In tough economic times I could see a number of NBA franchises letting go of their "sister" WNBA teams. The Houston Comets just went belly-up. It certainly helps to have the NBA providing financial support. But I was always under the impression that NBA support was supposed to be temporary until the WNBA could stand on its own two feet. I could be wrong.
