theodore (@RefDemo) August 3, 2020
there's a SEASON? I thought it was just a single demonstration game. huh.

Pretty lonely up here at the top of WNBA trivia.

Can't the players' parents… I mean "fans"… just do this over group text?

I got 2/4 by guessing and wasn’t told the correct answers. The quiz is as bad as the WNBA

The engagements on this are laughable. I’m sorry, your players deserve better than you have in charge

I wanted to but then I saw the teams walk off the court during the National Anthem, so no way.

Is anybody? You couldn’t pay me enough money to sink so low to watch a @WNBA game after the crap they pulled walking off the court for the National Anthem.

Did you leave the court during the national anthem? pic.twitter.com/oNdx1oR5sd

I didn't know they played games…
I just saw them leave the court for the Anthem…
I assumed it was over so I turned the channel.

I'm gonna kneel this one out, thanks.

Are they the spoiled brats who walked off the court during the national anthem? Not interested.

Lol nope. I’m good. I’m exhausted of politics.

Sorry not sorry, taking a knee on the WNBA & other luxuries played by elitists like MLB, NBA, NFL.
Cancel all sports, join a charity & do something real.

Anti American League deserves to fold. Chicks be acting like we owe them and should watch. Go Away.
— GeorgiaOnMyMind (@GaHeartof) August 3, 2020
Are the questions "have you heard of the WNBA?" or "can you name a single player?" If so, does anyone say yes?
— SILAWZ (@stucknLAwzmbies) August 3, 2020
You guys have been around long enough to have trivia?
Who would have thought?
— 1LP (@Onelonelyplayah) August 3, 2020
I'm quite sure that most everyone is a bigger WNBA fan than me.
— Big Mama (@BigMama279) August 3, 2020
How do we cancel the WNBA?? ??♂️
