Me: How many teams have you coached?
Patricia: Roughly about 9 if you include assistant jobs.
Me: What are your feelings towards the difference in pay between the NBA and WNBA.
Patricia: I definitely feel there is a gap, I have witnessed the hard work the ladies put in and the time that is equal to what the men do.
Me: Do you feel there is a way to resolve this?
Patricia: Definitely if enough time was put in fixing the problem. I love the league but there are somethings that they should work on improving for the women.
